Arrive at Bari or Brindisi airport, to be met by a private limousine to take you to your accommodation. Your personal concierge will greet you on arrival; you then have time to freshen up before enjoying a light lunch on your terrace with a selection of delicious local products, prepared antipasti and excellent wine.
After lunch we suggest that you do as the locals do and take it easy, meeting your concierge again at 5.30pm for a accompanied trip to Polignano, with its dramatic cliff top setting. Explore the town, with or without a guide and have an optional wine tasting or aperitivo before returning to Monopoli for dinner.
Your concierge will have booked a table for you in a typical local restaurant, where you can sample the freshest fish and seafood and/or enjoy the traditional local vegetable based dishes, before being met by your driver to take you back to your villa or hotel.
You can enjoy a superb breakfast at your villa/hotel before setting off on an accompanied trip to see Ostuni, ’the white city’. There you will have plenty of time to explore and visit the excellent pottery and craft shops and boutiques. For lunch we will take you to Alberobello, a renowned World Heritage Unesco site, to dine at a well-known restaurant which serves typical local cuisine, which as Alberbello is inland is based on vegetables, cheeses and meat, rather than fish.
After such a meal and a quiet stroll to let it digest well, your driver will return you to your accommodation, where there will be time to relax before a light dinner.
Again your housekeeper will serve you a delightful breakfast and afterwards you can enjoy an accompanied tour of Monopoli, this time with a focus on culture, local products, or shopping (or all three!) as you desire. You can enjoy a light lunch in a local restaurant and then your driver will take you back to the villa for a siesta and lazy afternoon. At 7pm your driver will take you to Conversano, with its romantic centro storico dominated by its old castle, which is floodlit at night. After exploring the town we will treat you to a fabulous dinner in famous Restaurant Pasha, where your taste buds can revel in a specially prepared tasting menu – each dish more exquisite than the last and accompanied by a glass of wine specifically chosen as its complement.
The private limousine will take you to the airport.
