If you are looking for the best holiday destinations in southern Italy, we have some useful tips to help you organize your journey.
Everyone knows the most important holiday destination cities in Italy – Rome, Venice, Florence, but there are so many other heavenly places to visit in our country, and one of them is Puglia; one of the most breathtakingly beautiful regions situated at the “heel” of the Italian “boot”.
Here you will find some stunning beaches where you can relax and sunbathe to your heart’s content. You will also find historic baroque cities full of art and culture, such as Ostuni, Lecce, Taranto, etc. People are very friendly and approachable in this region and provide many traditional and cultural events throughout the summer. The most well known is “La notte della Taranta”, a spectacular music festival that takes place every year in August and attracts thousands of visitors.
Of course, when talking about Italy we mustn’t forget to mention Italian food!! In Puglia you can enjoy some of the best Italian cuisine on offer. For instance, the mouthwatering “burrata”, a fresh cheese made from mozzarella and cream, or “la focaccia pugliese”, a special pizza from this region, and all washed down with a bottle of the local red wine!
Accommodation is also very special here. All the usual options are available, hotels, apartments, b&b, camping, etc., but if you are feeling a little bit more adventurous, you could try the fantastic experience of living in a “trullo”, a very cozy and traditional Apulian stone construction with a conical roof.
