The Puglia/Molise region

Puglia - famous for its trulli but less well-known by tourists for its fantastic seas in the Salento area. Visit some of the cleanest beaches in Italy or spend time discovering Byzantine ruins. Learn about the world-famous cathedral of Otranto and visit the bone crypt dedicated to the martyrs of Otranto. Find out why the small fishing port of Gallipoli is now visited by the rich and famous in Italy. Or simply taste some rustic cuisine, especially the famous "little ears" (orrecchiette pasta).

Summer starts heating up in May and continues through to September-October. A very mild climate throughout the year.


In the summer months every village will have its "festa". These are well worth visiting as you can sample local specialities (food and drink), often free of charge, followed by spectacular firework displays. Then of course there is the famous "tarantella" dance, an intriguing traditional dance accompanied by tambourines and said to reflect the madness coming from spider (tarantula) bites.

Everywhere you turn there is a church worth visiting or an ancient monument. Lecce is not to be missed - famous for being the Florence of the South with its stunning baroque architecture.
