5 - Caves and Trulli Tour (Grotte di Castellana & Alberobello)
Visit the Castellana Caves, a journey to the center of the earth among multicoloured stone embroideries immersed in these magnificent caves. The White Cave, unique in the world, awaits the visitor at the end of the walk.
The Castellana Caves are a complex of underground cavities of karstic origin among the most beautiful in Italy.
They encompass a length of about 3300 meters and to a maximum depth of 122 meters with a constant temperature throughout the year of about 16 °. The route runs for three kilometers, an unmissable guided excursion amongst incredible scenery, where underground canyons, caverns with fantastic names, fossils, stalactites and stalagmites stimulate the imagination of young and old.
Then, continue to Alberobello situated in the heart of Murgia dei Trulli, a World Heritage Site with its 1500 trulli.
Visit to the Rione Monti, the oldest parts of the city, together with the Aia Piccola district, where Casa Pezzolla stands out, a complex of 15 communicating trulli and now used as the Museo del Territorio, and the Trullo Sovrano, which hosts theatre and concerts. Visit the amazing Church of Sant'Antonio, the only church in the world in the firm of a Trullo.
The experience will end with a visit to a Trullo dating from 1700 where we taste typical products: jams and marmalade using fresh fruit locally grown, natural, genuine and healthy. We taste jams with cherries, prickly pears and fioroni (typical apulian fruit) on a slice of bread; tasting of 3 Rosoli, the liqueurs of the past born in the Convents of the territory, a liqueur with a low alcohol content, distilled and alcoholized with the flowers and fruits of our countryside, produced by traditional methods taken from ancient recipes.
