The Itria Valley
Located halfway between Bari and Brindisi, the Itria Valley includes Alberobello, Ostuni, Ceglie Messapica and Martina Franca. The trulli, the farms and the rural landscape in general characterize this area, very rich in the local stone that is used to build the traditional dry stone walls and, precisely, the picturesque trulli.
Polignano a Mare
The town that was the birthplace of Domenico Modugno, Polignano is by far the most famous Apulian tourist destination in the world. Lama Monachile, the Sea Caves including Grotta Palazzese and the typical old town are just some of the points of interest that the town offers.
Known as the “white city”, Ostuni is a town in the province of Brindisi that is so called because of the typical colour of its houses. Located between Monticelli, Rosa Marina and Costa Merlata, not far from Ostuni, you can find sandy or rocky coves with crystal clear water.
The Apulian Capital of Baroque, Lecce is a real architectural masterpiece. Walking through the streets of the city’s historic centre you can easily get lost among the numerous craft shops, bars and cafés, always ready to welcome tourists. A true Apulian historic village.
2019 European Capital of Culture, Matera is the City of the Sassi (lit. Rocks), which are included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites. Its territory has preserved important vestiges of human settlements dating from the Paleolithic up to our days.
