What and where is the Puglia cycling holiday?

The region of Puglia is in what Italians call the "heel of Italy", which would be the most southwestern part of the boot-shaped peninsula. Right there, in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, a self-guided cycling holiday awaits tourists hungry for adventure. 


Puglia is a unique piece of land between the Adriatic and Ionian seas. It was first settled by the Greeks.  In fact, you might find that in some regions the locals still speak ancient 'Grika'. Then the region was conquered by the Roman and later by the Normans. 

Each one of these conquerors left pieces of history scattered all over the plains and along the coast where one can admire the historical crumbling watchtowers. This is truly a place that is better explored by bike. 

The Self-Guided Tour

It is usually hotels within the region that would offer the service of a self-guided cycling tour.  It is a unique opportunity to visit this great landmark at your own pace and with all the time needed. The place is sun-drenched so you can safely travel on a bike with very little risk of rain. 

The tour is along the coast as you visit the towns of Otranto, Ostuni, Gallipoli, and Lecce. You are interrupted by the scenery of the two seas on both ends of Puglia.  In summary, this is what tourists see when they do the Puglia cycling holiday

  • Beautiful turquoise seas and sandy beaches of the Adriatic and Ionian seas. 
  • Visit to Santa María di Leuca, a beautiful harbor town. 
  • Stops to taste local delicacies including seafood and wine, a culinary Italian experience.
