When people ask us what our favourite region of Italy is, Puglia is always near the top of our list. A magnificent unspoiled landscape of spectacular coastlines, olive groves and vineyards stretching as far as the eye can see, discover the delights of this endlessly varied region on our latest virtual tour. Join Andrea to explore this rich world of unique architecture - the conical shaped trulli typical of the region are a photographer’s delight, while a host of imposing medieval castles and Baroque churches stud the region. Located in the heel of the boot that is the Italian peninsula, Puglia is where the waters of the Adridatic and Jonian sees meet at the heart of the Mediterranean: discover the beautiful geography, exotic legends and fascinating history that have shaped the region over the centuries. Puglia is paradise for foodies of all stripes too - the olive made here is Italy’s finest, and the abundant local wines and hearty cuisine never fail to disappoint either. We’ll be getting a virtual taste of them all on our tour, so be sure to join us for this feast of the senses. See you in Puglia!
Hi I’m Andrea! A native of Naples, I’ve lived in the Campania region of Italy all my life, and I have a deep love for its art, archeology, music, architecture, cuisine, natural beauty and - of course - its people. I have shared this world with many, many visitors over the years,showcasing the vast range of this wonderful place. When I was 14 years old I started working as an actor in theatres, and this plays a central role in how I communicate on my tours today - I always try to put something theatrical into everything I do :-)

I thoroughly enjoyed touring Puglia! I appreciated the overview of the region and the guidance about how to approach a trip to this beautiful place. Food information is always appreciated, and I jotted notes about food and wine. This was my first virtual tour, but I will consider another one in the future because it felt so good to see Italy even from my home far from Italy! Thanks to Andrea, I had an hour of delight and wonder. I look forward to seeing Puglia in person one day!
Fabulous Puglia tour!
I loved this tour through the ancient villages of Puglia. This off the beaten path area has so much to offer, and each village has its own special appeal. From the huts with the cone-shaped roofs in Alberobello to the cave dwellings in Matera, Andrea shared his knowledge and passion for the area with breathtaking photos, videos, maps, and tales. Now I can't wait to go to Puglia as soon as the pandemic allows. Meanwhile, “Volare, oh,oh… ” (the singer was from Puglia!) Above all, Andrea's energy and enthusiasm made this an extra special tour, and I highly recommend. Thanks Andrea!
