Puglia: What you’ll fall in love with
Authenticity presides in every corner of this Southern Italian region, which dominates Italy’s boot heel. Stroll down time-worn paths in fascinating cities such as Bari and Lecce, getting swept up in the slow-paced life the locals known as Pugliese enjoy. As you explore the region, its extensive history, miles of sun-drenched beaches, and the conical homes of Alberobello will capture your imagination. But, it will be the region’s unpretentious charms—and mouthwatering cuisine—that win your heart.
Why go now:
To enjoy a quieter, off-the-beaten-path locale before others catch on without sacrificing any of the things that make Italy a show-stopper: exquisite food, stunning views, and a healthy dose of la dolce vita.
What our travelers say:
“Southern Italy is lovely. It’s so different from other Italian regions we’ve visited in the past. The Sassi di Matera cave dwellings and the trulli houses in Alberobello were places I had looked forward to seeing for years. But, there are many more nice surprises in Puglia, too!”
