Experience a multitude of emotions in a region of overwhelming beauty, blessed by nature and full of history. Enjoy the countryside and imposing castles including noble palaces and ancient cathedrals, olive groves, old stone trulliand white baroque buildings, stunning caves and historic masserie farmhouses.

 (or Apulia) is a land of flavours and fragrances where bakers, dairymen and farmers turn fruits of the land into products and regional dishes that owe their rich tastes and smells to their simplicity and age old traditions.

The characteristic ‘trulli’, rural conical whitewashed stone structures surmounted by pagan or religious symbols, are scattered among olive groves and prickly pear cacti in and around Alberobello.

Ostuni, known as “the white fortress”, with its whitewashed houses, famous cathedral and sea breezes sweeping throughout its steeps inclines and sculpted portals, and Lecce, magnificant historic Baroque city, are places to visit and marvel at.
