What We Love About Puglia

If you look at Italy on a globe or world map, you’ll notice that the country is shaped like a boot. Puglia is the land that comprises the boot’s heel. This region is famous for its hill towns and their whitewashed architecture. Make your way to its lively capital, Bari, where you’ll find well-preserved structures like the Basilica of Saint Nicholas, the ancient Cathedral of Saint Sabinus, and the Swabian Castle. It’s also a university town, so you’ll be able to witness student life as you explore it. You can also visit Lecce to admire its baroque architecture and explore its markets to sample local delicacies, or wander the streets of Alberobello and marvel at its numerous stone huts.
