Excursion to Ostuni Visit the striking hilltop village of Ostuni, situated within touching distance of the seashore and known as "La Citta Bianca" (The White City) due to its fortress of white washed buildings clustered together on the hillside and which give it a very exotic feel, more Greek or Middle Eastern than Italian. The brightness of its whitewashed houses, set against the pink-tinged brown of its principal monument, makes the town stand out in the green of the surrounding area. Your local expert will guide you through a series of small roads, alleys and arches where hints of the Middle Ages are at hand everywhere from the portal of a palace, to the walls of a convent or the front of a church.
