PUGLIA FOOD IMMERSION
SEMPTEMBER 30TH – OCTOBER 04TH 2018
3 days and 4 nights exploring Puglia up and down: we will discover the heart of the region through its food and the artisans who produce it, sipping olive oil, feeling the texture of a real mozzarella “fior di latte”, biting a fragrant focaccia, drinking amazing white wine from Locorotondo, tasting local typical rural cuisine, strolling up and down in the white old towns and in the millenary olive trees fields.
