Apulia (Puglia)

Ostuni

Puglia has been minding its own business for generations, illuminated for English speakers only occasionally by its more adventurous writers.
This is changing. People have noticed, and travel magazines are falling over themselves to tell everyone to go there soon, before mass market tourism changes everything.
We’re within a unique window of opportunity. Visitor infrastructure is sufficient to enable a reasonably comfortable accessible tour, yet the area retains much of its original character.

Lecce Amphitheatre - Makin Tracks Accessible Tours

This is what Lonely Planet has to say –
“Puglia can surely now take its place in the first rank of Italy's famous regions.
Clearly, everything the Italophile craves is there in abundance: ancient towns heavy with the tangible past; extravagant churches dreamt up by Europe's finest architects; the footprints of an endless procession of conquerors and cultures, stamped in stone, gold and marble; seas of olives; olive-green seas; and food the equal of any in Italy.
Travellers bored or worn down by the crowds of Campania and Tuscany can find release in the baroque splendour of Lecce, ‘Florence of the South’, or one of many lesser (but no less beautiful) Pugliese towns.”

Puglia is going to be a very special experience.
With daily excursions, we’ll explore Ostuni, Polignano, Lecce, and much more in this land of the Tarantella.

Hilton Lecce - Makin Tracks Accessible Tours

We have booked into Lecce’s Hilton Garden Hotel - You can understand why we’re excited.
The wheelchair accessible rooms have one double bed, with a second smaller temporary bed. If you prefer two separate but connecting rooms, let us know and we’ll confirm the price.

Although most of the public areas are accessible, the rooftop pool does not have a dedicated hoist or ramp.

The historic town centre is just one mile away.

Breakfast will be at the hotel, while many of our evening meals will be taken in restaurants around the town, so that we can enjoy a variety of cuisine and ambience.

As usual, we will have our extensive collection of accessibility aids, including hoist, shower chairs, & mobility scooters, at no extra charge.
