CHELSEA IS OUR FAVORITE HOTEL LOCATION. Our choice in Sloane Square, sophisticated, great location, expensive. Hotel costs in London, most expensive of any European city.

Puglia Portfolio: 3 tours Puglia My Way, Puglia Exclusive, Puglia Power

Puglia My Way*- Sept 15- 22, 2015
Puglia Power

*THERE ARE PROBABLY A DOZEN CITIES IN PUGLIA THAT COULD BE PART OF A TOUR OF PUGLIA.

A year ago I made 2 trips to Puglia. These trips do not qualify me as an expert. These research trips give me confidence in choosing the parts of Puglia that reflects my interests and visits “must see” Puglia.

Highlights:
Pogliano a Mare, Alberobello,
Matera & Cooking in Lecce
No other tour also takes you to
Metaponto in Basilicata with its Greek ruins


Puglia Power June 2015 & June 2016 see why
this trip is our favorite, a perfect 10 .

Once you have visited all the major tourist cities in Italy, it’s time to go further afield to Puglia located in the heel of the boot, a region some people call the next Tuscany. Puglia is unique in so many ways both historically and geographically. Located about 125 miles south of Naples, with the Adriatic a major attraction. Learn More Here.
