If you’re after a holiday with variety, Puglia could be the place for you. This sunny, southerly region (which forms the heel of Italy’s boot) has burst onto the tourism scene over the past few years, enticing travellers with its storybook villages, architecturally rich cities, and beautiful beaches and countryside.
Must-visit Puglia destinations include Alberobello, famous for its spiky-roofed trulli houses; the Valle d’Itria, with its endless olive groves and gleaming whitewashed towns; Lecce, home to an array of baroque buildings; and vibrant Bari, a port city with a classically Italian old town (look out for mammas chatting as they roll fresh orecchiette pasta in the tiny lanes).
The neighbouring region of Basilicata is easily reached, too. The big name here is Matera – 2019’s European Capital of Culture. Built on a steep hillside, its ancient neighbourhoods of cave houses and churches are a real pleasure to explore.
