Individual and Escorted Holidays to Puglia

 

Puglia, a southern region forming the heel of Italy’s “boot,” is known for its whitewashed hill towns, centuries-old farmland and hundreds of kilometers of Mediterranean coastline. Capital Bari is a vibrant port and university town, while Lecce is known as “Florence of the South” for its baroque architecture. Alberobello and the Itria Valley are home to “trulli,” stone huts with distinctive conical roofs.

Puglia is a rolling landscape made up of equal parts lush greenery and pale gold rock formations. The Adriatic Sea is its east coast and the Ionian its south, so it has fantastic long, white-sand beaches and fish is a huge part of their cuisine. Everywhere we went, restaurants boasted fabulous fish dishes. The region also produces 80pc of Europe’s pasta so unsurprisingly it features strongly on all menus, too.

Throughout history, Puglia has been invaded by many nations: the Mycenaean Greeks, the ancient Romans, the ancient Greeks, the Carthaginians, the Normans, the Spanish and the Turks. Thus, Puglia is steeped in extraordinary ancient history, with especially strong ties to Greece that unfold as you travel around the region.
