4.7 / 5

based on 6 reviews

Ostuni is a special visit. The white city fascinates with its originality. We note the imprint of various cultures that have appeared over the centuries. A mix of architectural styles that reflect the succession of oriental and Venetian dominations. It is worth putting Ostuni among the Apulian stops worthy of a visit

Money well spent.

Mario our guide spoke excellent English and my wife and I found our walking tour of Ostuni very interesting and informative. It helped to make our stay much more enjoyable.

Great tour guide who adjusted to the needs of the group - a lot of information from history to culture to daily life.

Very interesting! Very competent. No sales event. Incredible. The Greeks and Romans processed olives here.

A pleasant walk, our guide Floriana was very kind and very helpful
