What we will do
  • We will leave the port of Bari and head south towards Murge, the karst square-shaped plateau in central Puglia.
  • Our destination is the town of Locorotondo, a whitewashed town in a distinctive circular shape which gave it its name.
  • When we reach our destination, we will be free to explore the historic centre, a unique monument oozing charm and character with its whitewashed cottages, cobbled streets, elegant portals and balconies brimming with flowers.
  • In  the historic centre, there are  the so-called "cummerse": small whitewashed houses in an even geometric shape with a pitched roof, which have been renovated and opened up to tourists for accommodation in the area.
  • As well as admiring the architecture and picturesque panoramic views on our walk, we can also stop and enjoy a taste of the excellent DOC white wine produced locally in the heart of Itria Valley where Locorotondo lies.
