The heel of Italy’s boot, formed of the largely undiscovered Puglia and Basilicata regions, offers gentle walking trails through cultivated countryside and towns seemingly plucked from a storybook – ideal for a culture-packed walking adventure. This trip begins in the cave town of Matera, treasured by film directors and protected by UNESCO, before continuing to the highlights of the region: the Itria Valley hills, the white city of Ostuni, and the fairytale trulli houses of Alberobello.
  • Walk among the trulli houses of Alberobello
  • Discover Matera, a UNESCO-listed town dug into caves
  • Explore the all-white hilltop town of Ostuni
  • Walk over the Itria Valley hills to Locorotondo

Stay in three unique destinations: the cave town of Matera, the white city of Ostuni and the trulli town of Alberobello. Below are the hotels typically used on this trip.

Matera: Hotel Sassi or Fra I Sassi Residence (nights 1-3)





Our first three nights are spent in either Hotel Sassi (above) or Fra I Sassi Residence. Opened in 1996, Hotel Sassi took over a series of dwellings, some of which date to the 1500s. There’s an Italian spread for breakfast (most of the produce locally sourced) and wonderful views of Matera from the terrace. The 15-room Fra I Sassi offers similarly spectacular views plus rooms built from the caves themselves.

Ostuni: Masseria Morrone or Hotel La Terra (nights 4-5)



Our second accommodation is either Masseria Morrone or Hotel La Terra (above). The first is a 18th-century farmhouse outside Ostuni. Now run by the Laera family, it has a pool in the garden and rustic rooms. The second is set within a 13th-century building in the historic quarter of Ostuni. Along with an ideal location, it has a bar serving Apulian aperitifs and wine.

Alberobello: Hotel Ramapendula or Hotel Silva (nights 6-7)



We end our adventure either in Hotel Ramapendula (above) or Hotel Silva. The former has an outdoor swimming pool, Apulian restaurant and a location close to the UNESCO-listed centre of Alberobello. The latter is also a short walk from the centre, with individually themed rooms and a bar.
