The Puglia area of Italy makes a great destination for cyclists. Many bike rental and tour companies operate here, and the cycling terrain is not too difficult for most riders. We chose a company who's owner personally accompanied us on our rides as a guide. For about $70 for a full day, it was a service worth much more, as a lot of the best small roads were unmarked and would have been impossible to find. Also we had our very own tour guide and translator to show us the best cafes and shops to stop in for refreshments and snacks.
Cisternino makes a great central location for cycling adventures in southeastern Italy.
