Friends, a tricky question: which of the areas is "on the heels of Italy?"
Many have already spied on the Internet))) That's right, Apulia, I'll tell you about it in this article!
A little geography, so that you understand: Puglia borders on Molise, in the west with Basilicato and Campania, its shores are washed by the Adriatic Sea in the east, and the Ionian in the Southwest. It has six provinces: Bari, Lecce, Taranto, Foggia, Barletta - Andria Trani and Brindisi.
What is Puglia interesting for? First of all, these are seaports and tourism. It's great to relax here: wonderful beaches, lush vegetation, red clay soil and crimson sunsets, all in one place! I have not yet mentioned the history, sights and its hospitable inhabitants.
Where the tourist rushes to the capital of Bari. This is a place of pilgrimage, because here is the Basilica of St. Nicholas and the Church of St. Sabina. And you should also visit the beautiful Hohenstaufen castle, lovers of archaeological excavations - the Archaeological Museum. There are several other equally interesting museums and exhibitions.
For romantics, I advise you to wander through the old streets of Bari with its beautiful churches.
I have not forgotten, but simply left for "sweet". The visiting card of Puglia is the small but super interesting town of Alberobello and its famous trulli houses, included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Puglia is a must for travel. Include this area in your itinerary!
