If Italy is the ‘boot’, then Puglia is the ‘heel’. It is also sometime called ‘the land between two seas’, because it lies right between the Adriatic and Ionian, also ‘the Florence of the South’ due to the stunning Baroque architecture that adorns the facades of Lecce and other towns and finally ‘the mezzogiorno’, an apt allusion for its slow pace of life and sleepy ambience of the noonday sun.
Join the Travelling Chef on this one of a kind travel experience to discover Puglia! We’ll tour amazing cities, tasting the region’s finest cheeses, wines and olive oils. We will explore local villages, dine in wonderful restaurants, cook a traditional Puglian meal with a professional chef, shop on cobblestone streets among masters of cartapesta (papier-mâché) renowned in the region.
We have customized this adventure to Southern Italy with a brilliant balance of free time and guided activities with an intimate group of just 6–12 guests. We encourage the single traveler and do not charge a single supplement fee. Be sure to bring an extra suitcase, a generous appetite and a spirit for adventure!
