The tour price includes: environmental/hiking guide.
Price for 2 people: 40,00 €
Meeting place: ARIF regional authority farm, near the Acquatetta wood.
The itinerary is immersed in the Murgia and is centered on one of the most important points of naturalistic interest in the Alta Murgia National Park: the Pulo, an elliptical karst depression among the largest in southern Italy.
We will descend to the bottom of the huge crater and walk along a small river through a forested are. On the walls of the north side of this sinkhole we will visit the caves, most likely prehistoric dwellings of hominids.
Various testimonies confirm this thesis: the archaeological finds and the discovery, not far from Pulo, of the skeleton of the well-known “Man of Altamura” (so-called pre-Neanderthal man, who lived in the Pleistocene, in a period between 50,000 and 300,000 years ago).

The traditional Apulian wedding draws strength from the rooted local customs but also from its continuous evolution in line with the present.
High fashion and style blend with manual and sartorial tradition, Carmine Tortorella’s clothes find inspiration in the Murgia landscapes, from white stone to expanses of wheat, but also in his idea of what the future woman would look like.
