2023 Tour Details View 2021 Tour Details » View 2022 Tour Details »

Although Italy is full of wondrous gems across “the boot," some of 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. This Undiscovered tour of Southern Italy invites you 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-million year-old caves of Castellana, you will experience Southern Italy’s hottest sights—and coolest. At 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.

Travelling that leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.

Showing people my country, enthralling them with captivating stories, sharing with them my passion and enthusiasm, and making them happy has become my main goal in life.
