EXPERIENCE PUGLIA, ITALY
ITALY... time and time again it is the most requested destination by clients. And Italy recently took the top spot for the most wished for destination in a survey conducted by Condé Nast Traveler.
But when traveling during peak seasons you will definitely fight the crowds. Cities like Venice, Florence, and Rome will be packed with tourists. Trust me, they’re still worth a visit but take some time to also explore this lesser known area of Italy…
PUGLIA represents seaside fishing villages along the Adriatic Sea, rugged cliffs and stunning beaches. But there is so much more… historic ancient villages, olive groves, and vineyards. The best part is that this area is still not overly filled with tourists so visit before it’s found!
During summer months, food festivals, concerts and other special events pop up across the historic towns and beach villages.
Here are some unique experiences in Puglia:
GET LOST IN MATERA…
This unique town with its cave dwellings and stone churches is one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites. Some caves are still uninhabited but most are now homes, hotels, restaurants and bars. You can even stay in a cave while visiting this area!
TASTE LOCALLY PRODUCED OLIVE OILS…
The region of Puglia produces more olive oil than any other, and accounts for around 40% of Italy’s total olive oil production. Enjoy tours, tastings and lunches at local farms.
EXPLORE THE COAST…
From whitewashed buildings, picturesque harbors filled with fishing boats, crystal clear waters, beautiful beaches to breathtaking cliffs, Puglia’s 500 miles of coastline will take your breath away.
These unique small huts are characterized by their whitewashed stone walls, cone roofs and freestanding construction, many trulli have symbols painted on the roofs, usually with religious or astrological connotations.
If you’re looking for a new vacation destination, one that not too many people have explored, one that is filled with history, vineyards, olive groves, and the most beautiful beaches, then Puglia might be your next vacation spot!
