Apulia, the spur of the Italian Boot, has been selected by HuffPost as one of the fifteen world’s destinations to visit and to savour before they will become famous and crowded. We fully agree that this enchanting region that spreads lengthwise along the sea, with its marvelous beaches that will delight every traveler, lush olive grows and vineyards producing excellent wines, rich cultural heritage of Greek, Roman, Saracen and Spanish colonization and invasions, and beautiful landscapes which vary from the limestone massif of Gargano Promontory ( the “spur” of the peninsula) and the Neapolitan Apennines, to rolling plains and gentle uplands on the south, is really worth a trip. It is certainly one of the most interesting MICE destinations. Apulia is famous for its characteristic limestone dwellings with conical roofs and typical, ancient “ masseria” walled farmhouses, many of them today turned into original, beautiful, de charme hotels with excellent meeting and conference facilities and very special milieu.
