Puglia, a lovely coastal region in southern Italy, is home to lavish olive tree groves, pristine towns painted white, and mediaeval architecture. The capital, Bari, is lively and intriguing, suitable for a memorable holiday with friends and family. The Mediterranean coastline beckons while you can visit the ancient farmlands, churches, and the lovely town of Lecce.
