WHITE TOUR, FROM WHITEWASHING TO WINE Through the narrow streets of the “white city”, discover the art of whitewashing and savour the excellent wine produced in the hills of Ostuni

In the splendid setting of the “white city” let yourself be swept away by the blinding white of the whitewashed houses. The "White tour, from whitewashing to wine" is a unique experience. Together we will discover the alleys that were once the beating heart of the old town and with the help of an expert “lenètore” (local house painter) you can experience the feeling of painting the city walls white, just as it was done in the past. This experience will help us to retrace the past, to relive events that took place in the narrow streets of the village. And after the whitewashing, to satisfy your palate, we will then offer you an excellent glass of wine in one of the most beautiful ravines in the historic center. After this regenerating pause, the journey continues: you will marvel at the three facades of the Santa Maria Assunta cathedral located at the top of the highest hill in the city; you will be taken aback by the expanse of olive trees that, on the horizon, meet the sea, creating a spectrum of beautiful colours that represent "Puglia". And finally, we will show you the true tradition of “tarantism” (pizzica and taranta) with an authentic representation that recalls the true tradition and the birth of this phenomenon so widespread in Puglia and throughout the world.
