Puglia Autumn Road Trip

Fall in Love with Puglia Without the Crowds!

Quick Details

Bright autumn colours and scenic views, without the crowds

Puglia is one of the most exciting destinations to go for a road trip in autumn. The sunny climate makes it a great choice when the rest of Europe is already too cold. From small towns to coastal spots, this itinerary includes some of the best ways to enjoy fall in our region.

Starting in Bari, this itinerary features Matera, the Itria Valley and Salento.

What you will see

You will have the pleasure to visit the beautiful tiny town of Alberobello with its traditional Trulli huts, the UNESCO city of Matera, another gem of sustainable architecture with its “Sassi”, literally houses in the caves. You will proceed to the pottery town of Grottaglie where you will learn the art of crafting ceramics.

A stop on the rocky coastline with the marvellous natural pools and beaches of the Adriatic sea will be followed by a visit of the most eastern city of Italy, Otranto. Another stop in the “città bella/beautiful city of Gallipoli” famous for its fishing and trading history since Roman times will be followed by the drive to Ostuni, the “città bianca/white city” with its marvellous scenery on Puglia landscape made of olive trees, vineyards and the blue of the Adriatic sea.

This itinerary will amaze you because it captures all the charm and essence of Puglia.
