Apulia is a region in Southern Italy bordering the Adriatic Sea to the east, the Ionian Sea. Puglia’s coastline is longer than that of any other mainland Italian region!
Rich in churches and palaces, hidden piazzas and winding alleyways and trattorias, Puglia’s towns are a highlight of a visit to the region and reason to entice you away from the endless coastline.
In some towns you can even combine visits to cathedrals and castles with dips in the sea just steps from the historic centre. Puglia is home to two national parks, the Alta Murgia National Park and Gargano National Park.
