  • Puglia

    by Anthony Parente
    Puglia is probably one of the easiest regions to find on the map, because it contains the heel of Italy's boot shaped configuration. The region ranks 7th out of 20 regions in both population and land area. Puglia is surrounded by the regions of Basilicata and Campania to the west, the region of Molise to the north, the Adriatic Sea to the east, and the Ionian Sea to the south west. The region is divided into five provinces: Bari, which is the regional capital as well as one of the largest cities located in Southern Italy, Brindisi, Foggia, Lecce, and Taranto all of which contain 258 comunes. The region also includes two island groups. North of Gargano you will find the islands of Tremiti and in the Gulf of Taranto are the islands of Cheradi.

    The region for the most part is relatively flat and it is an ideal place for cycling. The climate is hot and dry, which is typical of Mediterranean weather. Its fertile land allows the region to produce more wine than any other region in Italy and it is among Italy's main olive oil producers. With nearly three quarters of the region surrounded by water, Puglia is an excellent place for tourist to sunbathe on the beautiful sandy beaches. It also allows Puglia to rank as one of the highest regions in Italy for total fish harvest.

    There is much to learn about the region of Puglia. From its vast history to its various traditions and customs this guide will help you uncover all the charm and beauty that this region has to offer.
