Puglia, south-east of Italy, offers a variety of landscapes, sandy beaches and crystal clear waters, picturesque villages, fields of secular olive trees, traditions, castles and baroque-style cities. Its green hills sometimes slope into white sandy beaches towards the blue waters of the Adriatic sea, other times they become abrupt cliffs standing out of the emerald green Ionic sea. Puglia is today considered as one of the most beautiful destinations in Europe, other see it as the new Tuscany.

A few words about gastronomy

The peculiarity of Puglia culinary specialities is the importance accorded to the raw ingredients, no matter if they come from the sea or the land. All ingredients are useful to enhance the savour of the dish. Let’s not forget that in the Apulian gastronomy homemade pasta (orecchiette, cavatelli...) is quite omnipresent and so are dry pulses (broad beans, chickpeas, beans), vegetables (cime di rapa, chicory, wildcardoons...) and cheese (cacioricotta, burrata, caciocavallo). Of course fish and meat are also very common. Find more information in our gastronomic guide…

Informations pratiques

The region of Puglia is very long and narrow. It extends to the north from the Peninsula of Gargano to the extreme south point of Santa Maria di Leuca. The landscapes are punctuated by a series of high cliffs in Gargano area, long beaches, dunes covered with wild Mediterranean vegetation in Ostuni, natural reserve in Torre Guaceto to fine sandy beaches in the laghi alimini near Otranto.

Renting a car is always a good way to visit the region, and discover its secrets as the public transport system is not very efficient. Nevertheless several bicycle itineraries are in place to allow the discovery of the land of the olive-trees under a different point of view. Most of the accommodations leave some bicycles at disposal of the guests.
