PUGLIA - ITALY
Puglia is one of Italy's most famous regions. From ancient towns with a tangible past to extravagant churches dreamt up by Europe's finest architects, you can follow the footprints of an endless procession of conquerors and cultures. Take in the sea of olives and vineyards along with the olive-green ocean of the Meditteranean. The region's food is the equal of any in Italy and will leave you craving more.
Boasting warm and mild weather all year round, Puglia really is a dreamy destination. The height of summer can get too hot for some in the midday sun. So if you prefer slightly cooler temperatures, perhaps book spring or autumn dates for a more comfortable ride.
Dusty, hilly, and rolling. The roads run beautifully through southern Italy with challenging climbs and fun descents to tackle. Hot summer days really do kick up the dust. Don't forget your glasses and a face covering if you are normally at the back of the peloton!
Warm and welcoming. Italian hospitality is famous across the globe. Be prepared to be blown away by hearty food and rich flavours, incredible wines, and the all-important family feeling that runs throughout the region. Puglia will leave an imprint on you after your visit.
