On request to be combined with a visit of Cisternino.
Martina Franca is one of the most important cities of the Itria Valley (the area is known for its stone houses with conical roofs, called trulli). You will visit the city center of this lively city with its typical baroque palaces and churches, the sumptuous Ducal Palace with its rooms adorned with frescoes and its folk traditions museum. We will discover the legend of St. Martin’s cloak and the beggar.
You will learn more about the processing techniques. We recommend a tasting of the local delicacies: Capocollo di Martina (a DOP Apulian salami similar to a smoked ham) and some local salami.
At the end of the tour you could also visit Cisternino: a picturesque hamlet awarded with the Orange Flag (a recognition for the quality of tourism and the environment in small inland towns) by the Italian Touring Club. Cisternino is worth a visit. You could stroll through the narrow streets and admire its whitewashed houses, the clock tower and the parish church with one of the most prestigious Apulian renaissance sculpture: the Madonna of the Goldfinch, 1517.
