Apulia around Lecce 6-day Self-guided Cycling Tour Level 2
Apulia is a region in south-eastern Italy that includes the heel part of Italy’s boot, suspended between the Ionian and Adriatic Sea. The region is characterised by endless olive groves, long fields of grain and vineyards. You start and end the tour in Lecce, also known as “Florence of the South” because of its magnificent baroque architecture. This bike tour will lead you into a region of scenic beauty, which is, by today’s standards, still unspoiled by the unattractive aspects of tourism and still retains testimony of its great and ancient culture.
If you would like to hire a bike (75 EUR) or e-bike (190 EUR ) or helmet (15 EUR), please contact our office when booking [email protected] com
