Our guide to Italy

Puglia

Italy’s breathtaking countryside consists of undulating hills and agricultural valleys, plum and cherry orchards and, above all, vineyards. Hire a car to get the most of what the countryside has to offer and explore castles, villages, farmyards and the limestone coastline with long sandy beaches.

Located in the heel of Italy, Puglia is agricultural and rustic with silver olive groves and hilltop and coastal towns. It is a lush, largely flat farming region, with an extensive limestone rock coastline and long sandy beaches. A favorite destination for Italian vacationmakers, Puglia comes alive in the summer time with festivals, concerts and events.

The cuisine here is fantastic with such abundant local vegetables and produce. Olive oil, tomatoes, artichokes, salami, mushrooms, olives and seafood are just some of the produce that make the region's legendary cucina povera. The region is not one of Italy's traditional tourist destinations, but it is becoming increasingly popular as travelers discover the area's varied charms: baroque towns, white-washed trullo houses, olive groves and orchards, blue sea and beaches, plenty of sunshine and excellent cuisine.

The State Department has changed their advice for travelers to Italy to Level 3 (re-consider travel). From 8 March, the Italian authorities extended the area of isolation to cover the whole of the Lombardy region and the provinces of Modena, Parma, Piacenza, Reggio Emilia and Rimini (all in Emilia Romagna); Pesaro e Urbino (in Marche); Venezia and Padova (in Veneto); Asti and Alessandria (in Piemonte). The State Department advice will be regularly reviewed and may be changed depending on how the fast-changing coronavirus situation evolves. Also see our travel information regarding Coronavirus.
