Apulia (Puglia) region in Italy forms the eastern most part of the peninsula and has a long coastline, facing the Ionian and the Adriatic Seas.
Crystal blue sea, green countryside, intense red terrain, golden sunsets.... from Porto Cesareo to Peschici, from Bari to Taranto, from Vieste to Brindisi, from Otranto to the Tremiti Islands, you can experience a multitude of emotions while visiting Apulia all year round.
