Puglia; a tourist haven

Known for its picturesque hill towns, centuries-old farmland and Mediterranean coastline, Puglia is a tourist haven and one of the most famous regions in Italy.

The region boasts of an abundance of everything needed to make it a great tourist destination; ancient towns with rich histories, beautiful cathedrals designed by the best architects in Europe, olive-green seas, wines from the best vines, and foods that look too beautiful to be eaten, pleasant weather and most importantly, residents that are welcoming, outgoing, and easy-going; to top it all, an exotic ambience that is unrivalled in Italy.

Boasting about 500 miles of coastline with hundreds of attractive towns from Lecce to Otranto, Ostuni, Polignano a Mare, Martina Franca, The Valle d'Itria and many others, Puglia is one of the top holiday spots in Italy.

Puglia's rich history stems from its being a popular pathway for departing crusaders, invaders and colonisers of some significant parts of Europe. The history-rich region has been occupied at one point or the other by the Turks, Venetians, Greeks, Romans, Normans, Byzantines, and Spaniards, each leaving an indelible mark in the region to give it an exotic culture that cuts across the world.

All these and more make Puglia one of the best tourists region in Europe and a great place to enjoy the outdoor lifestyle.
