Tailor-made Apulia Travel Experiences

Pristine Natural Beauty in the Italian Boot

The province Apulia, the so called heel of the Italian boot, is traded as an insider's destination for a romantic Italy holiday. Explore the quiet, stunningly beautiful and laid back region at you leisure! Apulia boasts pristine nature, 300 days of sunshine every year and approximately 800 kilometres of coastline. In short, Apulia has everything for a supremely relaxing stay in the far South. The coastline has many faces: Secluded bays protected by rough rocks alternate with wonderful sand beaches and water glittering and shining in almost Caribbean splendour. Whether you prefer to spend a day with just the sun on your face and a snooze on the warm sand or much rather be out and about doing water sports, it is up to you. However, Apulia reveals many more treasures as soon as you turn you attention inland. The hinterland will appeal especially to those in search of pristine nature and the typical, quaint Italian flair. The plains are lush and green, perfect for growing wheat. Rolling hills rise out of the plains with century old olive orchards framing ancient villages and white-washed buildings. Take your time and go slow. Apulia is perfect for a spot of daydreaming, gaze resting on the surrounding beauty. Apulia's great diversity is also reflected in its excellent cuisine. The pantry is filled with every kind of fish and seafood. Moreover, the region has its own pasta varieties like the Orecchiette, shaped like an ear, and the delicious Altamura Bread. One of Apulia's most noteworthy sightseeing attractions is the Zona dei Trulli. The Apulian Trullis are small, circular stone buildings with peculiar cone-shaped roofs. They are found predominantly in a 1000 square kilometres region between Ostuni and Martina Franca in the heart of Apulia. The Trulli town Alberobello in the Itria Valley has been awarded the great honour of a listing as an UNESCO world heritage site. More than 1000 Trulli buildings create an intriguing ambience not found anywhere else. Fifteen kilometres south-west of the harbour city Monopoli is the Castellana Grotte, a vast drip stone cave system. The guided tours take you deep into the wonder world of millennia old stalactites and stalagmites. And then, of course, there are the historic monuments. First and foremost the Castel del Monte – a sensational sight! Without doubt, the Castel del Monte is one of Apulia's most awe-inspiring attractions and certainly one of Italy's most notable castles. Castel del Monte was build by Kaiser Friedrich II., who spared no expenses. The result is an uncommon octagonal building with romantic courtyards and eight mighty towers overlooking the scenery. On a tour of Apulia, countless historic places, harbour towns and fishing villages provide opportunities to hit the brakes. With so much to see, time becomes a scarce commodity but Bari, Brindisi, Lecce and Taranto certainly deserve a stop. And the weather is nearly always perfect: mild and sunny – ideal not just for water sports. In addition to sightseeing and water sports, golf has become an increasingly popular activity in Apulia. A number of challenging golf courses are located in the vicinity of the beach commanding spectacular views. Talk to our experienced team of INTOSOL travel consultants.
