After the great experience of the Pierluigi's olive oil experience 2016 I decided to repeat this amazing trip also this year. The name changed into 'Authentic Puglia tour' since it is not only about olive oil. It is a visit to a fascinating corner of South Italy where food, culture, traditions and folklore are still authentic.
