Puglia sits between the Adriatic Sea and the Ionian Sea on the tip of Italy’s heel. The climate of Puglia is typically Mediterranean with hot, dry, summers. Its fertile land produces more wine than any other region, and one-tenth of the wine drunk in Europe comes from here. Puglia, or Apulia as it is sometimes called, is also among Italy’s main producers of olive oil.
With nearly three-quarters of the region surrounded by sea, Puglia is a wonderful destination for a coastal holiday, with some beautiful sandy beaches that slope gently into clear seas.
Puglia has numerous places of interest, Greek and Roman ruins, a necklace of lively fishing villages and medieval hill towns. A great way to explore is to travel from coast to coast, perhaps stopping over for the night. The drive will take you through small towns and villages, interspersed with miles of olive groves and orchards.
There is one sight that you will see only in Puglia, and that is the ‘Trulli’. Whitewashed, coned shaped structures, made of stones held together without mortar, they are visible in almost every field and olive grove, where they usually serve as miniature barns. A remarkable sight is the cluster of trullis, which form the delightful town of Alberobello, and the charming little town of Lecce, with its Barocco-style churches and palazzos.
Puglia ranks as one of the best regions in Italy for total fish harvest. It has some wonderful seafood restaurants, serving freshly caught fish.
There is so much to enjoy from a holiday in Puglia. If you have visited other regions and are looking for somewhere equally interesting, a bit different and less crowded, then Puglia is a wonderful area to visit.
