Puglia, the ancient Apulia, forms the heel of Italy's boot, and stretches about 300 kilometers from north to south. The lengthy coastline stretches down the Adriatic and round to the Gulf of Taranto in the Ionian Sea.

Puglia's sandy beaches have long made it an attractive holiday destination for northern Italians, but it remains largely unspoilt.

The south is characterised by a rich but thirsty farmland given over mostly to olives, vines, cherries and almonds. The central area includes the "Murge", areas of limestone heathland often punctuated by steep and dramatic ravines.
