Puglia, named after the ancient Roman Apulia, is this region of the "heel of the Italian boot", with an area of nearly 20,000 km2, in the extreme southeast of the territory. Its 800 km of coastline with splendid coves and beaches - Adriatic Sea in the east and Ionian Sea in the south - as well as its mild climate make it a tourist destination of prime importance both nationally and internationally, so that in the summer the area is quickly saturated. The tourist guide of Puglia proposes to explore its six provinces - Bari, Foggia, Lecce, Brindisi, Taranto and Barletta-Andria-Trani - highlighting its various (and countless!) assets, starting with the natural parks of Gargano and Alta Murgia, but also the caves of Castellana and the marine reserves of the Tremiti and Torre Guaceto islands. It is impossible to visit Puglia without passing through its capital, Bari, a dynamic port city and student city with a breathtaking architectural heritage, a mosaic of Orthodox churches, basilicas and cathedrals, but also through Lecce, the "Florence of the South" with its impressive Baroque architecture. The trulli of Alberobello or Locorotondo, these stone houses with conical roofs inspired by Byzantine, Norman and Aragonese traditions so typical of the region, are also worth seeing. Popular traditions, simple and robust cuisine, a warm welcome and sumptuous landscapes enamelled with the eternal olive and oleander trees are all particularities of Puglia that will seduce the traveller. Benvenuto in Puglia!
