Puglia "The Heel of the Boot"

Food - History - Charm


June 19th - 26th, 2023

     Puglia is the southern region of Italy on the "heel of the boot". It  is a delightful region  filled with fantastic food, history, & Italian charm. There are olive groves old enough for Jesus to have walked through; dinners made from the freshest local ingredients; and picture perfect beauty around every corner.

     The diversity in architecture juxtaposed with the colors of the water and landscape is breathtaking. The italians know that Puglia is a hidden gem and have been vacationing here for years. Prepare to experience the "true Italy" and leave with memories that will last a lifetime.  I am so excited to share with you one of my favorite places.


Our tours are designed for adults interested in art, food & fun. Not an artist? Not a problem! Alternative activities are provided. Every day is full of new adventures, great food & fun. This is not your typical tour where you are in a mob of people with headsets, following a brightly colored umbrella. We are “travelers” not “tourists” and you may hear Elida say, say, “Follow me, we are going to a friend’s for Lemoncello!”
