The region of Puglia, or the heel of Italy, is another amazing southern Italian region, just like its next-door neighbor Basilicata. Characterized by miles and miles of beautiful beaches and little fisherman villages, it is also the home of the famous trulli dwellings – ancient white-washed mushroom-shaped huts – the white city of Ostuni, the baroque masterpiece that is Lecce and a myriad of other enchanting little towns, with their white-washed façades and cobblestone alleys. You would also be hard-pressed to find better food or wine – from cheeses, homemade pastas and cured meats, to the delectable Primitivo wine…truly a food lover’s paradise.
