September 11 – 19

Unpack once in Italy’s southern region of Apulia, where views of the sparkling Adriatic Sea vie with picture-prefect towns. From your home in Polignano a Mare, discover the region’s essence on daily excursions. Apulia is filled with gems in the area known as the heel of Italy’s boot. Marvel at Alberobello’s trulli, conical-roofed limestone homes built without mortar; sassi, ancient cave dwellings in Matera; the white hill town of Ostuni; and the baroque city of Lecce. Contrast the seaside lifestyle of Bari and Trani with the inland at a winery and a family-owned olive mill. An exclusive lecture series complements your excursions.  No single supplement! $3,340 per person plus airfare.
