Home to some beautiful sites, from ancient houses to palaces, and the delicious Primitivo di Manduria (a classic full-bodied red wine), there’s certainly a few things that make it worth exploring – both on foot and by vehicle.

Polignano a Mare

Situated in Bari, on the coast of Valle d’Itria, is Polignano a Mare.  A true gem, this destination is home to some of the best beaches in the region, making it an excellent choice for anyone who wants to make the most of the fantastic Mediterranean weather that Puglia is known for.

There’s a coastline nearby too, making it another great place for those who want to enjoy the sunshine.

Why go on a road trip?

With quite a few different options for how you could spend your vacations in Puglia, you might be wondering why it’s worth getting on the road and traveling around instead of participating in Salento wine tours or adventure tours in Gargano.

Well, a driving tour can be perfect for anyone who wants to explore the beauty of Puglia at their own pace, as you can decide what to do, where to go, and when. For example, you might want to experience the best hiking Puglia Italy has to offer, or stop off at some of the Puglian vineyards as you make your way from one location to another.
