Blue seas, golden wheat fields & white beehive houses
Apulia is the unspoilt heel of Italy, where the pace of life is slow, the sea is always nearby & the land full of extraordinary colours: an undulating plateau of rich, red earth with dark green ancient pine-forested hillsides and light green olive groves. As an ancient strategic gateway into Europe, the Romans, the Greeks & the Normans all left their mark with diverse architectural styles & countless ornate churches - see Castel del Monte with its Arabic & Gothic influences & Basilica di San Nicola, one of Europe’s finest Norman churches. Enjoy the pretty Trulli beehive houses in Alberobello or just forget the culture & head to the coast. Build sandcastles on the white sandy beaches & let children splash about in the clear shallow sea. Have fun in the Ippocampo water park or marvel at the stalagmites & stalactites in the underground caves of Grotte di Castellana.
