Look, shoot and eat!

Holiday in Puglia focused on traditional cuisine, local wine and photography.

The tour is divided into two parts:

- 3 days where you can independently visit wine cellars and taste their wines, visit the beautiful towns of Itria Valley and practise with your camera;
- 3 day photography tour with a small group where you won´t have to worry about driving, but only to appreciate the scenery and cuisine of Puglia through the techniques taught by your tutor, a photographer in love with Puglia and its food.

The workshop is highly practice-oriented, but there will be theory sessions and reviews of the photos taken during your stay.

The photography classes will alternate with cookery classes, held in a luxury country manor house, to learn how to make traditional products such as orecchiette and taralli.
