Region of puglia logo

The territory of Puglia (also called Apulia in English), is the easternmost region in Italy, a long, narrow peninsula, bordered by two seas, the Ionian and Adriatic, with the longest coastline in the Italian peninsula. Forming the heel of Italy’s “boot”, Puglia is a region of farmers.

The land is generally flat, with huge swathes of the countryside set aside for agriculture which produces over 40% of Italy’s olive oil. It’s also a huge producer of durum wheat.Puglia is known for its whitewashed hill towns, centuries-old farmland and hundreds of kilometers of Mediterranean coastline. Capital Bari is a vibrant port, while Lecce is known as “Florence of the South” for its baroque architecture. Alberobello and the Itria Valley are home to “trulli,” stone huts with distinctive conical roofs.
