      But I wasn't told that the flight arrival time had changed. I was meeting the group in Bari but they had to wait an hour at the airport till I got the message. And I had contacted Exodus via chat the day before and this was not mentioned. I also... Show more

    Frequently asked questions

    • Will I have a tour guide at all times?

      Yes you will have a guide with you through the tour.

    • How is the weather at the end of March?

      In March Puglia has an average of 12 wet days per month and temps of approx. 18C.

      The Puglia region of Southern Italy enjoys a wonderful Mediterranean climate with all year round sunshine and just enough rainfall to ensure that the green is never too far off. Although Puglia covers a large area it is long and narrow - not more than 30km across. This means that you're never far from the sea which has a moderating effect on the weather.
