Puglia is a southern Italy lovely region, well known abroad with the name of Apulia, famous for its typical “trulloes” and involving “pizzica dance“.
People coming for first time in Italy from abroad usually look on the web for the most famous italian tourist destinations, like Rome and Florence…but there at least 20 valid reasons to consider Puglia as a complementary extension for a vacation or as first choise for a second italian journey.
