A relaxing walk with our guide will make you appreciate even more the beauty of the place. You will then move on to Martina Franca, where picturesque streets intersect with splendid squares, such as the Plebiscito. Finally, you will visit Ostuni, a wonderful hill town overlooking the Adriatic Sea, an explosion of white color in its alleys of the center, full of trendy places to have aperitifs or dinner.
