A wonderful town, awash with history and unique charm, Conversano is home to many gems including a castle, monastery, Romanesque church and megaltihic walls.

The town's main attraction is its imposing medieval castle, 'Castello di Conversano', which is thought to date as far back as the 6th century, but was rebuilt in the 11th. Inside the castle, you'll find an art gallery and tourist office, so you have the perfect oppurtunity to take it all in.

The Conversano Cathedral is just a few minutes walk from the castle and is a beautiful example of Romanesque-style architecture and not far again, is the Moastero San Benedetto, once one of the most powerful monasteries in Puglia.

On top of the fabulous historic buildings that this town is known for, there are plenty of places to sit and enjoy some food, a coffee or perhaps a glass of Pugliese wine.

From Conversano, guests can choose to take a bus to the beautfiul Polignano a Mare with its jewel-toned waters and limestone cliffs, which is just a 15 minute drive away. Or if you'd prefer to discover Puglia's capital, Bari, it can be reached in just over a half hour. It is a beautiful city that blends its history wonderfully with a certain youth a vibrance and it is well worth a visit.

    Enjoy a hearty breakfast before taking your coach transfer to the utterly fascinating town of Matera. Renowned for its cinematic landscape and ancient cave dwellings, also known as 'sassi', this UNESCO World Heritage site is one of the most awe-inspiring in Italy. For years and years these 'sassi' were used as housing the poor and the squallored conditions were renowned.

    Since then, however, the area has gained something of a revival with the sassi hosting artists and hipsters as well as some major film productions. What's more is that Matera was named as 2019's European Capital of Culture indicating how things have entirely flipped for the area.

    The third longest continuously inhabited human settlement in the world, when you visit the sassi, it seems that you have been transported back to the ancient Holy Land which is why, perhaps, the area has often been used to depict biblical scenes for TV and film, including 'Passion of the Christ'. This is a truly unique and remarkable place, just begging to be discovered. You will return to your hotel in the evening after a truly fascinating day.
