Begin your self-guided cycling adventure in Puglia’s vibrant capital, Bari. Wander through Bari Vecchia, soaking in the rich history and culinary delights that line its storied streets. From Bari, embark on a scenic train ride to Putignano, where your cycling journey truly commences. Pedal through the Itria Valley, visiting Alberobello’s world-famous Trulli, the picturesque streets of Locorotondo and Martina Franca, ending your day in the quaint town of Noci.

Visit Matera, where the Sassi’s ancient cave dwellings offer a glimpse into a bygone era. Marvel at this city’s unique architectural landscape, etched into the ravines and gullies of the region. The next day’s ride to Altamura introduces you to the city’s famous DOP bread and the majestic Cathedral built by Frederick II. Don’t miss the Pulo di Altamura, an impressive sinkhole in the National Park.

Your adventure continues through the Alta Murgia National Park, where Gravina’s underground city and Poggiorsini’s historic castle await.

As you cycle towards Bari’s northern coast, explore the Necropolis of San Magno and the iconic Castel del Monte, another UNESCO World Heritage site. The towns of Ruvo di Puglia and Trani, with their moniker “The Pearl of the Adriatic,” offer a blend of historic intrigue and coastal splendour.

The final leg of your journey takes you through the picturesque coastal towns of Bisceglie, Molfetta, and Giovinazzo. Immerse yourself in their laid-back lifestyle, historic centres, and charming ports. Conclude your tour with a return to Trani and a reflective journey back to Bari, filled with memories of Puglia’s heart and soul.
