Situated in Southern Italy, Puglia remains well off the beaten path for visitors to this famous peninsula, and this 9-day tour of Puglia aims to capitalize on this by leading you to all the main attractions as well as ensuring an exclusive feel throughout its entirety. From Savelletri to Lecce, this rural region of Italy will come to life through visits to olive groves, picturesque beaches, and charming city centers.
Savelletri – Your Puglian Adventure
Puglia is one of Italy's undiscovered treasures and remains far from the bustle of the busy cities of Rome and Florence; however, Puglia still offers visitors warm hospitality and some of the most stunning coastlines in the country.
