A vegan adventure in Puglia & Matera

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Matera caves were awesome. Lecce free day was beautiful. Vegetarian Restaurant in Matera.

What did you think of your group leader?

Macella was well organised and kept the group to time well. Recommended good restaurants.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

We went in late September & it was still very warm, especially on the 2 walks where we had picnics. I was glad I took an umbrella for a bit of shade. A long sleeved shirt was good as well. Evenings were cool, & windy so take a warm fleece. Take a torch for the rooms, some were dark. If you don't fancy a full set menu it is ok to dip out & just have pasta. I took a kettle & was glad of a cup of tea after a day of walking. There were hairdryers in every room. We took soya milk, but we did see almond & soya milk in the supermarkets.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

If you are vegan the ice cream is great & you will find loads of flavours & specialised vegan ice creams - otherwise go to a different ice cream bar. The breakfasts consisted mainly of cakes so a bit limited, but where there was Focaccia this was delicious. Over all vegans well catered for & one of my favourite trips.
