Puglia is often called the "Garden of Italy" or the "Bread basket of Italy" as the region produces much of the Olive Oil and wheat used in the country. Puglia is also now becoming recognised as a producer of fine wines. It has the longest coastline in Italy and is blessed with over 300 days of sunshine each year, giving the tourist season that little bit extra.
Castellana Grotte is famous for its Caves. This spectacular network of caves with Stalagmites and Stalatites have been carved out by underground streams over many centuries. Castellana Grotte is also a buzzing little country town andbecause the caves are on the edge of town it means that in high season it is not packed with day trippers.
The UNESCO World Heritage town of Alberobello is the next town along and is famous for the Trulli that are unique to Puglia and can be seen dotted around the coutryside. There are a number of noted towns in the region all worth visiting for their beautiful Historic centres and these are Locorotondo. Martina Franca, Cisternino and Ostuni.
