Please note our writer visited Puglia prior to the coronavirus pandemic
Puglia, an olive-grove-swept region that takes the form of Italy’s long, narrow heel, is divided into three seas: the Gulf of Taranto; the wild, green Adriatic; and the glassy-blue Ionian. It’s half-a-thousand miles of coastline drenched in millennia of history. Between its shores are dramatic ravines scored with Stone Age cave-settlements, Greek-style whitewashed hill towns, theatrical Baroque cities, and Unesco-listed sights like the fortress-citadel Castel del Monte and Alberobello – a fairy-tale of cone-topped trulli. Amidst all of this, the wanderer will find heartfelt hospitality in ‘scattered hotels’, b&bs and guesthouses with bucketfuls of character. Here’s our pick of the best bed and breakfasts in Puglia.
