We had a wonderful tour! Our guide was waiting for us on the pier when our ship docked, showed us the less 'touristy' streets of Alberobello and the uncrowded villages of Locorotondo and Martina Franca, took us to a quaint trattoria for lunch, and got us back to the ship with time to spare. Thank You, Le Baccanti, for scheduling such a perfect day.

Apulia is a spectacular place, with many beautiful locations that can be hard to find. Having a private, luxury vehicle driven by a local English-speaking driver will help you unearth these amazing, off-the-beaten path sites. Once you have been picked up from your accommodations in Brindisi or at the port of Brindisi if you're arriving via cruise ship, you will be led by your private driver down narrow streets lined with historic olive trees and low stone walls.
Your first stop of the day on your Trulli and White Wine Tour will be Alberobello, a charming countryside village composed nearly exclusively from Trulli, the typical stone houses found only in this area. There are plenty of legends about these houses with the curious, conical stone roofs, but perhaps the best story is that these structures could be quickly dismantled when the tax collector came round to retrieve property taxes.
Once you have strolled through the streets of Alberobello, and viewed the Trulli thoroughly, you will proceed in great comfort in your luxury car through the Itria Valley to Locorotondo. Here you'll have the opportunity to taste the wonderful local white wines along with your meal at a great local restaurant we've booked for your lunch.
In the afternoon, your private full-day Alberobello Trulli and White Wine Tour can either proceed to a wonderful winery outside of Locorotondo for a tour and tasting, or your private driver can take you for a visit to the bustling town of Martina Franca, another Apulian jewel. Wander the streets and shop in the upscale stores with beautiful glass, ceramic, and gold jewelry - please let us know your preference upon booking. When your exploration of Puglia is complete, your private driver will return you safely to your drop-off point.
