Ostuni’s hilltop citadel comes into focus as you edge nearer to the city, and you’ll tick off its best bits on this trip. It’s nicknamed the White Town, which makes sense when you see the chalky complexion of the houses. As your guide picks a path through the narrow flagstone streets, you’ll duck beneath century-old archways and flower-spotted vines. St Oronzo Tower’s one of the first stops, where you’ll have to crane your neck to see the top of the obelisk-like column. Venture further into the old town, and you’ll soon reach the jewel in Ostuni’s crown – the Duomo di Ostuni. This sand-coloured cathedral peeks above the surrounding whitewashed buildings, and features a huge rose window above the entrance. After you’ve had a look inside, your guide will leave you to nose around the city for a while before calling time on the trip.
