Known for its beautiful beaches and long coastline, white stone villages, and earthy cuisine, the region of Puglia is located in Italy's "heel", a position that often sees it overlooked by travellers. However, if you take the time to stop and stay a while you will discover a land rich in treasures far more valuable than gold; medieval towns and vast olive groves pepper the hillsides, while quaint fishing villages and secluded bays occupy Italy's longest regional coastline. This, certainly, is a land to be explored.
Puglia is home to the â€˜Florence of the South, Lecce, and the unspoiled Salento, although it boasts so many other beautiful spots. Bolstered by temperate microclimates, two national parks, vineyards, more medieval architecture than one could experience in a lifetime, and delicious local specialities, Puglia is a holiday destination you'll never forget.
