Nestled deep within the south region of Puglia, Italy, is the tiny city of Alberobello. It truly gives a feeling of the location in the south of Puglia, Italy, with its authentic, small-town feel, yet it is also ancient and gorgeous. Alberobello best known for it's Truli's the white washed conical style buildings that are scattered throughout the village. This is Puglia Southern Italy's lesser traveled region that many tourist never see or visit. This is Puglia Southern Italy's Authentic Small Towns.
Puglia also has about 500 miles of breathtaking coastline, lapped by both the Ionian and Adriatic Seas; plenty of seafood, as well as endless groves of olive trees and rock-walled orchards (Puglia is Italy's breadbasket, producing more olive oil, wine, and durum wheat than any other region).
Perfectly situated in the Mediterranean, with more than 500 miles of coastline, and the longest region of Italy's mainland, Puglia is squeezed between the Adriatic and Ionian Seas.
The heel of Italy's shoe, Puglia is known for its hilltop towns with white walls, its long, hot summers, its amazing beaches, and it is considered to be one of Europe's best summer destinations for travelers.
One popular city is located at the heel of Italy's boot. Its the small city of Polignano a Mare and it is nestled along the Adriatic coast, one of Italy's prettiest little towns. Built into the cliffs, Polignano a Mare is one of the most scenic towns on the coast, and below Polignano a Mare is a beautiful sandy beach.
Beyond the Baroque town of Lecce is the Salento peninsula, known for its good beaches and scenic towns.
The setting alone is enough to make Ostuni one of the most amazing cities of Southern Italy. The parade of hillforts, castles, and huge cathedrals; the amazing people, so welcoming, charming, and helpful; and, of course, the amazing cuisine (some have gone as far as saying that Puglia has Italy's best food, which is an impressive claim in a country that is internationally celebrated for its cooking).
Italy's eastern coastline has plenty of resort towns, but also many cool places to see and hidden gems. While I only shared some of the prettiest towns in Italy's Southern Region of Puglia, there are many more towns that you should check out that we have yet to visit, but are hoping to.
