Italien / Apulien

Olivenhaine und azurblaue Meere

Apulien ist der Absatz des italienischen Stiefels und auf beiden Seiten vom Meer umgeben – im Osten von der Adria und im Südwesten vom Ionischen Meer. Typisch für Apulien sind endlose Olivenhaine, weite Getreidefelder, Weinberge und kulinarische Köstlichkeiten wie Fischgerichte und hausgemachte Pasta. Sie beginnen mit der Radeltour in Matera, UNESCO Weltkulturerbe mit seinen “Sassi” und europäische Kulturhauptstadt 2019, und enden diese in Lecce, prächtiger Barockstadt, die als “Florenz des Südens” gilt. Noch unbefleckt von den Spuren des Tourismus, ist Apulien in all seiner Schönheit Zeuge einer großartigen antiken Kultur.
  • Tourenverlauf

    1. Matera
    Individuelle Anreise. Jahrtausende lang gruben die Einwohner der Stadt ihre Behausungen in die steilen Berghänge hinein, tief in den weichen Kalktuff, einem charakteristischen honigfarbenen Stein. Diese Höhlensiedlungen, die „Sassi“, sind heute UNESCO-Weltkulturerbe.
     
    2. Matera – Alberobello (70 km)
    Heute radeln Sie zu den berühmten Trulli, die einst als Wohn- und Lagerhäuser dienten. Alberobello ist auf zwei Hügeln erbaut. Die Zone der Trulli auf dem westlichen Hügel ist in zwei Distrikte unterteilt: Monti und Aia Piccola.

    3. Alberobello – Ostuni (45 km)
    Durch schöne Landschaften geht es nach Ostuni, ein Juwel der Architektur. Wegen seiner weißen Mauern und Häuser wird Ostuni auch „Weiße Stadt“ genannt.

    4. Ostuni – Lecce – Gallipoli (70 km mit dem Zug + 50 km mit dem Rad)
    Kurzer Zugtransfer nach Lecce und einige Kilometer mit dem Rad in der Stadt und danach tauchen Sie in die ländliche Gegend des Salento ein. Am Ende erreichen Sie die ionische Küste und Gallipoli.

    5. Gallipoli – Santa Maria di Leuca (50 km)
    Die Stadt Santa Maria di Leuca erhielt ihren Namen von alten griechischen Seefahrern. Bei ihrer Ankunft war die Stadt von der Sonne hell erleuchtet, weshalb sie ihr den Namen „Leukos“ (=weiß) gaben.
     
    6. Santa Maria di Leuca – Otranto (50 km)
    Richtung Norden, der Adriaküste entlang nach Otranto. Dies ist der östlichste Punkt Italiens, und Sie können hier die imposante Kathedrale und das große aragonische Schloss besichtigen.
     
    7. Otranto – Lecce (55 km)
    Entlang den Alumini-Seen gelangen Sie nach Lecce. Dank seiner vielen Barockbauten trägt der Ort den Zweitnamen „Florenz des Südens“. Sie werden von den kunstvollen Ornamenten beeindruckt sein.
     
    8. Lecce
    Abreise nach dem Frühstück.

      We recently returned from a cycling tour of Apulia organised by Girolibero and I just wanted to thank Girolibero/you and say how well organised it was. Every detail was covered and the accommodation and bag transfer arrangements were superb. It is certainly a trip I will recommend to friends. We did notice a couple of minor errors on the directions and will email you separately about these as I don’t have the details to hand. They were very minor amendments.

      Thank you once again for putting together such a lovely trip.

      Nei primi giorni di viaggio si pedala sempre tra gli uliveti, immersi nella natura. Da Gallipoli a Otranto si viaggia lungo la costa, non consiglierei il viaggio nei mesi più frequentati, un po' per il caldo ma soprattutto per il traffico.
      Per chi non ha molto allenamento forse non è un viaggio difficoltà 2 ma qualcosa in più, anche perché il primo giorno (da Matera ad Alberobello) è il più lungo, si pedala più di 70 km e ciò può causare problemi nei giorni successivi. Non ci sono salite particolarmente lunghe o difficili, a parte nella tappa da Leuca ad Otranto che, se fatta col caldo può risultare molto impegnativa.

      Hi Katia,
      Your timing is perfect! We arrived home last night from traveling - most recently in the US.
      The Apulia trip was WONDERFUL!
      I have been organizing trips for friends and relatives for many years and this trip was loved by everybody- one of the best if not the best!
      Here are some of the factors that contributed to the success of the trip and are related to the excellent job you and Girolibero performed.
      1. The bicycles were in excellent condition and we had no major problems. The frames were properly sized and the unlimited seat and handle bar
      adjustments made them a perfect fit for everyone. I especially like the ability to turn the handle bars parallel to the frame so that we could fit them on the train.
      The bicycle is the MOST important factor for me and your bikes were the BEST I have ever experienced in my many years of renting bikes for groups overseas.
      2. The restaurants you selected for us were excellent. We were fed so much food! The service was excellent! The servers were pleasant.
      Having the dinners arranged ahead of time really made the logistics of planning while traveling so much better!
      3. The scenery was beautiful! Traveling along the ocean was beautiful. The selection of towns was well planned and the distances were
      very reasonable. Such beautiful towns!
      4. Your selection of hotels was excellent - especially sleeping in the Truli and the Sassi. What an experience!
      5. Several people commented on how quickly you returned emails and your attention to details.
      6. The trip was reasonably priced for the value offered.
      7. Everybody enjoyed not having a guide! We got “lost” a few times but it was exciting!

      Here are some factors that could be improved upon but were MINOR. Some you can control.
      1. The directions in the tour guide can be somewhat confusing and contradictory. I feel it is in the translation and syntax - the sentence structure.
      The yellow arrows were well-placed and followed along with the tour guide did help minimize the confusion.
      2. Girolibero might reconsider allowing more time scheduled for the first day bike pick-up and start. The half-hour schedule is unrealistic and
      sets an unrealistic start expectation for the large group of participants. It makes people anxious to start later than they anticipated and that anxiety can
      be avoided by having a realistic first day schedule.
      3. It DOES rain in Apulia in June - a lot! We had a few showers that were a deluge! We were fine but everyone kept quoting the guide, “Rain is minimal in Apulia in the Summer.”
      HaHa!

      Lots of people have been asking me where I will be traveling next year. Do you have any suggestions?
      I was thinking of a few days sightseeing in Rome before starting a cycle trip. I was looking at Majorca but it may be too hilly - unless I can find a somewhat flatter route.
      Maybe the seacoast of Spain? Latvia? Northern France - Alsace?
      Thank you and Girolibero for a great job and hope to be traveling with you in the future!

      Best Regards,
      Mike

      What a fabulous cycling holiday we had in Puglia - probably our most favourite cycling holiday so far. Many thanks to Girolibero for your excellent organisation; in particular to Maddalena for your patience with all our requests and to Marco from Lecce for your assistance with the replacement bike ( and welcome pizza). The hotels were perfect with friendly helpful staff; the plentiful breakfasts were a surprise when we were expecting barely a coffee and bread! The route was just what we like, farmland, great sea views and country roads. In particular we loved the family- run restaurants recommended in Marco’s guidebook and especially the home produced feast laid out for us under the walnut tree at Nuovo Muretto. The local people were always friendly and helpful; even the drivers were patient with our peloton of five. Southern Italy is a gem.
      Grazie from Ireland

      Amazing trip, made me so happy. Matera to Lecce.
      Because of an injury this trip could have been a sad disaster. Because of Marco (from Lecce) everything was worked out and I had one of the most fun and fabulous trips ever! I was so happy... you can see it in my face. I have been telling my friends about the trip and encouraging them to go.
      Thanks again to GiroLibero.
      Cheers!

      Hello Katia,
      The trip is now over, and we brought back great memories of a beautiful trip.
      I can't say more about Girolibero's organisation: it was outstanding from beginning to end.

      We travel a lot, and had many experiences all over the world, cycling or not: this trip was one of the best organised. The itinerary, the documents, the advice, the bikes were perfect.

      We didn't have a good weather (rain and a lot of wind when rain stopped), but nobody seemed upset, all the group was smiling every morning at breakfast.
      (Maybe an additional advice about bringing good rain suits should be useful: northern people think that sun shines all year in Italy.)

      The region is magnificent, we've seen so many beautiful towns and landscapes, we certainly will come back to see more of Apulia.
      And look at Girolibero's web site for another italian trip!

      Many thanks for your help!
      In attach, you'll see some photos of your bikes in the sun…
      Best regards,

      Thierry

      Hello Katia
      As we fly to Northern Europe for our second week of vacation I just wanted to send you a quick email to tell you we all had a fabulous time. The tour was amazing. The bike were comfortable. Marco was so very helpful. (Unfortunately we needed his assistance a few times with the e bikes). The hotels were all beautiful and the food was incredible.

      Although all the restaurants were very good La Vinaigrette and Ristorante Angli Angeli Ribelli were exceptional. Our dinner last evening at Le Zie was incredible so if you are ever asked for a suggestion from your customers I would highly recommend it.

      Finally thanks to you again for being such an amazingly organized person. It really was a pleasure dealing with you and we will do it again either next year of spring of 2017. I will probably have each person book their own next time!

I can also recommend the Oriente Hotel in Bari that we used for our extra night before travelling home, if any of your other customers are looking for a hotel in Bari.

      Dear Valentina Maccà,

      We have returned to a cold Scotland 2.5C after a very enjoyable cycling trip in Puglia. The organisation of the trip was excellent, we were warmly welcomed at each hotel and it was nice to find our luggage waiting for us in our rooms.

      The bikes were excellent and performed well throughout the trip. The route marker stickers were well positioned and a great aid especially on some of the more rural tracks. A special thank you to our “Guardian Angel” who was responsible for the luggage transfers and who also popped up from time to time to ensure all was well with us and also the bikes.

      Your handling of our booking was excellent, and we thoroughly enjoyed exploring Puglia by bike.

      Many thanks,

Percorso bellissimo, ottima scelta degli alberghi (l’unico che ci ha un po’ deluso in quanto necessita di un po’ di ristrutturazione è stato l’Approdo di Santa Maria di Leuca, tutti gli altri invece molto belli) e ottima organizzazione!

      I returned last evening from Italy having cycled the Apulia trip the week of March 28th. All hotel accommodations were excellent. The bicycles were excellent. They have a special tire; therefore, there was not even a need to put air in them for the 7 days. They were comfortable to ride, especially the seat which has gel in it. The distance is measured in kilometers; however, you are given a small odometer on the bike which measures the kilometers. Our trip was marked "leisure" in the legend which meant you needed to be able to cycle some rolling hills some of which were short distances. The people who transported our luggage were very pleasant and always on time. When we arrived at our hotel on a daily basis, our luggage was in our rooms. I have cycled the Danube and in Ireland previously with other companies, and this trip was my top choice. I coordinated our self guided tour with Antonio, who was very responsive to all details. I am already considering one of their other trips for next year. Regards, Kathleen G.
