Ostuni: White Town Walking Tour

1. Ostuni: White Town Walking Tour

Ostuni is one of the main tourist destinations of Puglia, called "White town" for the houses painted with white lime in the historical center. But Ostuni is not just culture and art, for several years the city has obtained the Blue Flag for the beautiful beaches and the coast, about 8 km from the center, and for the many services offered to tourists. The guided tour of Ostuni will start from Libertà square, where there is the grand palace of the municipality and where stands the baroque column of Sant'Oronzo, almost 21 meters high, built in local stone by Giuseppe Greco in 1771 as an ex voto, later to protection from famines and epidemics carried out by the saint. In Libertà Square you will also visit the archaeological excavations of the ancient walls and the defensive tower before taking Cattedrale street, full of local craft shops, commercial activities and typical local food product. You will then reach the cathedral dedicated to Santa Maria Assunta built in the fifteenth century. The façade is characterized by three elegant ogival portals and a large rose window of 24 rays.The interior, a Latin cross with three naves on columns, was rebuilt in the eighteenth century, with a painted ceiling and baroque chapels. Following the tour will continue along the Aragonese walls where you can admire a beautiful landscape of the Valle d'Itria until you reach the Porta Nova gate, one of the ancient gate of the town.

Cisternino: 2-Hour Authentic Italian Village Tour

3. Cisternino: 2-Hour Authentic Italian Village Tour

Cisternino is well worth a visit for its classic example of spontaneous architecture. The old city of Cisternino is both amazing and unforgettable through its wonderful atmosphere, great views of the Itria Valley, cute old buildings and friendly people. During the tour, you’ll visit the Church of San Nicola, known as the Mother Church, which was built in the 12th century over the previous 8th century Basilian church, whose foundations remain. Then, visit the Norman-Svevian Tower built in the 11th century by the Normans at 17 meters tall. It was largely rebuilt in the late 14th century and was remodeled several times in subsequent periods. Stop at the beautiful view overlooking the entire Itria Valley, a wonderful skyline of the valley with trulli and olive trees. In the old town, visit the most important noble historic buildings walking in the narrow alleys and on the white/ black chianche, a typical limestone floor. This village has many good restaurants for evening dining, a choice of good cafes for snacks during the day and good local shops selling all the authentic local produce you could want. An area of great beauty, too perfect to be real but real with incredible trulli.
