3 days of exploration from the Adriatic Sea to the Alta Murgia National Park

3 days of trekking to discover Imperial Puglia, its rural and wild landscapes, its ancient maritime and Murgian culture.
The feeling will be that of being in a large open space in which to wander with your gaze towards infinite horizons characterized by the pungent smells of mint and wild thyme in the intense green of the wheat fields or rocky pastures between the evident yellow of the ferula, meeting orchids and lesser kestrels. In this land, emperors, farmers, shepherds, lumberjacks, together with the climate, have made the landscape and its culture unique.
