Puglia, is also known as Apulia and it sits at the heel of the boot of Italy in the far south. Puglia is renowned for not really being a tourist destination but it is now fast becoming a popular destination for travellers. Puglia does have charm from its’ Baroque towns to its’ olive groves, orchards, azure sea and fine beaches.
Puglia is principally an agricultural region and its’ humble past is reflected throughout, however it does have some interesting sights apart from the rural scenery and the beaches. Puglias top tourist towns include Alberobello, Lecce and Otranto. Part of Alberobello is actually a UNESCO World Heritage site due to its’ preserved dry stone walled buildings. Lecce is famous for its’ mixed architecture and Otranto is the most attractive seaside resort with its’ picturesque town and blue water harbour.
The small Tremiti islands are a busy destination for day trippers enjoying a holiday on the wooded peninsula known as Gargano. Gargano is a national park with rocky shores, and it is now a popular holiday destination. The Salento area is another popular choice for summer holidays in the far south of Puglia.
