An eco-friendly e-bike tour is an excellent way to explore the beautiful region of Puglia. This flat and always-sunny land offers visitors a true immersion in the region's glorious past and its culinary traditions.
On this full day, private tour using power-assisted bikes, an expert English-speaking guide will lead you on a peaceful but varied route starting in Savalletri di Fasano. This small town is known for its country houses called masserie. Here you will visit the archaeological sites of Egnazia and see the ancient pilgrim's route that, during the Crusades, connected the port of Brindisi to Rome.
You will then proceed along the Adriatic coast where the blue sea and the green countryside with its many olive groves will be the backdrop for the day's ride. The picturesque fishing village of Monopoli is your destination. A guided walking tour of the town includes the beautiful, 12th century cathedral of SS. Maria di Madia and the Carlo V Castle, one of the most remarkable signs of Spanish colonization in this area.
After visiting the castle, you will head to a masseria for a typical light lunch, along with a wine and olive oil tasting. Among other delicacies you'll sample Puglia's famous taralli, crunchy snacks flavored with black pepper or fennel seeds, as well as various appetizers such as cold cuts, cheese and olives. You will return to Savelletri di Fasano after lunch, having covered about 22 miles on this power-assisted bike tour.
