One of the lesser-known regions of the country, Puglia, also known as Apulia, is situated in the south, or ‘heel’, of Italy. Explore the port city of Bari, visit the Unesco world heritage site of Alberobello, or just relax on the long stretches of golden sandy beaches of the Adriatic. With baroque towns, whitewashed trulli houses, orchards and olive groves to visit, we recommend hiring a car and exploring at your own pace.
