What to see in Apulia
The Trulli of Alberobello, Polignano a mare, the Gargano National Park, the Alta Murgia National Park, the Fasano Zoo, Andria, Brindisi, Barletta, the Castellana Caves, Castel del Monte, these are just some of the main attractions of this beautiful region, Puglia. Also called the "heel" of the boot, Puglia is a land of culture, nature, history, art and taste, where travel becomes the best way to experience a genuine people, an authentic land and breathtaking landscapes. Visiting Apulia allows you to change your view of life as a whole, because suddenly the dream will seem more vivid and real.
The things to see and the emotions to experience in Puglia are many and diverse and very often go beyond a simple summer vacation, becoming a real experience absolutely to be repeated.
Andria and the Castel del Monte
Andria is one of the most visited cities by tourists from all over the world: it is located in the vicinity of Castel del Monte and immersed in the Alta Murgia National Park, and is, together with the castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Castel del Monte is a symbol of harmony and architectural perfection, one of the most famous castles in Europe built by Frederick II of Swabia. The city of Andria is then dotted with historical monuments and many alleys, including even the narrowest street in Europe.
Alberobello and the Trulli
Another indissoluble symbol of Apulia are undoubtedly the Trulli of Alberobello. Trulli are white huts built of brick with a double covering and very small windows. The characteristic sign is the decorative pinnacle on top of the roof and the symbolic white inscriptions that served to ward off evil influences. To visit Alberobello is to find yourself catapulted into an ancestral and almost unreal place, totally detached from reality. An experience absolutely to be lived.
Polignano a Mare
One of the most beautiful and characteristic towns in Puglia is Polignano a Mare: it is located a short distance from Bari and Alberobello, and is the famous town where the famous Italian singer-songwriter Domenico Modugno was born. In fact, in the square you will find a statue dedicated to him behind which you can have a fantastic view of the blue sea.
Known as the Florence of the South, Lecce is an elegant, charming city with a wealth of monuments to see, both Roman, medieval and Renaissance. Lecce Baroque is a unique architectural style with refined decorations and completely innovative and distinctive buildings that will leave you breathless.
The capital of Puglia is also one of the most beautiful cities to see in the region, open, dynamic, cosmopolitan and at the forefront of tourist hospitality. Bari is a pilgrimage destination for many Christians who visit the Basilica of St. Nicholas of Bari. You can stroll through the old town, its historic center, or walk along the Lungomare (waterfront promenade) admiring the Art Nouveau buildings while enjoying a splendid view of the Adriatic Sea.
The most beautiful beaches in Apulia
Nature and relaxation lovers cannot miss a stay in Salento, a popular summer vacation destination for thousands of Italians and others. A tour of Salento cannot leave out a stop in Gallipoli, the pearl of the Ionian Sea, with the famous beaches of Punta Pizzo and Punta della Suina. Then just continue to Pescoluse, the absolutely most striking stretch of coastline in Salento, and finally visit Santa Maria di Leuca and see the Devil's Cave.
The Tremiti Islands
The most beautiful sea in Puglia? It can be found in this small archipelago of five islands-San Domino, San Nicola, Cretaccio and Pianosa and Capraia. The unspoiled nature, turquoise waters, reefs and spectacular seabed provide an extraordinary glimpse of Puglia's purest beauty.
Trekking in Apulia
The Alta Murgia National Park
Amid archaeological sites, flora and fauna, the Alta Murgia National Park allows you to experience the typical Apulian landscape on foot, all the way to fortified farms and the nothing short of magical Castel del Monte. From the Adriatic Riviera to the Lucanian mountains, the park holds the typical Mediterranean steppe.
The Caves of Castellana
The quintessential natural spectacle, the Castellana Caves are reached via a 70-meter-deep and approximately 2-hour-long path. In the Caves the temperature gets colder and the humidity rises, but as soon as you are inside the Grave, the first cave, your perception of the world will be totally different.
The Gargano National Park
When it comes to trekking, the Gargano Park is definitely the most famous because it allows both mountain biking and vacationing. It is an environment rich in biodiversity, with a promontory composed of pine and holm-oak forests, with inland opportunities to come across many quaint villages.
