Art

Not just seaside, trulli, masserie and olive trees. Apulia is a region of art and culture. Have fun finding the pieces of the Apulian history, from Prehistory to the cathedrals, from castles to modern museums. It’s fascinating to follow the defensive wall, which over the centuries led Byzantines, Normans, Suevians and Angevins to build towers, castles and fortified villages.

From Alberobello to Otranto, from Locorotondo to Specchia, discover the taste of slow living, where flavors, traditions and folklore live unchanged; visit the workshops and relive the thousand-year old tradition of handmade art with ancient materials, like pottery, ceramics, papier-mâché and the stone from Lecce.

Nature

800 kilometers of coastline from the Salento to the Gargano, of sheer cliffs on the sea and stretches of white sand, cliffs and coves, spectacular caves and multicolored sea-bottoms. Along the two seas, the Ionian and Adriatic Sea, you find beach resorts for everyone: playgrounds for children, sports, meetings with authors and fun.
And the coastal lakes, the reserves and the natural parks.
