Perfect places to escape for something less frenetic and crowded!


Not to mention the "stars" of the area: food, wine and olive oil.

Bari: the capital of Puglia is big town with trendier inclinations, in contrast to the narrow, cobbled streets of the old town.
In between the Valle d'Itria: Alberobello known worldwide for its "Trulli" (Unesco World Heritage), will make you feel like in a fairy tale. . . as well as the countryside hosting amazing ancient olive trees. Then Polignano a Mare, to discover its wonderful "terraces" overhanging on the sea.
Last but not least, Matera (Unesco World Heritage)
Almost abandoned only 20 years ago, Matera is now considered one of the top italian destinations, thanks to its unique landscape made of caves and ancient house dwellings, the "Sassi"
Castel del Monte, ". . . a unique piece of medieval architecture", and Trani with its Cathedral by the sea.
