Puglia and Salento the heel of Italy’s boot

Puglia and Salento the heel of Italy’s boot, nestled between the Adriatic and Ionian seas, lies the captivating region of Puglia, also known as the ‘Heel of the Italy’s boot’. For centuries this stretch of land has been the gateway to the East and has been home to numerous civilizations, including Greeks, Romans, Spanish and Turks, who have left a deep mark in the architecture, food and local dialects.

Puglia will surprise you with its picturesque landscape, ancient hilltop townsemerald waters, and lush farmlands dotted by endless groves of silvery-gray olive trees, low drystone walls hugging agricultural plots the size of throw-rugs. Here you’ll find the people welcoming and down-to-earth. The cuisine fresh, rustic and satisfying, with simple, tasty dishes such “orecchiette” pasta served with a sauce of turnip-tops or fresh tomato and sheep’s ricotta-cheese, and “burrata” (soft mozzarella and cream cheese).
