Explore Authentic Puglia with the Journey of Your Dreams!

We’ll start from Bari, the lively port city that will welcome us into the heart of Puglia, where we’ll spend our first night. The following day, we’ll move to discover three of the region’s most famous gems: Polignano a Mare, Alberobello, and Ostuni. Here, immersed in the culture and history of Salento, we’ll spend a night before heading even further south towards Lecce, the “Florence of the South,” which will be our base for the remaining three nights. From here, we’ll explore charming villages and beaches, including Otranto, Gallipoli, Mulino d’Acqua Beach, and Santa Maria di Leuca, letting ourselves be enchanted by the timeless beauty of the Salento coast.

Welcome to the journey that will let you experience the most authentic Apulia

And here we are at the fourth edition of “My Friend In On Tour”! 🥰 This time, I’ve prepared for you a tour to discover my wonderful region of origin, to be experienced like a true “local”!

I’ll be delighted to accompany you in discovering one of the most beautiful regions in the world (according to National Geographic, which in 2023, and for two consecutive years, awarded it the title of: Best Value Travel Destination In The World). I’ll lead you through the hidden treasures and lesser-known gems of Puglia, unveiling the secrets of the culture, tradition, and local cuisine.

È stata una delle esperienze più belle della mia vita, e tutto grazie alla gentilezza, alla professionalità di Roberta, ideatrice del programma My Friend In. Attraverso il sito web, disponibile in tre lingue, io e un mio amico abbiamo acquistato diversi pacchetti per il nostro primo viaggio a Gran Canaria. Vi consiglio assolutamente le escursioni, abbiamo esplorato posti bellissimi come il Barranco de las vacas dove abbiamo scattato delle bellissime foto, spiagge paradisiache come quella di Anfi e Amadores e piccoli villaggi coloratissimi come il porto di Mogán, le dune di maspalomas etc..: Questo viaggio non solo ci ha regalato emozioni bellissime ma anche una nuova amica! Grazie Roby, sicuramente ci rivedremo presto!

Travelling for Gran Canaria and choosing My Friend In was one of the best decisions for our holidays . A wonderful experience thanks to the knowledge and organization of My friend in which led us to discover wonderful places such as Anfi del Mar, the Maspalomas Dunes, Mogan, Las Palmas and many others. With Roberta, an incredible and friendly Woman more than a guide , she accompanied us through this journey making us feel like real locals visiting the whole island in comfort and carefree.

Mi primera experiencia “solo” en Sudamérica, decidí viajar a Mexico (Yucatán). Pero no solo del todo, porque decidí contratar el maravilloso plan de viaje que ofrece My friend In. Roberta, que es la artífice de este genial proyecto, me asesoró en todo momento sobre lo vuelos más baratos, los alojamientos con mejor calidad precio y un itinerario completo de más de 1.000km por todo el Yucatán e incluyendo actividades que personalmente me gustan como buceo o visita a cenotes. Además, pude disfrutar de su compañía como guía y de su experiencia en viajes, durante toda la expedición. Honestamente es una persona maravillosa y entregada a su proyecto y clientes. 100% recomendable, sin duda, repetiré en otro destino.
