About this trip

This culinary, wine-tasting, and walking tour features great stays in two amazing locations in one of the most beautiful areas of Italy – Puglia (‘Apulia’ in Italian), nicknamed the heel of Italy. Puglia’s cuisine has been influenced over the centuries by its neighbours – and invaders. The Greeks, the French, the Germans, the Arabs – all of them have influenced today’s Apulian cuisine. This striking land, kissed by the Mediterranean sun for over 300 days a year, is scattered with fortified castles and whitewashed Trulli (Puglia’s distinctive conical shaped dwellings), and carpeted with a silvery sea of olive groves. It also has an incredibly rich natural phenomenon: the area produces most of the country’s extra virgin olive oil, full-bodied wines and is famous for its intensely flavoured olives, table grapes, almonds and figs. Other local specialties include orecchiette, an ‘ear-shaped’ pasta, seafood risotto, fava beans (which are dried and made into a paste) and burrata, a creamy cheese similar to mozzarella.


We will also be doing yoga, meditation, workouts, and possible some sea kayaking (depending on weather).  We look forward to making this trip a nice mix of culture, restfulness, and activity all rolled into one amazing experience!


Our lodging accommodations will depend on the amount of clients going. I have added photos of the different options/bedrooms to give you an idea. Once we get an idea of how many people are going, single, and double occupancy I will solidify the accommodations. If you have specific questions please email Events@My1FitLife.com .

You can take anyone into the gym and motivate them to live fit for a day, but if you take them into nature, you can inspire them for life! That's the motto of Michelle Steinke-Baumgard and Keith Baumgard from My1FitLife. Six years ago, Michelle and Keith joined together and started what has become much more than just a fitness company; they have created a tribe, a community and a feeling that inspires you long after you leave their retreats. Michelle and Keith take fitness up a notch and remind you that living fit is not about making your body smaller, but instead, fitness is about making your life BIGGER!!! When you come for a retreat with My1FitLife you will accomplish big things; you will learn to be brave, to explore, to stretch your boundaries and to live your life to the fullest.

I just loved the "antiquity and simplicity" of this region. The great cities of Italy are splendid, but I love the roads less traveled and this region was just that! The foods, the smells, the sights, the old villages, farms, and markets and, of course, the wonderful weather (not to forget the wines, the cheeses, the olive oils, etc.) all combined to make this a most delightful, and very special trip. I loved the outdoor and nature venues that the region presented. Bicycling through thousands of year-old olive groves and seeing and touching these wondrous trees was epic. Swimming in the Adriatic Sea was amazing and, of course, visiting the trulli was awesome and even whimsical. Also, there was something very special about friendships that evolved this trip and old ones that rekindled. These bonds that formed are very strong and continue on! Apulia will forever hold a special place in my heart!
I had an amazing time with this amazing group of people! The food at the farms and the winery was the best I had! I just can't believe the spread they put out! Their hospitality was above and beyond my expectations. It was was like nothing I've ever seen. The tours were fantastic!
This trip was life changing and soul restorative!! Thank you! It was a great trip: great people, great accommodations, incredible trip organizers/hosts -- who went every extra mile to ensure that the trip was great for all! Wonderful tours/events, transportation, food/wine - well, wonderful everything!! I highly rate this trip and the My1FitLife Adventures Team!!! This was the best trip ever!

The beauty and history of this area caused me to say “wow” many times. I enjoyed every meal I tried and tried some new food items that were very good. It is always great to reconnect with old friends and meet new friends. I look forward to more adventures!
We had an awesome time. Beautiful area to see. Great excursions. Hotel was good and just a Tuk Tuk away from town
