Experience a multitude of emotions in a region of overwhelming beauty, blessed by nature and full of history.
Enjoy the pleasant countryside and imposing castles, including noble palaces and ancient cathedrals, olive groves, old stone “Trulli” and white baroque buildings, stunning caves and historic Masserie farmhouses. Apulia is also a land of flavours and fragrances where bakers, dairymen and farmers turn fruits into products that owe their rich flavours and fragrances to their simplicity, and a place with a world-famous winemaking tradition as well.
