    Paola and Donato have “unearthed” a brilliant wine museum dated back to 1572 with lots of hard work and passion. The museum is very interesting and Paola’s tour fun and informative. Then down to the cellar for tasting and yummy local food. We tasted 3 wines which were all superb but varied. We enjoy being able to chat with these 2 very passionate young men who shared their journey with us. They were also interested in our experiences with wine at home and elsewhere.

    If you are in Altamura don’t miss this enjoyable and very good value for money tour.

    Very warm welcome, enthusiastic explanation from Donatella and Franscesco! The coral-like carbonate structures were very exciting, never seen this before. Definitely worth the visit!

    We visited the Palazzo Baldassarre a couple weeks ago during our stay in Altamura. Donatella was our guide & we couldn't have asked for a better guide! She was enthusiastic, informative, & knowledgeable about the subject. We speak a little Italian & like practicing, so she spoke in Italian with us & explained things slowly & clearly in order to help us understand/learn. She even presented the cave model in a fun & interactive way. The 3D video of the cave exploration was very fun. We have recommended this place to many of our friends & are excited to return to Altamura for a longer stay (& to say "ciao" to Donatella again)! Thank you!

    It’s one of the bigger trullis and has a first floor which makes it special. The interior gives one an idea of how the locals would have lived sometime ago.
    Doesn’t take too long to visit-30minutes or so.
    Cost 1.50euros.
    Little wine shop at the back with tables outside if you like to take it the surroundings with some vino.

    Really worth to see this house-museum very kindly shown by the owner, a grand-grand child (and an artist himself) of the first creator of the cola cola whistle, later diversified in funny different shapes and characters, for example representing nations, shown like in a museum in the house where 4 generation of artists lived, now set up nicely by the 5th generation! The story of what initially was a child toy, and became a symbol of the region, known and requested also abroad, was well described with the support of all the items in display, mostly family memorabilia. So nice to see the enthusiasm of a young man for keeping running such a fascinating family heritage.
    You can also buy of course a lot of varieties of colorful whistles, a really nice souvenir.

    It wasn't planned, just suggested from people of Gioia as place to pay visit to, so we did. A tour organised within the castle of Gioia, full of things to see from the far history of Italy. Interesting stories accounted on the speakers guides, lot to lean about our past. A place to not miss if you are in Gioia for longer than one day.

    What a wonderful little museum! It gives you an insight into not only the history of baking bread in this region (with its special soil and climate, hence resulting in a beautiful yellow dough), but also into that of an ambitious and successful businessman who started life as a bread courier and ended up with a multinational empire. Alessio has given us a lot of interesting information. The videos and photos make this museum, free of charge, mind you, an unforgettable experience. You must make a booking in advance by phone. We happened to be the only ones yesterday so we had a personal guided tour. It is nice to see how profits can be turned into something enjoyable for everyone.

    This is a great little museum. The staff are so proud and helpful and it is completely free (incuding the audio tour). The exhibits are rare and well displayed, including an amazing ancient Greek urn, which you can actually touch if you want to!!!

    This little museum is an absolute gem of Italian handcraft; each of the terracotta sculptures/figurines is a whistle and the imagination of the sculptors has no boundaries. Very interesting, some of them made me LOL.

    We found this pearl during our stay in Gravina in Puglia. I can’t believe that we were the only visitors…. We had a private tour that showed us beautiful rooms, dresses, ceramics, numismatics (coins) and the couch that was used in the James Bond film No Tine to Die).
    Biggest surprise was the underground church with beautiful frescos

    I think this is the best kept secret of Gravina….
