A bike tour in the wilder Salento, through olive trees and old farmhouses. Almost the entire route is on paved roads that connect the various Arneo’s municipalities: Veglie, Nardò, Salice Salentino, San Pancrazio Salentino.
On the way there are many rest stops and attractions, such as ‘La Zanzara’ farmhouse, ‘TerreAmare’ farm holiday, ‘Castello Monaci’ and the ancient ‘Cardo Tower’. In all these places, but also in Salice Salentino winery, you can enjoy food and wines.
A 40 km long flat route, which doesn’t have any particularly difficulties.
Often, however, the signs are not visible and the only points of reference are the farmhouses. In addition, the Aqueduct Pugliese is under construction and some roads may be temporarily closed forcing to ride on parallel roads.
Despite many rest stops, it is better to travel with a lot of water, especially in warmer weather, being the track with very little shadow. Chance to buy water and energy drinks at ‘La Zanzara’ farmhouse, Castello Monaci and ‘TerreAmare’ farm holiday.
