Day 1 Bari
Puglia's prosperous seaside capital, the tangled streets of Bari's charming old town reveal Romanesque churches, a riotous market and elegant medieval piazzas.
Day 2 Matera
One of the oldest cities in existence, the extraordinary sight of Matera's sassi - stone houses formed from natural grottoes - give a haunting insight into ancient life.
Day 3 Alberobello
The quaint town of Alberobello is home to the beehive-shaped trulli: small, dry-stone houses built from local limestone which are unique to this area of Puglia.
Days 4 & 5 Lecce
Baroque ornamentation is elevated to dizzying heights in Leece. Roman ruins and magnificent allegories dancing across ornate facades present visitors with a feast for the senses.
Days 6 & 7 Polignano/Trani
Built on rocky cliffs which rise dramatically from the blue waters of the Adriatic, the small town of Polignano boasts a wealth of sights thanks to its ancient settlement and history of invasion. With a stunning seaside cathedral, medieval streets and its own, sweet wine, Trani is truly like stepping back into a 1950s movie set.
Days 8 & 9 Naples
With its heritage-listed historical centre and fascinating Archeological Museum, Naples's extraordinary history is obvious - plus it's home to some of the best pizza Italy has to offer.
