Puglia: Discover a New Place Under the Italian Sun
Puglia (Apulia), Italy
May 7-15, 2016
Come and discover this beautiful land between two seas. Puglia is unspoiled, with endless ancient olive groves and vineyards, and small Medieval towns that are UNESCO world heritage sites. Come explore its cone-roofed trulli and white sand beaches with me this spring. Puglia is off the beaten path for now, but it won’t be for long—Wine Enthusiast named it one of its Top 10 Wine Regions of the World for 2013 and National Geographic included it in its “Best Trips 2014.”
