Your holidays in Apulia: all you need to know for your next stay

Apulia is a region in southeastern Italy bordering the Adriatic Sea to the east and the Ionian Sea to the southeast. It boasts outstanding natural landscapes, as well as an inestimable historic-artistic heritage.
Apulia is mostly a plain; its low coast, however, is dramatically offset by the mountainous Gargano Peninsula situated in the province of Foggia, which is also known as "Spur" because of its outstanding location on the Italian boot. Lovely seaside resorts, such as Vieste, Rodi Garganico, Pugno Chiuso and Mattinata, as well as famous religious meccas, such as Monte Sant'Angelo and San Giovanni Rotondo, make Gargano one of the most appreciated holiday destinations in Apulia.

The region boasts a superb 600-kilometre-long coastline; its crystal-clear sea, which provides a rich habitat for marine life, becomes even more beguiling around the Tremiti Islands and the southern Salentine Peninsula, which forms a high "heel" on the "boot" of Italy and comprises the provinces of Brindisi, Lecce and Taranto. This southern area cherishes outstanding natural landscapes dotted with modern urban settlements which perfectly integrate with the surrounding environment, such as Gallipoli, Ostuni, Otranto and Leuca, the southernmost area of the region; not to be missed is the spectacular Gulf of Taranto, which overlooks the Ionian Sea north of Salento.

Apulia underwent different dominations and has been settled since the prehistory: some cities, such as Bari, Brindisi, Andria, Barletta, Trani and Otranto still retain inestimale evidences dating back to the Middle Ages. Not to be missed are Lecce's Baroque architectures and the peculiar buildings of Alberobello and its neighbourhoods, the so-called Trulli, prehistoric buildings which are still inhabited.
Not to be missed are the stalactites and stalagmites of the Caves of Castellana,in the province of Bari, which give visitors the opportunity to enjoy the outstanding natural beauties Apulia cherishes.
