What did I like best in Puglia ? Hard to say: The clean beaches - the great food - the relaxed, friendly Puglians - the fantastic historic cities like Lecce, Otranto, Alberobello - the funny mushroom-like, cone-shaped "trullis", the dominating house type in central Puglia - and finally the fact that it is not (yet) overcrowded with tourists, even in peak season.
We saw a lot during our Puglian holiday but still there is much to discover: Bari (Old Town), Trani and Castel del Monte are still on our travel whishlist.
A short detour to the neighbouring region Basilicata was also extremely worthwhile. Matera, city of the "sassi" (cave dwellings) and film location for "The Passion of Christ" by Mel Gibson.
- Pros:weather, beaches, historic cities, friendly locals, gorgeous food, not overrun by tourists
- Cons:English is not so common, but you`ll get through; industrial outskirts of Taranto and Bari
- In a nutshell:I miss the great food !
The easternmost point of Italy - marked by a beacon which is not easy to spot from the coast road. It is a nice view,... more travel advice
Egnazia is an archaeological site, an ancient roman town destroyed by Germanic invaders during the late roman empire.... more travel advice
