    In 2016 the Apulia region was chosen by 3.7 million tourists for their holidays, with numbers exceeding 14 million for an average of four-night stay. The number of foreign tourists has increased, with 16% increase in arrivals and 12% in attendance, with an international growth rate close to 23%. Foreign tourists visiting Apulia are predominantly from United Kingdom, US, France and Germany. 

    The queen of the region is Salento, Gallipoli in the lead with 2 millions guests, but it is not the only one. Overcoming renowned locations such as Trapani, Mykonos and Amsterdam, Brindisi went from 14th to 10th place in the "Summer Trends 2017" of Edreams, a famous online travel agency, officially entering the top 10 of the summer destinations preferred by Italian and European vacationers in 2017. Unspoiled beaches, with coves and protected areas, and the affordability of the offer are the basis of so much success.
