Puglia has attracted more than its fair share of travel magazine column inches in the last couple of years, yet still remains relatively untouched and well worth exploring. Packed full of ancient towns, dramatic Romanesque churches, dreamy windswept beaches and wild open plains, Puglia (the heel of Italy’s boot) is well worth a visit on a trip to Italy. This southern region is enclosed by the Adriatic Sea on one side and the Ionian Sea on the other and is populated by plenty of whitewashed hill towns that are perfectly situated to take in the stunning sea views. On your Puglia holidays, travel through
the vast plains of Tavoliere di Puglia in the north and see the iconic beehive shaped dry stone trulli houses in the picturesque, UNESCO World Heritage Site of Alberobello. Take a tour of the charming cities of Otranto, Leuca, Bari and Lecce and feel like you’ve stepped back in time on a visit to the ancient fortified hill town of Matera, a place so ancient in look and feel it was used to film several scenes of Mel Gibson's 'The Passion of the Christ.'

From start to finish the trip was exceptional and Harriet and the staff at Original Travel had everything laid out perfectly in advance so traveling from city to city was seamless. In addition the services provided by your concierges in each area were outstanding. The app is great and we used it constantly to keep up with our daily schedule. Between the tours and transfers between cities the app was an invaluable resource.
