Responsible tourism: Italy cycling holiday in Puglia, with e bike
We start exploring the local culture through the ancient houses (still lived in) made in dry stone with conical roofs (the Trulli method). Taste the traditional cuisine of Puglia and travel around all the points of interest whilst respecting the environment (using an electric bike, or e-Bike).
Electric bikes represent a practical and environmentally friendly way to get through city traffic, small towns, and the countryside, whilst taking care of the environment. They have an intelligent motor, which knows when to switch on, depending on how often the rider uses the peddles. e-Bikes can also reach up to 25km per-hour. Traveling around has never been so green or easy!
When planning our tours we are careful to select accommodations, restaurants and transport that demonstrates sustainable environmental stewardship, using local materials and produce whenever possible. We pay attention to the impact of travel and tourism on seasonal, natural and agricultural events, to minimize the impact on the local environment (harvest, plant growth, endangered wildlife, or mating seasons, etc.).
With every tour, we do our best to apply the principles of responsible tourism, enshrined in the charter of the Association for Responsible Tourism in Italy. AITR's charter complies with the Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria.
Choosing this holiday means discovering the real Puglia, seeking and finding some of the best-hidden places, which also means supporting the local community that doesn't always benefit from most active tourist routes.
Climb onto the e-bikes saddle and discover the magic, the colors, and experiences of The Land of Trulli. Also known as Puglia of Trulli; it is a strip of land of central Apulia that embraces the territories of Alberobello, Locorotondo, Selva di Fasano, Castellana Grotte, Martina Franca, Polignano a Mare, Monopoli, Ostuni, and Cisternino.
Whilst here you can admire Trulli homes, manor farms, rural churches, caves: beautiful, historic building surrounded by gardens, olive trees, and vineyards. Travelers can taste traditional local food made of seasonal products enriched with oil, cheeses and bread. The guided tour is very comfortable and well organized. Our cycle tours are suitable for all levels of ability and either for children or adults because e-bikes allow everybody to ride along open countrysides and enjoy breath-taking landscapes effortlessly.
