Also known as “Le Puglie” in the plural form, this region contains, in fact, many souls. The “heel of Italy’s boot,” Apulia is a charming region that can be visited all year round and is suspended among nature, history, tradition, tastes and spirituality.
Apulia, the spur of the Italian Boot, is an enchanting region that spreads lengthwise along the sea – marvelous beaches that will delight every traveler.
For those who want to travel through history, Apulia offers a wide range of places that testify to the ancient origins of this land: from prehistory to Magna Graecia, from the Imperial Age to the Renaissance and the Baroque splendor of Lecce and of Salento. The “trulli” offer an evocative testimony to the rural past of the region. Meanwhile, numerous castles dot the coasts of the southern coast, hinting at an era when both perils and commerce landed on these shores.
For who is interested in tradition and folk music, should attend the numerous festivals and fish “sagre” that in summertime run throughout the region.
Alberobello, the town of the “trulli” – ancient and peculiar stone houses with a conical roof, built without mortar- is so unique that it has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List; the Tremiti Archipelago, a tiny paradise where history and nature merge perfectly and offer a wonderful landscape to explore; the typical “oriecchette”, an homemade pasta that is the symbol of the region; Locorotondo, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy; Ostuni, the white city; the famous “Caves of Castellana”; the countryside characterized by typical farms called “Masserie” and olive groves.
