REGION

Situated in the south-eastern fern of Italy, Apulia is a unique region for its rich historical, cultural and geographical heritage. Located in a strategic position in the heart of the Mediterranean, it boasts a multitude of landscapes and traditions that make it the ideal place for an unforgettable trip. The two seas that embrace it, the Ionian and the Adriatic, shape a varied coastline with high cliffs and golden beaches, while the hinterland is dominated by unquestioned olive groves and vineyards, stretching as far as the eye can see.

The land of Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Normans, Swabians and Angevins, Apulia is also a chest of artistic and architectural treasures, with three UNESCO sites: Castel del Monte, the mysterious fortress of Emperor Frederick II near Andria; the trulli of Alberobello, characteristic dry stone huts, unique in the world; the Sanctuary of San Michele Arcangelo in Monte Sant'Angelo, a masterpiece of medieval art and an international pilgrimage destination.

In Apulia, the past embraces contemporaneity, preserving ancient popular and religious traditions, and food and wine is an explosion of flavours, thanks to genuine local ingredients, such as the excellent extra virgin olive oil and fine wines that contribute to improve the quality of life.

An extraordinary land that makes feel at home all those who decide to spend a holiday dedicated to relax and good food.
