Hidden Treasures of Southern Italy

Although Italy is full of wondrous gems across “the boot," some if its greatest treasures are hidden closer to its heel. In the Apulia region known for its centuries-old farmland, whitewashed towns, and miles of scenic coastline, the water is bluer, the produce is fresher, and the pace is delightfully slower. A tour of Southern Italy is an invite to kick back and savor la dolce vita as you travel from heel to ankle, vineyard to grove, and clifftop to cave. From the scenic bluffs of lemon-scented Sorrento to the stunning 90-millionyear-old caves of Castellana, you can experience Southern Italy’s hottest sights—and coolest. How about a special wine tasting at a local masseria? You’ll raise your glass to the many highlights of “the heel,” including its castles and conical houses, ancient ruins and fresh ricotta, and its eternal sunshine and sunny disposition.
