Puglia and Basilicata

One of the lesser known but incredible destinations of Italy can be found in the heel of Italy’s boot. Puglia is renowned as a site for archeological findings as well as for its cuisine and scenic beauty, its castles, cathedrals and pristine beaches found among the little towns and villages.
