It’s just a complete contradiction. It reminds you of whitewashed coastal villages of Greece but it’s distinctly Italian. There’s an island-like easiness but this is part of the mainland. You’ll ride along the deep blue waters of the Adriatic Sea that are still one moment and dramatic the next. The people are quiet and simple but the foods and the flavors are explosive and complex. Authentic farmhouses that have been transformed into exquisite inns. Every turn on your adventure will feel familiar and foreign at the same time. Welcome to Puglia, Italy.
