Puglia, located in the heel of Italy’s boot, is a captivating destination renowned for its stunning coastline, rich history, and culinary delights. With over 800 kilometres of coastline bordering the Adriatic and Ionian Seas, Puglia boasts some of Italy’s most pristine beaches and crystal-clear waters. From the white cliffs and turquoise grottoes of Polignano a Mare to the sandy shores of Pescoluse, known as the “Maldives of Italy,” there’s no shortage of breathtaking coastal scenery to explore. Visitors can swim, sunbathe, and snorkel along the picturesque coastline or embark on a boat tour to discover hidden coves and sea caves.
In addition to its coastal splendour, Puglia is steeped in history and culture, with a wealth of archaeological sites, medieval towns, and UNESCO World Heritage sites to explore. The city of Lecce, known as the “Florence of the South,” is famous for its Baroque architecture, while the ancient city of Matera, just across the border in Basilicata, offers a glimpse into Italy’s past with its cave dwellings and rock-cut churches. Puglia’s charming hilltop villages, such as Ostuni and Alberobello with its iconic trulli houses, provide a glimpse into traditional Italian life and offer stunning views of the surrounding countryside.
Puglia’s culinary scene is a highlight of any visit, with its fresh seafood, locally grown produce, and flavorful regional specialities. Visitors can feast on fresh seafood dishes like grilled octopus and seafood risotto, indulge in creamy burrata cheese and homemade orecchiette pasta, and sample local wines such as Primitivo and Negroamaro. Puglia’s olive oil is also renowned worldwide for its quality, with many olive groves scattered throughout the region producing some of Italy’s finest olive oil. With its diverse landscapes, rich cultural heritage, and mouthwatering cuisine, Puglia offers a truly unforgettable experience for travellers seeking an authentic taste of Italy.
