From Alberobello, the route soon reaches quiet country lanes with vineyards and olive groves on each side. Making the best use of cyle routes to avoid the traffic, you soon reach the outskirts of Putignano,. This is a typical small town where the modern town surrounds the old walled town. Your route takes you through the old historic town. Then aftr a bit of twisting and turning, you soon reach quiet lanes again with barely a car on the road before reaching the outskirts on Noci. Take time to relax in one of the cafes by the piazza and watch italian life go by. Then the route takes you through the centro storic, and then out of town to finally regain a quiet cycle route taking you back towards Alberobello. Avoiding the main routes, you arrive back in Alberobello by the famous Trulli church, San Antonio before winding you way downhill through the trulli village back to your starting point.


Tip van de auteur

Get your refreshments before entering the Centro Storico in both Putignano and Noci as there is far more choice that way but it's always a good idea to carry snacks and plenty of water with you for the day.

Noci in particular has a fiendish one-way system, so take care to stick to the main route to reach the piazza.

Before starting your ride it’s always worth inspecting your bike for any damage. Check for any damage to the frame, components or wheels. Ensure there are no loose cables and that the tyres are inflated and the brakes are working. Always wear a helmet when cycling. If you are doubtful of the condition of your rental bike please call the office or the local bike hire on the number provided in your information pack.

Beware of traffic especially when entering and leaving the towns where the traffic flow tends to be highest. Take care on descents; make the most of the downhill but don’t speed around corners where you can’t see what’s coming ahead of you on the narrow single-track roads.  There are also some overhanging trees so watch out for wet patches of tar or fallen branches on the road. Always treat descents with respect!

Do remember to ride on the right-hand side of the road and whilst drivers in Puglia are respectful of cyclists', please do be mindful of other road users at all times, obeying local road signs and any change in road conditions.

Stop and browse on market day in Putignano, it's on the route!

Soak up the streets and charming atmosphere of Alberobello

Do take the time to wander about Alberobello on foot, the best streets are cobbled with steps.  Get a town centre walking map from your accommodation or from almost any shop. For a couple of more unusual local attractions visit Trullo Sovrano,  the only 2 story trullo which is  set up like a living museum or the Museo del Territorio - Casa Pezzolla which covers the history and building of the Trulli.


Try and arrive between 12-2pm and take lunch in the piazza. Noic is surrounded by trulli houses, nestled in the surrounded woods. The historic centre of Noci are dotted with “gnostre”, (original courts closed on three sides and overlooking the street). You may also like to visit the Church of Santa Maria della Scala, with the Benedictine convent and a centrea which restores antique books (and repair many antique books during the Florence floods of 1966).

Food and Drink

It's always a good idea to take enough snacks and drinks with you for the day. If you are not going be passing through towns between outside the hours for 12noon and 2pm, you may find many cafes and restaurants closed. Always take plenty of water with you (at least 2 litres).
