Around Ostuni

Around Ostuni

Groves of olive trees, rooted in red soil bordered by stone walls, that sweep down to the coastline of soft white sandy beaches, inlets enclosed by volcanic rock. White conical roofed trullo’s sprinkled around the land, bring a fairytale like atmosphere to Ostuni that sits on the hill-top overlooking sea.

There are countless things to do and see in the surrounding area of Ostuni. The nearby towns of Caravigno, Cisternino, Martina Franaca, Locorotundo and in particular the trullo town of Alberobello have plenty to offer it terms of day trips.

The Zoo / Safari Park near Fasano, is less than a 20 minute drive from Ostuni. The park contains a drive through safari park, a zoo, aquarium and a fun park with water rides, rollercoaster’s and shows. It is the biggest Zoo in Italy with the greatest number of animal species in Europe.
The coastline of Ostuni is outstanding. Immaculate white sandy beaches, some that stretch a few kilometres and others countless small sandy coves enclosed by volcanic rocks that look out on a turquoise sea, conjure up a deserted island experience.

The caves at Grotte di Castellana are about the most jaw-dropping in the world. A 30 minute drive from Ostuni, it is a must do on your stay in this region. Escape the heat of the day by going underground to see the most spectacular stalactites and stalagmites. The vast hall of white columns and luminous lake at the end of the tour through the caves is as big and as magical as you could possibly imagine.
