Holidays to Puglia take you to the sun soaked heel of Italy
which is said to be one of the most beautiful and captivating regions in the country. Puglia is abundant in stunning countryside, sandy beaches, historic cities and splendid locally grown produce for which this food-focused area is particularly famous. Perfect for those wanting to explore by car, the roads are mostly quiet and scenic and will take you to some pretty villages, such as Locorotondo and Cisternino, which are recognised as two of Italy’s ‘most beautiful villages.’ For couples wanting to immerse themselves in the romantic Italian culture, holidays to Puglia are ideal, with the richness of ancient towns, quirky villages and extravagant architecture.
Through the countryside you’ll find clusters of trulli, the distinctive limestone houses peculiar to the area, as well as endless olive groves giving the area a classic Italian feel. Visit the UNESCO-listed town of Alberobello to see the biggest collection of trulli. Travel further south and visit the Salento peninsula, which is home to the baroque city of Lecce
- dubbed the Florence of the South and well worth a visit for the Church of Santa Croce, an elaborate relation of its namesake in Florence.
