Your Holiday Itinerary

Day1Fly to Bari

On arrival to Bari airport, direct from Dublin, you will be met at the airport by a Topflight representative and transferred by coach to your hotel. Your transfer should take approximately 40 minutes and you will arrive at the 3 star plus Ibis Styles hotel in Trani where you will spend seven nights on a bed and breakfast basis.

Day2Welcome Meeting & Day at Your Leisure

After a fine breakfast in your hotel, you are invited to a welcome meeting with your Topflight representative who will introduce you to Puglia, talk you through your programme for the week and also recommend things to do and see during your time at leisure in Trani.

Day3Monte Sant’Angelo & San Giovanni Rotondo

Today, after breakfast, you will be transferred to Monte Sant’Angelo to visit the Shrine of Saint Michael which is also a UNESCO World Heritage site. You will have some time to explore this fascinating area which has been an important pilgrimage site since the early middle ages.

Afterwards, you will be brought to San Giovanni Rotondo, home to the Shrine of Padre Pio and the second most visited Catholic shrine in the world. Filled with fascinating religious buildings and monuments, today you will get to explore these intriguing surrounds in the company of a local guide. The saint’s tomb lies inside the Church of Our Lady of Grace, and it is here you will find a wealth of artifacts including the crucifix from which Padre Pio received the stigmata. After some exploration you will return to your coach and be transferred to your hotel.

Day4At your leisure

Today you can spend as you wish and it may the perfect opportunity to discover the area of Trani. Known as the ‘Pearl of Puglia’, the beautiful fishing town has a distinctly sophisticated feel and the marina provides a wonderful spot to walk, watching the boats and yachts bob in the harbour. The town’s cathedral however is the most spectacular of the sites here and well worth a visit.

Day5Matera

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 for the poor and the squallored conditions were renowned. Since then, however the area has gained something of a revival with the Sassi hosting artists, hippies as well as major film productions. What’s more is that Matera has been 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 you've 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 after a fascinating day.

Day6At Your Leisure

Spend another day at your leisure today, the perfect time to get some well-earned rest and relaxation in. But if you are still thirsty for activities, your Topflight representative can talk you through excursions and activities that are available or simply recommend a good local restaurant or bar.

Day7Alberobello, Lunch in a Masseria & Polignano a Mare

Today, you will visit the fairytale town of Alberobello. Puglia’s picture perfect town is famous for its conical-roofed dry stone huts, also known as trulli and in this UNESCO World Heritage site, you will find more than your fair share of sights at which to marvel. On your guided tour, you will get to explore its narrow pedestrianised streets, little shops selling local produce and quaint cafés, boasting the perfect espresso, before enjoying a traditional lunch at a local masseria.

Afterwards, you will brought to the beautiful town of Polignano a Mare, famous throughout the world for its mouth-watering gelato. But it’s not just that that will make you fall in love with this town, it’s the glorious surrounds too. Located on top of limestone cliffs, overlooking the ocean, this historic old town is a beautiful labyrinth of narrow roads and alleys, lined with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants for you to peruse. Afterwards, you will be transferred comfortably back to your hotel.

Day8Return Home

After breakfast, check out of your hotel. Take a leisurely stroll and In the afternoon, take your transfer back to the airport, where you will board your flight for your return flight to Dublin.
