Puglia - The enchanting heel of Italy
Enchanting landscapes, historic villages and dreamy beaches: the "heel" of the Italian boot has something to offer for everyone. Puglia, Italy's easternmost region, stretches 800 kilo-metres of high coastline towards the Adriatic Sea. Here, nature begins its transformation from the gentle hilly landscapes of northern Italy to a typically Mediterranean scenery that resembles Greece more than Tuscany or Lombardy.
Bizarre cliffs, grottos and sinkholes alternate with golden sandy beaches. Travellers will not only find varied landscapes in Puglia, but also a cultural heritage that is no less impressive. Bari, the capital of the region, and also many smaller towns such as Lecce, Brindisi or Ostuni have many exciting attractions to offer. Puglia is a real treasure trove for anyone who enjoys nature and culture in equal measure.
