All about the Photography in Puglia & Matera.

TRIP OVERVIEW


Follow Lori & Lois in this dreamy photography experience!

Puglia coastline boasts an ancient strategic importance and a rich historical heritage dating back to the Greek & Roman civilisations and others seeking passage to the East across the Mediterranean Sea.

Among the highlights of this Photography Tour in Puglia are the famous Trulli houses of Alberobello (UNESCO heritage site). Trulli are limestone rock buildings curiously cone-shaped to insulate against extreme summer heat, harsh winters and allow for the collection of rainwater. You will also discover Trani & Otranto, Frederic II’s imperial Castel del Monte (UNESCO heritage site), the decorative baroque town of Lecce known affectionately as the Florence of the South, the spectacular Castellana Caves and two National Parks.  Before ending our beautiful journey we stop to explore the ‘Sassi’ cave dwellings of Matera.

Hospitality in Puglia is a Trulli memorable experience! Our accommodations are in the region’s traditional Masserie – agricultural estates where, during the 19th century, extended families lived and worked protected from pirates and brigands.

We are welcomed with open arms by the locals and fed an abundance of delicious Pugliese specialties favouring ingredients like beans, figs, melons, grapes, olives and a whole variety of particularly delicious cheeses – leaving us satisfied and sometimes a little over-full!

For sure you will never run out of inspiration and beautiful settings for your photos!
