The best part was just seeing this region of Italy, enjoying the history, the lovely lanes and high stone walls, the fields of gorgeous flowers, and also receiving the attractive jersey that depicts the area of Alberobello and the Trulli homes.

The rural route was beautiful and showed us parts of Italy that few get to see. Loved biking along old Roman roads through old olive groves and fields of flowers. The cooking class with Gianna was a highlight.
