FALL IN LOVE WITH PUGLIA: 5 IDEAS FOR A ROMANTIC HOLIDAY
Puglia, together with Sicily and Tuscany, is actually one the most wanted holiday destination in Italy.
Its marvellous sea, the trendy resorts, its stunning countryside and typical Mediterranean landscapes make this region very popular.
One of the top requested holidays for couples is Puglia, since its charm, tastes and colors create a very relaxing surrounding for romantic holidays.
So let's see which places to visit when it comes to plan a romantic holiday with your partner:
1. TRULLI TYPICAL HOUSES IN ALBEROBELLO
Alberobello in an ancient village made World Heritage in 1996. Its main feature is that is full of Trulli, typical conical shaped houses and attraction for many tourists that just love to stroll by these nice white houses. Here, walking by the alleys you can find very nice little shops and restaurants.
2. WHITE ROCKS IN OSTUNI
The Itria Valley is renowned for a perfect slow-life tour. From relaxing countryside full of olive trees to calming white small buildings and dry walls, here you can have slow tours through the alleys, get lost in the narrow streets and just fall in love with this beauty.
We highly recommend Locorotondo, Cisternino and the white stunning hamlet of Ostuni.
3. BAROQUE STYLE IN LECCE & SALENTO
Salento is a region of south Puglia famous for its white sandy beaches, "carribean" crystal-clear water, nice typical foods and engaging ancient dances performed by girls and boys during summer time.
Lecce is also the town of Baroque, a typical architectural style that you can see among the streets, courts, churches and piazza (squares). After a morning stroll in the town you can reach the coast (Melendugno and Otranto) and the Ionic coast (Porto Ceasero and Gallipoli) ending up with a visit to the misterious early Christian monuments as dolmens, churches and underground oil mills (Giurdignano).
4. POLIGNANO A MARE
Polignano owns an ancient story of Arabs, Byzantine and Normans and you can see among the streets and along the coast all these cultural traces.
A plunge from the cliff could be also a good idea!
5. BLUE WATERS IN SANTA MARIA DI LEUCA
Santa Maria di Leuca is one of the most visited spots of Puglia. It is located at the bottom of the "heel" of Italy, in the very south of Puglia.
Here you can find all the stunning spots for a sea diving, since the water is one of the most precious elements you can touch and admire.
