Puglia, the “heel” of the Italian “boot”, is a region in the country’s south-east.
Largely intact, less expensive and touristy than many other Italian locations, Puglia has stunning sandy beaches and seascapes on the longest coast of the whole of Italy (865 km), alternating with rocky stretches, promontories and cliffs.
The countryside is highly characteristic, due to hilltop villages with white-washed cottages giving it an ancient flavour.
Puglia’s main city, Bari, is a lively port and university city, while Lecce is called the “Florence of the South” due to its Baroque architecture.
Alberobello and the Itria Valley are famous as the home of trulli, the traditional stone buildings with a characteristic conical roof.
