To help you out, we’ve put together 5 tips that could help you to make the most of your Puglian adventure.
Consider what you want from your trip
There’s no doubt that this part of Italy has a lot to offer, which is one of the reasons why it’s become an increasingly popular vacation destination. However, it’s wise to remember that your personal preferences should determine how you spend your time here.
We could suggest the best hiking Puglia Italy has to offer, but if you’re not interested in going on a trek through nature, this might not be the ideal choice. Essentially, if you want to really enjoy your stay, you should think about what would make it special for you.
Take the time to enjoy the Puglian lifestyle
Known for being friendly and welcoming, the Italian way of life is something that appeals to a wide variety of people. The good news is that you can experience it in person during your Puglian tours. Regardless of what you’re planning to see and do when visiting Puglia in 2021, set aside some time to watch the world go by. The peaceful atmosphere is just beautiful, especially for those used to a more industrial way of life.
Introduce your taste buds to the unique flavors of Puglia
You may already know that Italy is home to a wide array of delicious foods, but did you know that Puglia has some of its own unique delicacies? From traditional Puglian meals like handmade orechiette pasta and Pasticciotto (a delicious pastry from Lecce), to regional variants of classic Italian meals; there’s plenty for you to sink your teeth into.
Make the most of the Mediterranean climate
If you’re used to less than perfect weather, you’ll just love the warm and reliable sunshine that Puglia has to offer. Whether you want to spend a day by the coast or just enjoy the beauty of the region with a clear blue sky as a backdrop, there’s no doubt that perfect weather is something that you’ll want to make the most of.
With this in mind, it may be a good idea to plan a trip anytime between May to October (although there’s still a lot to love about the other months; from Easter celebrations, to winter sales).
Plan out your trip before you go
For our last tip, we’d like to advise you to carefully consider each aspect of your vacation. There’s so much to love and explore, and often so little time to actually fit everything in. Whether you’re looking forward to a 4 day tour of Puglia or a 2 week stay, there will be plenty of things that you could do during your visit. To make the most of every second, creating a plan and figuring out the little details ready for when you arrive can be essential.
