Also known as “Le Puglie”, this region is truly a plurilingual land, a place that hides different souls, suspended between nature, history, tradition, taste and spirituality, to be visited twelve months a year.
Puglia, the heel of the boot, is a lovely region, a strip of land stretching in the sea with wonderful beaches and all tastes, from the sandy Torre dell’Orso and Porto Cesario to the riviera made of rocks in Otranto and Santa Maria of Leuca, where the Ionian – crystalline and calm – and the Adriatic – are mixed together and blend with the intense blue. The options for those who love the sea are infinite, from Gallipoli the “Gemma del Salento” to Gargano the “Sperone d’Italia”, stretching in the clear waters of the sea that hosts the beautiful Tremiti Islands.
Nature is still the protagonist in Puglia, with the Murge National Park and the Gargano National Park with the wild Umbrian Forest, salt lakes and lakes. You can also visit the Torre Guaceto marine reserve, the deep gravy of Laterza and the large valleys of Altamura, which, with their impressive landscapes, characterize the interior of the region.
For those who want to travel in history, Apulia offers a wide range of sites that tell the ancient origins of this land: from prehistory to Magna Grecia, from the imperial age to the Renaissance, to the splendor of the baroque of Lecce and Salento.
The Trulli, such as the Valle d’Itria, offer an evocative witness to the rural past of the region while numerous castles embellish the coasts of the South, in memory of a time when goods and dangers came from the sea.
Those who love tradition and popular music, however, can not help but turn to the innumerable country festivals and festivals that move from one village to the other in the summer.
The provinces of Apulia are: Bari (capital), Barletta Andria Trani, Brindisi, Foggia, Lecce, Taranto.
