The Puglia Area Guide

Things to do

On the southern coast of Italy sits the region known as Puglia, occupying the ‘heel’ of Italy’s boot-shaped land mass. The greatest joy in a visit to Puglia is the feeling that no one else has quite done so yet. Famous throughout Italy for its cooking and wine, a mean feat when you consider the Italian reputation for cuisine, Puglia has managed to remain a non-traditional relocation destination with all the history, beauty and fine food that one would expect from a holiday destination.

Visitors to the region might wish to visit the Castel del Monte, a 13th century fortress built by Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II. Sitting in the middle of the Puglia countryside, this fortress graces more than the hills, occupying a special place in Italian hearts. The Sentiero Airone nature reserve, home of Europe’s largest colony of pink flamingos, is also well worth a visit. A day trip to the Tremiti islands isn’t to be missed, with white sandy beaches, the crystal clear Adriatic Sea and world famous scuba diving. The Basilica di San Nicola is a popular destination, welcoming waves of religious pilgrims every year. However, visitors and locals should tread carefully if called upon to explain to children that the tomb within the church contains the man who inspired Santa Claus!

A 155-mile cycle route throughout the region is under construction. Visitors can enjoy small sections of it, which have been opened up, offering a route to travel and take in the hills of Italy. A visit to the town of Alberobello grants you the chance to see over 1,400 ‘trulli’, traditional homes that resemble upside-down ice-cream cones. Enshrined as a UNESCO world heritage site, the view of these whitewashed houses as the sun sets is an eye-catching, if somewhat odd, spectacle.

Places to eat

Eating in Italy is an experience like no other and Puglia doesn’t disappoint. Diners at Al Trabucco da Mimi, located in Peschici, enjoy a dual encounter with the freshest of fish and a traditional Italian fishing platform. Eaters can even join in on the catch, dining on the fruits of their own labours while sitting on a platform that offers one of the finest ocean sunsets in all of Italy. A visit to Locorotondo should include an evening at the Quanto Basta. With stone floors and wooden tables, the small rustic restaurant has some of the finest traditional pizza in the region, as well as an expansive beer menu. Restaurant Scinua, sitting in Putignano, showcases exquisite local fare, all prepared in-house by the attentive owner, known as GiGi. A lunchtime visit to Pasticceria Gelateria Tari in Ostuni will treat you to an authentic Italian bar and pastry experience, one that often leads to several repeat visits.


As known for its fashion as its food, Puglia does Italy no shame when it comes to shopping. The regional capital of Bari showcases some of the premier international fashion houses, such as Stella McCartney or Paciotti, and weekly markets selling local produce, antiques, regional art, artisanal olive oil and, of course, some of the regions finest wine. With several shopping centres across the city and markets occurring monthly in many of the surrounding towns, there’s a little something for everyone.

Getting there & around

Bus routes link some of Puglia’s towns and cities, with the same applying to a small train network that exists here. Two airports provide access to the region, either the Brindisi airport or Palese at Bari. Car is, perhaps, the best way to travel the region, allowing unhindered exploration and the opportunity to travel at your own accord. Of course, no matter how you choose to travel, or where you end up in Puglia, the food will be fantastic, the view gorgeous, the architecture beautiful and you’ll never quite want to leave.
