Travel along the ancient Via Traiana in the footsteps of the ancient Romans and of the knights of Malta. From Ostuni, where you can explore the Parco Regionale delle Dune Costiere; along the way you will be able to admire the different habitats, rural buildings and historical remains that make this area special, and you will also have the opportunity to discover delectable traditional local products.
Ancient olive and carob trees; giant caper bushes; figs and prickly pears; herbs, broom, and orchids: these are only some of the typical species that have been growing naturally in the wild in this area for centuries. Whatever the season, you can enjoy a cornucopia of colours and perfumes that transform the landscape, always offering visitors something new to discover.
No less fascinating is the evidence of the past, jealously protected by nature in this small, but perfectly formed area: from the ancient Roman and Messapian city of Egnazia, to the ancient masserie or farmhouses, or going back even further in time, the dolmen of Montalbano!
A true journey back in time through nature and rural culture, with the chance to discover how ancient flavours are still delighting palates in modern times. All of this makes the Parco Regionale delle Dune Costiere a truly unique and memorable place to visit, again and again!
