Puglia Vacations

Apulia, also known as Puglia in Italian or Le Puglie in plural form, is a region located in Italy adjacent to Basilicata, Molise and Campania. Apulia is often referred to as “the heel” or “the spur” of Italy’s boot because it lies in the most southeastern area of Italy. Apulia, Italy consists of six provinces: Taranto, Brindisi, Barletta-Andria-Trani, Foggia, Bari and Lecce. Each of these provinces have unique characteristics that attract visitors to Apulia vacations. Bari, the capital of Apulia, is well-known for the Basilica di San Nicola and the Teatro Petruzelli. The Basilica di San Nicola is probably the most famous church in Apulia and appeals to countless sightseers each year. This church has a combination of Romanesque and Puglian styles and a ciborium over the alter that was built in the thirteenth century, making it Apulia, Italy’s oldest ciborium. The Teatro Petruzelli has been described as “one of Italy’s greatest opera houses” and is made up of velvet seats, a huge dome and a cherry-wood stage. The theatre opened its doors in 1903 and has since housed very famous people, including Frank Sinatra, Liza Minnelli and Freddie Mercury.
