NAPLES is a vibrant city filled with volcanic soils, inspiring art, beautiful views, and countless generations of culinary know-how. During your first days in and around Naples, you’ll taste some of Italy’s best pizza, pasta, and espresso, visit incredible museums, discover the subterranean world of Naples’ Underground City, and explore the archaeological excavations of POMPEI. Next, you’ll venture through Campania to discover the wine area of TAURASI, home to Aglianico—the most celebrated red grape of the region—and the white grapes of Greco, grown around the village of Tufo, and Fiano, hailing from the mountain district of Lapio. Enjoy immersive experiences and meals at family-owned wineries, as well as two nights in a beautiful wine resort, before heading to the Basilicata region for more acclaimed wine and exploration.


After tasting some of Italy’s most famous white wines, it’s time to delve into the red Aglianico wines of the VULTURE, considered one of the rising star wine areas of southern Italy. In between stops for local wine and culinary delights, you’ll pay a visit to VENOSA to see its historic sites and catacombs before continuing on to MATERA, where you’ll spend two nights in a luxury hotel. Matera is one of the most unusual and memorable tourist destinations in Italy, famous for its complex cave-dwelling districts, the Sassi di Matera. Known as la città sotterranea (“the underground city”), the Sassi and the park of the Rupestrian Churches were named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993 for being “the most outstanding, intact example of a troglodyte settlement in the Mediterranean region, perfectly adapted to its terrain and ecosystem.”



For the latter part of this trip, the focus will be on the Puglia region of Italy, where you’ll discover the incredible wines of the GIOIA DEL COLLE wine corner before visiting ALTAMURA. This city is famed for its gastronomic excellence, such as DOP bread and IGP lentil, as well as for its archaeological sites and monuments. After two delightful nights in Puglia, you’ll return to Matera for a night before paying a visit to another UNESCO World Heritage site, ALBEROBELLO, a small town noted for its unique trello buildings and narrow pedestrian-friendly streets. As you make your way to the Adriatic coast, the insightful experiences continue with a visit to an old olive press, followed by dinner in OSTUNI. Surrounded by defensive walls, this stunning, medieval hilltop city offers exceptional vistas from all angles, particularly from the 15th century Gothic cathedral that sits proudly at the highest part of town. Finally, you’ll spend time in POLIGNANO A MARE, a shining gem situated high on the cliffs of the Valle d’Itria coast, before ending your trip in BARI.

Optional Extension: Manduria

Extend your visit by venturing into the MANDURIA DOC wine region, homeland of the iconic Primitivo grape. Explore the town of Manduria, noted for its Imperiali and Giannuzzi palaces and monuments, as well as its wine museum, with stops at premier estates for luscious examples of Primitivo di Manduria wines. Afterwards, you’ll make your way back to Bari for your departure.
