Description

Discover Puglia and learn the history of the olive oil with this half-day bike tour.
 
Starting out from Albergabici in Montalbano you’ll reach the olive grove plain and the ancient Traiana road. In the past this road 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 you will learn about the history of the olive oil from cultivation to harvest, and the different production methods depending on its final use: from the lamp oil to the high quality extra virgin. 
 
On the trail you will visit an hypogeum oil mill with old millstone and presses, a fortified masseria farmhouse, a modern mill and a centenary olive tree and enjoy an olive oil tasting.
 
Please note: Since 15th June until end of August the tour only runs in the afternoon starting around 5pm in order to come back within sunset.
