Cycling in Apulia


The best way to get to know the land and the people in Apulia is to go on a cycling tour. Here, we would like to introduce you to the tour along Europe’s longest aqueduct, the "acquedotto pugliese". Well marked out trails run from the original trulli valley southwards to Santa Maria di Leuca with its fantastic sandy beaches.

Cycling under the Southern Italian sun in Apulia

The picturesque bike trail along the 19th century aqueduct is waiting to be discovered by ambitious cyclists.  

Well marked out trails take you 250 km southwards – from the charming landscape of the trulli valley in the north, past the nature reserve and fantastic sandy beaches around Porto Selvaggio and Nardò to Santa Maria di Leuca, once considered the 'end of the world'.  

Should you dread cycling all the way, then you can hop on one of the quaint local trains to get from one place to the next.

As most of the train stations are located in the center of the idyllic villages, for example Martina Franca or Nardò, you might even spare some time for a stroll through the village.    As the Apulian people are open-minded, friendly and kind, getting to chat with the locals during a ride on the train is not at all unusual – even if you have to use hands and feet to communicate, because your knowledge of the Italian language is not too good.  

Tip: From our country estate Masseria Torre Rosa in Ceglie Messapica/Cisternino you can start right on your cycling tour.
