Time – May 24, 2023
Location – Apulia, Italy



Indulge your senses on this enchanting, seven-night stay in seaside Polignano a Mare, nestled in the heart of Italy’s Apulia region. Spend sunny days immersed in Roman history and heritage as you travel through gentle, fertile plains to fishing villages, family-run farms and medieval towns that leap from fairytales. In Alberobello, follow cobbled lanes to unique, conical trulli, and visit ancient Matera, famous for its sassi, incredible neighborhoods built from stone dwellings. Bask in breathtaking Locorotondo, where gleaming buildings coil around a hilltop setting, and wander through the narrow alleys of Ostuni’s Old Town. Experience the dazzling waterfronts and historic neighborhoods of Trani and Bari, and discover Lecce’s remarkable baroque stonework, including the opulent Basilica of Santa Croce. Savor Apulia’s simple cuisine, heirloom recipes crafted with a balanced use of land and sea. Plus, enjoy wine at a family-owned vineyard and tour an olive oil mill, followed by lunch. This small-group journey features an exclusive lecture series, a first-class hotel and an extensive meal plan with wine at dinner. No single supplement for solo travelers!
