Baroque Extravagance and Norman Splendour in Puglia

Puglia

 

2nd to 8th October 2014

6 nights

Lecturer: Charles FitzRoy

All italophiles will respond to Puglia’s rich combination of an ancient landscape, with olive trees dating back to the Romans, picturesque trulli, magnificent Norman cathedrals standing beside the azure waters of the Adriatic, and the Baroque splendours of Lecce.

This beautiful corner of Italy, with its exotic links with Greece, lying just across the Adriatic, possesses a series of unexpected delights: the splendour of the mosaics covering the entire floor of Otranto cathedral and little hilltowns rivalling anywhere in central Italy. To the north of the province stands the severe Castel del Monte, built by the Emperor Frederick II, who loved this area.

We are visiting a number of sun-bleached private villas, which will give you a further insight into one of the most interesting if neglected areas of Italy.
