Bountiful mix of History, Culture & Wildlife

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Finding 2 baby kestrels in an alcove below our balcony. Watching ballerinas perform in the Roman amphitheatre. Eating delicious Pucca. Matera at night.

What did you think of your group leader?

It was a self guided holiday.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Stick to the advice given in your packs, especially to wear walking trousers with good walking shoes or boots. Watch out for snakes, we saw 3 on the Alberobello - Locorontondo walk. Take an umbrella. Use the town maps provided by the accommodation providers, they are very good. It's fine to drink the tap water and make sure you have at least 1.5 litres per person on every walk.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Use the maps and walk directions together as the lefts and rights were occasionally muddled.
