Journey Around Italy's Heel: Apulia

Recently ranked by Lonely Planet – along with Basilicata and Calabria – as a 2014 “best value” destination, the region of Apulia in Southern Italy offers beautiful beaches, hilltop towns, ancient sights and fabulous food, yet very few crowds.

We have compiled a list of places to see and things to do to discover the region, from a seven-day wine, spa and golf tour to an active holiday focused on local food and wine to a romantic night in a typical trullo. We also recommend a trip to the wild Gargano peninsula, and a fun tour of Bari on board a Vespa.
