The Puglia region has a proud traditional style, with the emphasis more on agriculture than the heavy industries found elsewhere – well over half of the olive oil produced in Italy comes from this area, plus you will find some of the very best wines. It has a rugged charm that will appeal to the lovers of the real Italy wanting to escape the British influence of Tuscany. Flying time from UK to Bari or Brindisi Airport will be just under 3 hours.
