This sleepy region is the rising star of the Italian south. We love the authenticity here - drive past olive groves and ancient family farms then try the food they make in the restaurants and trattoria. The towns all offer something different so visit as many as you can - it's a tough call to pick our favourites but Polignano a Mare and Ostuni are unmissable. This is a great place to dust off your walking boots or jump on a bike too. It's quite flat and there's some great country trails where you can slow down and appreciate the views.
What to see on a Puglia Holiday
This south-eastern stripe of Italy is where you’ll find some of the best examples of southern baroque architecture. Gold-hued Lecce is nicknamed the Florence of the South. An ivory-white cathedral watches over the harbour in Trani. And Gallipoli pairs beach clubs with renowned seafood ristorantes (the local lobster is a must-try). Just don’t forget the town of Alberobello – a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a distinctive skyline of conical-roofed trulli.
