Welcome to ceramic central in Puglia. Grottaglie in the boot of Italy is a small mecca for ceramics lovers and those passionate about handmade and hand painted clay pots, tiles, mosaics, tableware, home decorations and much more. Its unique position between the Adriatic and the Ionian Sea gives this town a unique advantage, the presence of vast and deep ravines rich in limestone and clay. A Norman and Medieval city in the past, today Grottaglie is well know for its variety of hand shpainted ceramics many of which have a multi-utilitarian function. During the late afternoon stroll we will be visiting a few galleries, catch some artisan throwing the clay, some painting and hopefully a couple more surprises.
Antimo is more than a guide, he is a true modern renaissance man! He has many gifts and passions and those who know him speak of his energy as infectious. Antimo is Italian and speaks six languages fluently, he is a chef and a wellness buff among other things. While on a virtual tour with Antimo you might be lead into a wonderful mediation!

An enjoyable mise-en-scene of a medieval wedding. Worth seeing! Thumbs up, Matteo!

So many of Antimo's tours are, for me, introductions to places I did not know existed but leave the tour wanting to visit in person myself. I think that is one of the best signs of an excellent guide. Grottaglie is in this category for me now - it's a lovely small town focused on traditional ceramics. We even got to see inside a family villa, including seeing ancient columns on the property and the villa owners' amazing discovery of a very old crypt underneath one of their buildings. This was another very enjoyable tour with Antimo.
