Fall in Love with the enchanting region of Puglia and travel with us to this unspoiled and sun-kissed part of Italy.  Puglia boosts 400km strip of land that makes up the heel of Italy’s boot. Puglia is one of Italy‘s most charming regions. Known for its never-ending coastline, white-washed hill towns and sublime food, it feels very different to the rest of the country and is it the perfect place for those looking to get off the beaten track and enjoy “La Dolce Vita”.

With the Adriatic Sea to the east and the Ionian Sea to the south, Puglia is a beach lover’s dream with everything from long stretches of golden sand to pebbly enclaves and hidden coves.

Pretty coastal towns such as Polignano a Mare, Trani and Monopoli are perched atop the rocks looking out over the turquoise waters. The towns themselves are clusters of low laying white houses punctuated by the occasional church spire.

It’s not all beaches, however, and heading inland to the Valle d’Itria the landscape becomes a tapestry of olive groves, vineyards and the conical trulli houses typical of this region. Set on a high fertile plain stretching from Putignano in the north to Ostuni in the south, the valley is a giant outdoor playground perfect for walking and cycling.

Its coastal position meant Puglia was invaded and colonized by the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Normans and Spanish and each left their unique mark. In the south the town of Lecce is known as the Florence of the South. It is filled with baroque churches and palaces while all over the region impressive castles are still standing guard. In the West in the neighboring region of Basilicata lays the unique Unesco town of Matera famous for the cave houses “I Sassi” that became famous as the backdropped of Mel Gibson movie “The Passion”. Most hotels in Puglia are known as “Masserie”. They are luxurious fortified plantations surrounded by colorful and lush gardens, citrus and olive trees.

The food in Puglia is some of the best in the country. Traditional Mediterranean flavors: olives, lemons, tomatoes, fresh burrata cheese, grains, fresh seafood create flavorful heart-warming peasant dishes. World famous wines like Primitivo and Aglianico make a perfect pairing.

As you can see Puglia is a magical destination a hidden gem that will give you an unforgettable travel experience to last you a lifetime.
