Discover the best of Puglia this summer
Italy is a fascinating country with so much to offer: beautiful scenery, art, history, food, wine and culture.
It’s a shame not to see as much as you can while you’re there, but many people don’t enjoy whistle-stop tours, with all the packing and unpacking that they bring. With this in mind, the new Explorer Holidays provided by specialist tour operator, Inghams Italy, are based in one or two hand-picked hotels for their duration and give you the chance to get to know a region of Italy in depth, whilst still leaving you time to relax and unwind. They include 7 night accommodation on a half board basis (with flights and transfers), as well as all excursions, entrance fees and local guides to make sure you get the most out of your visit, and throughout you have the assistance of an expert Inghams Explorer Guide. Each holiday is limited to a select group of just 25 participants, meaning you have more personal attention and the whole experience is more comfortable.
Treasures of Tuscany – discover the very best of the region and explore the timeless cities of Florence and Siena. See the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa and enjoy a day out in the beautiful Chianti countryside, followed by a wine tasting in the famous vineyards.
The Best of Puglia gives you the chance to relax beside the sandy shores of the Adriatic and take a few trips to dip into the culture of this unspoilt region of Italy. Most famous for its trulli, unusual conical roofed houses, Puglia also has magnificent baroque architecture as well as a beautiful coastline with whitewashed port towns. The tour also includes a wine tasting and a visit to the fascinating prehistoric cave dwellings in Matera.
For any fans of the Inspector Montalbano series on BBC 4, the wonderful destinations included in the Wonders of Eastern Sicily will seem familiar.

Relax in beautiful Taormina and enjoy the Sicilian wine and specialities.
