DAY 4:  MATERA 

After breakfast your driver guide will meet you and you’ll head to Bari, a port city on the Adriatic sea and the  capital of the region of Puglia.. On the way, as you pass through the region of Basilicata we’ll take a stop in  Matera for a guided visit of the town. It’s said that the town may be the longest continuously inhabited  human settlement in the world.   Stand in the right spot at a viewpoint overlooking Matera’s huddled sassi, and it’s not difficult to imagine you’ve  been teleported back to the Holy Land circa 100 BC. At once epic and cinematic, the ‘Città Sotterranea’, as it’s  known, perches on the upper reaches of the steep-sided Gravina gorge and its timeless urban landscape has often  been used to evoke biblical scenes in films and TV. ( Lonely Planet).   Overnight in Martina Franca (B)

DAY 5:  ALBEROBELLO, OSTUNI and LECCE

In the morning after breakfast, you’ll meet your driver and drive to Lecce with a stop in Alberobello. a  UNESCO World Heritage Site. A lovely spread of pinnacles announces Alberobello's characteristic historic  centre,. The old town centre is entirely composed of ?trulli?. These are traditional homes whitened with  quicklime and capped by conical bare-stone roofs. Crosses, pierced hearts, and zodiac signs decorate the  roofs, maintaining the air of mystery that surrounds the trulli. We’ll also stop in Ostuni, the “White City” ?par  excellence?, and the only one in Val d’Itria fronting the sea, with its characteristic historic center, once painted  entirely white.  Overnight in Lecce (B)

DAY 6:  LECCE

Today, you’ll enjoy a half day guided visit of Lecce. Called “?the Florence of the South?”, Lecce welcomes  visitors with its magnificent baroque architecture, which blazes on the portals of its palaces and on the  facades of the many churches that line the streets inside the city's three ancient gates: Porta Rudiae, Porta  San Biagio and Porta Napoli. Everywhere you turn, the city will dazzle your eyes with baroque exuberance.  Lecce is also thought of as the capital of southern Italian cooking and the town is filled with wonderful  restaurants to pick from.   Overnight in Lecce
