Stunning seaside towns, incredible food and an all around relaxed atmosphere are just a few reasons to get your travel plans together for a trip to the Puglia region in southern Italy.
5 cities, 5 incredible experiences as my dad and I traveled through the Apulia Region of Southern Italy. In addition to the food (which alone is reason enough to make the trip) the walking, history, architecture and people make this an adventure to consider for future travel planning.
An 8 hour flight from New York JFK into Rome Leonardo da Vinci airport. A 4 hour train ride southeast into Bari. Another 2 hour train ride further south into Lecce. And a 45 minute cab ride over to Otranto on the Adriatic Sea.
A bit of a trek, but well worth it to explore and eat my way through the Apulia Region of Italy.
