Pensione

Clothing/Temperature In Italy (and Europe) temperatures vary significantly from north to south. For sightseeing around major cities, CIT recommends travellers have a covered shoulder and upper body option available at all times due to strict dress codes in many places of worship. Shorts and skirts must reach the knee. In summer, light weight cool clothing and comfortable foot wear is highly recommended. Note that evenings can be cooler so a warmer cover is a good idea.

Tips are not compulsory and in Italy there are no generally established rules, although it is common practice to leave a sum amounting to around 10% of the bill if you are satisfied with the service you have received.

Day 2 Monday: Trani-Castel Del Monte B L The Romanesque cathedral at Trani seems to rise from the sea. After a visit here and then lunch by Trani's pretty port we drive to Castel del Monte, a Medieval masterpieces on the eastern coast. We know the octagonal castle was built by Emperor Frederick II, one of the most powerful men in the Middle Ages, in the early 13th century. But nobody quite knows why. Isolated on a small hill, it lacks both the architecture and the location for a military fort, and it's way too imposing to be a pleasure palace. The most evocative hypothesis is that it was an intricate symbol, built around the magic intersection of astronomy, mathematics and the Christian faith. Overnight Giovinazzo. Day 3 Tuesday: Polignano a Mare & Martina Franca B L Polignano al Mare is one of Puglia's most evocative seaside towns. You stay in private rooms and apartments, part of a bed and breakfast complex which spreads throughout the main part of the small town. All have completely separate entrances and private bathrooms, and are furnished in a simple, elegant characteristic style. After settling in, and a seafood lunch overlooking the Adriatic sea, we travel to Martina Franca, a gracious town with gems of southern Italian Spanish influenced Baroque architecture beautifully presented in the labyrinthine streets. Overnight Polignano. Day 4 Wednesday: Locorotondo & Alberobello B L Today we have only a short drive to the area of the famous Trulli, conical stone structures originally built in dry stone which dot the landscape. At Alberobello we see a whole town of trulli, after which we go to a wine tasting and then lunch at a local “Masseria”. We visit the all-white town of Locorotondo in the afternoon. Overnight Polignano. Day 5 Thursday: Lecce B Lecce is an historic Baroque city in the heart of the Salento Region of Puglia and is often nicknamed The Florence of the South because of its abundant art and culture, apparent in its extraordinarily elaborate Spanish Baroque cathedral and ambitious public buildings. Overnight Polignano. Day 6 Friday: Ostuni B D In the morning we explore the town of Ostuni, known as the “white fortress”. The afternoon is free to enjoy the delights of Polignano. Farewell cocktails & dinner at a restaurant in Polignano. Overnight Polignano. Day 7 Saturday: Departure Bari B Transfer to Bari airport where the tour officially ends at around 10am.

Conjure thoughts of romantic canal scenes and serenading gondoliers, beautiful bridges, buildings and art, for Venice is the most unique city in the world and little has changed in its layout for the past seven hundred years.

Venice comprises a dense network of waterways with 117 islands and more than 400 bridges over its 150 canals. In Venice, instead of the main streets, you’ll find main canals, instead of cars, you’ll find Gondolas.

Stay for 2 nights in Venice, or allow three nights for time to see the outlying areas. Take a day trip to Murano, famous for its glass blowing, or see the brightly coloured buildings of Burano, widely known for its lace making. Tours depart

LAKE MAGGIORE

highlights Base yourself in the exclusive harbour resort towns of Portofino or Santa Margherita in Liguria to discover the rugged coastline and beautiful villages nestled beneath vine covered hills. A popular destination in this region is the Cinque Terre –five unique villages that “cling” to the edge of steep cliffs. Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore, once accessible only by sea, today can be reached by car along narrow roads or explored by walking or catching the train between the villages. Milan in the Lombardy region provides quick access to the dramatic alpine scenery with hilltop towns such as Bergamo and the stunning lakes of Northern Italy –Lakes Maggiore, Como and Garda. From Venice in the Veneto region it is a relatively short trip to the famous Dolomite Mountains or the delights of historic Verona and other towns such as Padua and Vicenza. Discover the region of Piedmont with its capital Turin, a food lovers paradise surrounded on three sides by Alps with picturesque landscape, lakes, castles and national parks.
