This confirmed my view that the Italians have been trying to keep this lovely area a secret – especially with all the google searches asking is Puglia worth visiting – well no longer.
If you’re looking for where to stay in Puglia as a base here it is. Borgo Egnazia is not cheap – but it’s not ridiculous.
This gorgeous white city is set on a hilltop only 8km from the sea and one of the key Puglia destinations. It was raining when we visited but still very cute.
There are so many things to do in Puglia – and lovely UNESCO World Heritage Site Alberobello – which is also very fun to say – is one of Puglia’s Trulli towns.
There are some Puglia beaches. Savelletri is the quintessential seaside town with sandy beaches.
So Bari Italy is a bit of an odd one. It is not the cute and atmospheric small Italian town that generally feature in this area as key for tourists.
