Piccolina Adventures and Salento Bici Tours. Just returned from a fabulous 9 day bicycle tour of Puglia with our guides Carlo and Giulia from Salento Bici Tour. We cycled on rock wall lined country roads, dirt roads, Roman roads, cobblestones, and streets from Locorotondo to Santa Catarina to S. M. de Leuca, and ending in Lecce. They introduced us to the regional wine, olive oil, pastas as we visited museums, old underground olive presses, farms called "masserie", and the very famous and ancient "trulli" houses. It was a fabulous experience biking along the Adriatic and Ionian Seas as well as the hills of Puglia. These are sketches from my sketchbook!
