Itinerary
Starting out  from Albergabici in Montalbano we’ll reach the olive grove plain and the ancient Traiana road that in the past connected Rome to Brindisi and today links Fasano and Ostuni with a paved cycling path, with hardly any traffic, full of spots of interest that describe what rural life used to be like.

During the tour we explain the history of the olive oil, from cultivation to harvest of olives describing the different production methods depending from on its final use: from the lamp oil to the high quality extra virgin we’ll tell you about the history and the passion developed over the centuries, always in tight connection with the local community.

On the trail we will visit an hypogeum oil mill with old millstone and presses, a fortified masseria farmhouse, a modern mill and a centenary olive field. Is possible to arrange an extra virgin olive oil tastings.

Another Great Day in Puglia

Wonderful tour! Daniele was knowledgeable, fun, and attentive! The level was easy (would be fine for kids). The scenery is beautiful. We learned a great deal about the ancient olive trees (and more), and even met a few locals. Would highly recommend!
