Experience the language and the culture in South Italy while visiting the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Puglia & Matera 2019
JUNE 20th – 26th
SEPTEMBER 4th -11th
🚗 This trip is a great opportunity to experience the language on the road, around the area called Valle d’Itria where we will visit some of the most famous and important places in South Italy.
🏡 This trip is designed for who want to explore new places, discover traditions and share the experience with the group. We will share a private villa with Trulli and a swimming pool. We will share the accommodation and we might prepare together mornings breakfast, some lunches or dinners while of course, we will speak in Italian!
☀️ ☀️ June and September are the perfect months to be there. The sun is shining, the temperature is perfect for all the activities, walking through cities or lying on the beach, it is not too hot and, at this time of the year, it’s not too crowded.
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟One of the places we cannot miss is for sure Alberobello and its Trulli, one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Trulli are traditional dry stone hut buildings with a conical roof. We will find some great examples of Trulli also in other places such us Locorotondo, Martina Franca and Cisternino and in our Villa! Another place no to be missed is the old city centre of Matera, appointed European Cultural Capital for 2019, also UNESCO world heritage site. Matera isn’t technically located in Puglia but it’s just one hour away from Bari and it will be an experience you will never forget.
🌴 🌊 Along the beautiful coast, we will visit stunning little cities (white cities) characterized by low houses and narrow streets in limestone rocks. Ostuni, Polignano a Mare, Monopoli, and others. We will spend some time on the white sandy beaches of course!
🍴🍷We will taste local wine, olive oil, and food and we will learn how to cook traditional pasta “orecchiette” and “taralli” with lunch and aperitivo with an Italian family.
Everything is designed to interact with locals and experience the culture.
