Valle d’Itria is located in the heart of Puglia and coincides with the southern part of the Murge plateau. Also known as “Valle dei Trulli”, it extends between the provinces of Bari, Taranto and Brindisi and includes the municipalities of Locorotondo, Martina Franca and Cisternino, Alberobello, Ostuni and Ceglie Messapica.
The main characteristics of the valley are the trulli, which are typical cone-shaped stone dwellings, and then, the farms and the rural landscape characterized by the high use of local stone, used to build dry stone walls.
A fabulous landscape, a unique panorama, orchards, olive groves and vineyards are the predominant crops: here are produced excellent wines such as the “Bianco Locorotondo” and extra virgin olive oil. The Valle d’Itria is a succession of wonderful color effects, a riot of colors ranging from the green of small oak forests to centuries-old olive trees and vineyards, to the white of the trulli and farms.
The Valle d’Itria is crossed by the cycle track of the Acquedotto Pugliese, a cycle path built along the main direction of the Acquedotto, a great work created in the early 1900s. The first stretch of 11 kilometers of the cycle path can be used from 2014 and is included between Cisternino and Ceglie Messapica.
