Step 4: Ostuni the wonderful white city

Direction Ostuni! 

Starting point of our bike trip we took the time to discover this city which has a certain charm. Perched on a hill, you can see the sea from Ostuni.

The sunsets are also magnificent.

The train station is quite far from the city 30-40 min walk and 10 min drive.

There is a free shuttle bus when you arrive by train that passes every 30 minutes or so at the station in the direction of the historic center.
