Culinary experiences


Sunset Picnic

Steal away for a candlelit picnic amongst Torre Maizza’s centuries-old olive trees. Admire the stars in the fresh country air as your waiter unpacks a generous basket filled with delicious treats prepared by our chefs. A personal waiter will be on hand at a discreet distance to ensure your every need is taken care of.


Dinner under the Stars

Admire views of the countryside as the sun sets behind the horizon with a private al fresco dinner for two on our sunset terrace and seasonal dishes from Carosello Restaurant. More info here.


Extra-Virgin Olive Oil Tasting

Considered the lifeblood of Puglia, olive oil can be found on every good menu, enhancing every dish, from antipasti to desserts. In this interactive class, you’ll learn how to become a sommelier of the region’s ‘green gold’ as our tasting master reveals the nuances that give each oil its distinct character.



On site experiences


The Night of The Shooting Stars (during August)

Puglia’s unspoiled beauty doesn’t stop on the land, or at the sea – its clear skies and temperate climate also lend themselves to the eye-opening practise of astronomy. Partake of a special event during your stay with us at Masseria Torre Maizza and immerse yourself in the night sky alongside an expert from Bari Planetary, learning to observe the heavens and the ever-changing multitude of stars, comets and planets that dance across them.
