Welcome to Puglia Futura &Co.

We’re a creative bunch, passionate about food, wine, art, ideas, lifestyle, likeminded friends and authentic travel experiences. Since 2014, we’ve been offering sociable, authentic and unsurpassed boutique lifestyle holidays and courses that take you right to the heart and soul of a unique great destination of Italy’s heel, Puglia.
Our international team of tutors are always there to encourage and support you along the way. They steer clear of technical jargon and focus on helping you to explore southern Italy’s less travelled places through local’s eyes and live unique experiences, including farm-to-table culinary adventures.
Here at Puglia we don’t do big, impersonal group tours and workshops. We couldn’t think of anything worse. When you book on one of our trips you’ll join an intimate group of between 8 – 12 likeminded people who enjoy being creative, learning new things, eating, drinking and generally letting their hair down.

Here are a few more things about Puglia Futura & Co:

The business started as the brainchild of two friends in their early thirties who left the corporate world to spend their days working on what they loved, Puglia. We got started in Lecce in 2011 first as a foundation (Puglia Futura Lic. Ass.) for the enhancement of sustainable and local tourism in Italy’s heel, thanks to a project endorsed by the Regional Government of Puglia. In 2015 Puglia Futura & Co. has been definitely launched.

We are travel experts living and breathing places and people of southern Italy, especially Puglia. So we know how best to avoid tourist traps and go beyond the obvious tick box experiences. Add that to the network of our destinations in Puglia and South Italy, carefully selected, and local partners we’ve collected in our time, you’re guaranteed the best in expert knowledge and insider information.

Planning a perfect trip takes more than knowledge and experience. It takes time. That’s what we offer to you as well. We take the time to design a trip that ticks every box. To experience a place in the right way. To see it from all angles. So that when your clients return home, not only they are refreshed and revitalised, but they are content that they did everything right with their precious time away.
We’ll discuss the trip you want and then go to work to plan out the best itinerary based on requested time, taste and budget.

We loved discovering places, new experiences, and making them accessible to you. In a way that suits their needs. Our purpose is to create something completely unique, whenever they want to travel to, however they want to do it. There’s no off-the-shelf package service in what we offer, because we love to provide our clients with unique and authentic experiences.

We focuse on the experiences and lifestyle, less travelled places, local food & wine, usages, heritage and culture, memories for a lifetime.
The overarching principle that distinguishes us is to provide a really authentic and outstanding experience of Italy’s heel. In particular, we offer unique experiential itineraries, like
