Cisternino in the Valle d'Itria
Increasingly more tourists are choosing to visit the Valle d'Itria and Cisternino for a holiday where they can enjoy the undisturbed and fascinating area, long known to the Italians who sojourn here from the cities of the north during the spring and summer.
With plenty of options: to explore the countryside by car, cycle or foot, stroll through the historical town centre or just laze by the pool in the warm sunshine, the possibilities are endless.
Many visitors opt to stay in a converted trulli holiday home or luxurious surroundings of a Masseria Hotel in the heart of the olive groves and pine woods. Beach lovers won't be disappointed either with miles of sandy coves and rocky outcrops lapped by the clear blue Adriatic sea, many of which are virtually empty all the year.
Another attraction loved by holiday makers and locals alike are the various festivals held throughout the year celebrating religious or gastronomic themes, all involving parades and of course lots of eating and drinking.
