“Have you ever wondered why the soil in Puglia looks so redish? Why do you often find red striped in the stones used to build Puglia's traditional stone buildings? The Grotte di Castellana are beautiful natural caves, among the most important in Italy. You will be taken on a trail inside the caves, no need for hiking experience just non-slippery shoes are recommended. Ideal for children and anyone interested in knowing more about the geology and landscape of the area They can be visited on rainy days, however there will be water inside two days after the rainfalls as water takes time to penetrate down the earth.”

“L'Oasi, di 380 ettari, è un ambiente umido tra i più importanti dell'Italia meridionale, ultimo superstite della vasta zona paludosa e boscosa che si estendeva da Brindisi ad Otranto. All’interno dell’area protetta ci sono zone boschive caratterizzate dalla presenza di pini, lecci e querce. Il cuore della riserva è però costituito dalle paludi di acqua dolce, qui la vegetazione è costituita prevalentemente da canneti a cannuccia di palude. Vi sono inoltre numerose specie di orchidee spontanee che durante i mesi primaverili fioriscono donando ulteriori colori a quest’area. Gli animali che popolano la riserva sono numerosi, in primavera è possibile osservare il volo delle coloratissimefarfalle”

“In the spur of Italy, Gargano is replete with beautiful fishing villages, dark and ancient forests inland, fine sandy beaches but also rugged cliffs, secret caves and picturesque coves. A perfect hub for eco-tourism and relax. The most popular and fashionable town in Gargano is the medieval village of Vieste, with its narrow streets and white houses, dominated by a stunning 13th century castle. Among the most beautiful beaches we recommend Mattinata beach, especially the coastal area of Baia delle Zagare, with its famous stacks a few metres from the shore. If you like fresh fish you have to try a dinner at trabucco, a traditional wooden fishing platform on the coast where you can watch the fishing process, help out if you want, and dine leaving you with a very memorable experience. ”
