Puglia, the “heel” of the boot is a fascinating ancient region with hundreds of charming little villages many of which go back to the second or thirds century BC. Lecce is one of the most important cities often referred to as the “Florence of the South” for its baroque architecture. Alberobello is a town in the heart of the Itria Valley home to thousands of “trulli,” stone huts with distinctive conical roofs. Ostuni is also known as the white city, every home is washed with limestone on the outside, a common practice throughout the southern part of the region. An incredible coastline of over 500 miles wraps the region around the Adriatic and the Ionian Sea and frames low hills and plateaus filled with grapes and ancient olive trees.
Puglia has been ranking for the past three years as one of the must visit places in the world. A perfect option to the too touristy and crowded Tuscany, Cinque Terre and Amalfi Coast. Puglia offers you the most incredible hearty food, amazing climate, fabulous beaches, millions of ancient olive trees, and some of the most luscious wines in the entire country.
