APULIA, THE ESSENCE OF ITALY
The incredible heel of the boot
The Apulia region is the heel of the Italian "boot". It is famous for its singular whitewashed villages, cave dwellings, trullis with conical roofs, and magnificent old farms not to mention its coastlines graced with fortifications, churches, and cathedrals.
Bathed by the Adriatic and the Ionian Sea, the shore is a succession of coves and beaches of fine sand whose waters are surprisingly transparent.
Religious processions, carnivals, and festivals punctuate the year with lively popular gatherings.
