4 days tour | Maglie (LE) – Italy | dates from 02/08/17 to 05/08/17 | with Liberty Lines | Otranto
In August, Maglie’s Mercatino del Gusto (18th edition) sets visitors on a gourmand trail amid courtyards, palaces and gardens, for a festival of gastronomy in which food, music and words blend into an unique experience for Apulians and tourists in Salento.
The historic town centre turns into a giant open-air market where to savor every possible Apulian delicacy or learn how to make fresh pasta and pasta filata cheese, or refine one’s taste about wines and craft beers around workshops devised for both kids and adults.
Along the gourmand trails you can stock up on e.v.o. oil, wine or traditional sweets or just take a stroll sinking your teeth into a delicious panino with Martina Franca’s capicola, a piece of Bari focaccia or a Puccia. If you are more into an old-fashioned dinner, sumptuous villas and piazzas offer menus of traditional Apulian cuisine.
At the Mercatino del Gusto, food goes hand in hand with art and culture, with dance performances, readings and plenty of music, from jazz to folk. For the youngsters, the Mercatino junior is an opportunity to learn exiting things in a funny and entertaining way.
