Its almost impossible to list all the beautiful places in Puglia. You have two airport to choose from. Bari is the main gateway to Puglia (the other airport is at Brindisi further south) and the nearby Valle d’Itria, a rustic valley of olive trees, vineyards, and hill towns, is one of the most popular destinations in the region, known for its iconic trulli, circular stone huts found dotted around the countryside. Alberobello is another town (its quite touristy thou), but it’s such a unique and enchanting place (now also UNESCO) that it’s worth a few hours. than you have Locorotondo which is a labyrinth of white washed buildings, its quiet streets kept pristine by residents who decorate their balconies and staircases with pink geraniums. There are no major sights but this means it doesn’t get many visitors so it’s a delightful place to enjoy a leisurely lunch and stroll the streets. Ostuni is another maze-like white city on a hilltop just 8km from the Adriatic Sea where you’ll find some of Puglia’s most exclusive resorts. It’s a wonderful town to get lost wandering the alleys, climbing staircases, and dipping under archways; or browse the stalls of local fruit and vegetables at the Saturday market. Lecce (the capital of Salento) in a beautiful treasure plus has some very good shops! Is known for its exuberant baroque architecture in the golden Leccese stone of the area, its churches lavishly decorated with cherubs, gargoyles and griffins, and delicately carved columns and cornices. Otranto it’s just 72 km from Albania and its location has resulted in many invasions, the worst of which was the Turkish siege in 1480 when they destroyed much of the city and tortured and killed its people, but it has a stunning coastal location where you can combine morning visits to churches with an afternoon swimming in the clean turquoise sea. Gallipolli’s old town is on a island connected by a causeway to the mainland. It has a relaxed, elegant vibe, some stunning churches, and a golden curve of sand right in the centre of town, plus many more along the surrounding coast. It was ruled by the Greeks for five centuries between 7th and 2nd century BC, but all signs of their existence were destroyed by the Romans and most of the architecture seen now is from the Middle Ages. ....and there is so many other little towns still unspoiled. There is even a beach called Le Maldive del Salento (Pescoluse) which stretches for 8km. Its attractive dunes creating a natural barrier between the fine white sandy beach and the road, which runs parallel to the coast about 250m inland. I would say one of the best things to do in Puglia is to get to know the rich and delicious culinary & wine tradition, discover the wonderful towns, villages and the most amazing beaches.
