Puglia Bike Tour: Cycling Through the History of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
USD 40.36
Overview
Bicycle tours are a great way to get out of plodding buses and go places they can’t reach. This bicycle tour near Ostuni has the added benefit of taking you to visit olive fields, mills, and farms while you learn about local olive oil history. Along the way, you also get a chance to bike through coastal dunes and wetlands. You can ask your guide to organize an olive oil tasting at tour’s end.
What to Expect
Starting out  from Albergabici in Montalbano we’ll reach the olive grove plain and the ancient Traiana road that in the past connected Rome to Brindisi and today links Fasano and Ostuni with a paved cycling path, with hardly any traffic, full of spots of interest that describe what rural life used to be like.

During the tour we explain the history of the olive oil, from cultivation to harvest of olives describing the different production methods depending from on its final use: from the lamp oil to the high quality extra virgin we’ll tell you about the history and the passion developed over the centuries, always in tight connection with the local community.

On the trail we will visit an hypogeum oil mill with old millstone and presses, a fortified masseria farmhouse, a modern mill and a centenary olive field. Is possible to arrange an extra virgin olive oil tastings.
