Puglia is a hidden gem that is only being discovered over the past 10 to 15 years. The province is the food bowl of Italy and it is the largest olive producer in Italy. If you enjoy sun, excellent fresh food, culture and architecture this is the ideal holiday destination for you.
Alberobello town is an Unesco heritage site famous for its concentration of 1400 trulli clustered together forming narrow cobbled streets with many excellent bars restaurants and shops selling local handicrafts. There are many Italian restaurants serving fresh local produce and to suit all budgets.
I hear you say what is a Trullo, a Trullo is a round stone building with conical roofs being dry wall construction without mortar dating back to the 14th century. As the story goes this type of construction allowed for the homes to be dismantled in a hurry in order to evade taxes on new settlements under the Kingdom of Naples and certainly a good way to deter unruly lords.
Whilst in Puglia be sure to explore the Itria valley to visit the old town in Locorotondo, Baroque architecture in Martina Franca, white city of Ostuni, to name a few. You are also well placed for a day trip to the beach on either the Adriatic or Ionian coastline
