PUGLIA – WHY GO?

Italy’s boot heel still remains gloriously untrodden and curious visitors are rewarded with miles of sweeping coastline, hillsides dotted with limestone formations and impressive inland caves.

MUST SEE, MUST DO
Trullis
Alberobello and Locorotondo are home to entire streets of beehive-roofed Trulli homes, packed cheek-by-cheek along winding streets. Trullis originated three or four thousand years ago, but nobody’s really sure how they came about.

Bari
Bari is the regional capital and consists of a rambling old town – full of striking architecture – a major shopping district for frittering away your Euros, and a busy port from where ferries shuttle off to Greece.

Lecce
The town of Lecce, the so-called Florence of the Baroque, has a riotously ornate central piazza and narrow lanes perfect for getting lost in. The local sandstone has a pink tinge that makes rose tinted glasses redundant.

Ostuni
Fortified Ostuni, set on three hills rising over the Adriatic, also begs to be seen. It stands proud above rock-fringed beaches, vineyards and olive groves and its dazzling white buildings are picture-worthy at every turn.

Historical mix
Puglia has been dominated by many a major power resulting in cool Baroque churches to gaze upon, pagan dances to watch and archaeological complexes like Canne della Battaglia and Ignazia to explore.
