Puglia tailor-made holidays
At the boot of Italy, Puglia has the country's longest coastline where the Adriatic and Ionian Seas meet, but it is so much more. A countryside of legendary foodstuffs, where cuisine is all-important, the landscape is one of sun-bleached hills, silver olive groves, hilltop and coastal towns. Apulia as it's also known is also one of the Italy's richest in terms of archeological sites. Sail the beautiful Ionian Coast, explore the hidden villages of the Daunia Mountains, cross the enchanting fields of the Valle D'Itria, discover the Romanesque architecture of imperial Apulia, discover the stone architecture of the Murgia Barese and the extraordinary Baroque art in Salento.
