Castel del Monte

Stones of Puglia: caves, cathedrals by the sea...

Puglia’s history winds from prehistoric caverns to archeological sites of Greek and Roman cities and temples, from houses built in caves to stone trulli to medieval castles and fortresses. Today's Puglia is vibrantly alive with unique local wines and cuisine, thermal spas, championship golf courses and its own music. Farms and wine cellars, Puglia is also a gourmets' delight!

Stones of Puglia: caves, cathedrals by the sea...

Bari is a good starting point for this itinerary, well connected as it is to Rome and Naples.

The tour will also include the most impressive examples of religious and civil architecture of the middle ages such as Bitonto cathedral; Ruvo di Puglia cathedral; Castel del Monte; Trani with its Cathedral on the sea.

All built between the 11th and 13th centuries, mainly in local stone, with complex and exquisite decorations which contrast the sobriety of the bare walls, they are generally oriented, and often connected, with other important monuments of a religious nature. 

The tour will continue to Matera and its incredible Sassi, houses dug into the rock on the side of a canyon, one of the first human settlements in Italy that dates back to the Paleolythic. Because of the ancient and primitive scenery in and around the Sassi, it has been used by filmmakers as the setting for ancient Jerusalem. The following famous biblical period motion pictures were filmed in Matera: among them, Mel Gibson’s Passion of Christ

The Sassi and the Park of the Rupestrian Churches of Matera are part of the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1993

Martina Franca, a town settled 431 metres above sea level, lying over one of the last southern hills in the south-east of the Murgia area, will also be on our way. It overlooks the charming Valle d’Itria, a beautiful region with trees and white houses called “trulli”.

Not to be forgotten, the wonderful Castellana Caves deserve an unforgettable visit, the most important speleological environment in Italy and Europe: their wide range of crystal concretions, their size and amazing variety of natural galleries are responsible for the role played by the caves of Puglia. They are the result of the eroding action of an ancient underground river which for centuries dug and shaped the calcareous rocks composing the murgia in the Bari area.

Nearby Alberobello, founded in the 15th century on land that was originally an oak forest. A typical feature of Alberobello are the trulli, white dry-stone houses with conical roofs made of lapidary stones. Inside, the trulli have a square central room communicating with the other rooms of the house via arches. 
In 1996 the city of Alberobello, the heart of the Murgia dei Trulli, was declared a Heritage of Humanity site by UNESCO.

Our last destination in this tour will be Lecce, the Baroque masterpiece of southern Italy. Lecce's history goes back a long way - you can still see ruins of a Roman theatre and amphitheatre - but the period which led to town's current fame was the 17th century. A period of prosperity led to grand developments and the wholesale construction of palaces and churches. These buildings adapted the fashionable Baroque style to the soft local stone, with decorations and cherubs extravagantly covering facades and doorways. This local style is known as barocco Leccese ('Lecce Baroque').

Overnight stays wil be arranged in traditional masseria, once the traditional farm and now resorts withe large parks and swimming pools.

Basilicata and Matera, back to our roots

Matera is a Unesco World Heritage property since 1983, located in the southern Italian Region of Basilicata , embedded between Calabria and Apulia. It is the most outstanding, intact example of a troglodyte settlement in the Mediterranean region, perfectly adapted to its terrain and ecosystem. The first inhabited zone dates from the Palaeolithic, while later settlements illustrate a number of significant stages in human history.

Basilicata and Matera, back to our roots

Ancient habitations dug into the tuff rock of a chalky plateau open up around a hollow, the Gravina di Matera, traversed by a torrent that flows in this spectacular and unique city., where roofs become the foundations for new habitations on the levels overhead.

Unknown to the greatest majority of international travellers, the area deserves a visit together with some additional points of interest, such as Metaponto, one among the most important sites of Magna Grecia civilization in Italy.  Visitors can enjoy the "Tavole Palatine", the remainings from a Greek temple dedicated to Goddess Hera which dates back to the 6th century before Christ.  
Additional points of interest, the Archaeological National Museum in Metaponto  allows visitors to understand the historical and artistic development of this area.  

There is a wide range of archaeological findings dating back to the time when Metaponto was founded, in the Bronze Age, until the coming of Romans.
A few miles away is Policoro, with its archaeological museum where findings of the Heraclea, also Heracleia or Herakleia (Ancient Greek: Ἡράκλεια), an ancient city of Magna Graecia are exhibited to show the stages of human presence in the area since the Neolithic.

 

 

Limpid and pure, roaring and swift, calm and warm: this is the sea that touches Basilicata. Streams and brooks flow down from the mountains, lakes are surrounded by lush vegetation, and the water basks in its thousands of blue. 
For those who love shopping and nightlife, Maratea is perfect and rich in options for a return to modernity!

Mix Arts and QoL with Travel around Italy! A new way to travel to Italy matching destinations with a strong cultural appeal with nearby attractions, offering the best for your own quality of life 1 - Turin and the Langhe wine region

Modern art and QoL (1)

An unexpected glance at one of the most vibrant cities in Italy to understand an often neglected treasure in Italy: modern Art.

 

Turin will be the first stop of our itinerary, with its GAM (Gallery of Modern Art).The masterpieces of the major 19th century Italian artists, such as Fontanesi, Fattori, Pellizza da Volpedo and Medardo Rosso, as well as of the 20thcentury, among whom Morandi, Casorati, Martini and De Pisis, are restored to their ability of speaking in the present, and to exhibit all their splendour in close comparison with the art of the historical, international forerunners, from Max Ernst, Paul Klee and Picabia.

We will then proceed to a real paradise for wine amateurs, the Langhe! Get lost among some of the the most refined wines in the world! Arneis, Barbera, Dolcetto, Freisa,Nebbiolo, Barbaresco, Brachetto, Bonarda, Grignolino, Barolo….

Alba truffles in autumn are also an unforgettable experience.

The Langhe countryside is hilly area, whose features remain unchanged as they were in the first half of the 20th century, prominently in the writings of Beppe Fenoglio and Cesare Pavese.

Verona tells its story: love at first sight!

Verona is only second to Roma for the quality and the preservation of its Roman antiquities.

Verona tells its story: love at first sight!

Verona is a work of art in itself: a fascinating cross-roads of historical periods and cultures (both classical and Germanic), a blend of both Nordic and "Mediterranean" influences. 

A walk through its narrow streets allows you to get in touch with its varied and fascinating past: traces of its splendid Roman origins, its prevailing medieval structure dating back to the time of knights and castles, its magnificent Renaissance palaces as well as the impressive fortifications which protect it. 

Verona is well worth a visit!

Picasso, Kandinskij, Braque, Mondrian, Klee and Matisse are also visible.The first room of the Museum shows the symbol painting of the museum itself: The Fourth Estate by Pellizza Da Volpedo.

The tour continues with the great lakes: Lago di Como and Villa Balbianello, one of the most beautiful and romantic Villas on Lake Como. this wonderful villa is located on an enchanting promontory in the centre of Lake Como and was constructed by Cardinal Durini in the 18th century.

The next destination is Lago Lugano with Villa Fogazzaro Roi.
