PUGLIA IN WINTER, TOO
Are you looking for a reason to visit Puglia in winter, too?
Puglia is a land for summer holidays, par excellence. Its sea, its countryside and its architecture. Everything is reminiscent of sunny landscapes. It is difficult to think about this land as a place to live in even during winter, while being covered by snow. Yet, our winter is characterized by wine, local food, red vineyards, green wheat fields, the “Leccese” stones of Salento’s cathedrals, the octagonal view of Castel Del Monte courtyard and the pink flowers of almond trees in February. In the evocative alleys of old town centres, you will not bump into the summer crowds and in this period you can enjoy the most authentic details and beauty ever.
If you think that Puglia is a synonym of good food, you cannot miss traditional specialties; home-made cavatelli (a kind of pasta) with turnip tops, stale bread balls and new oil to match with hot bread.
Even in winter, Puglia reminds of sun and where everything seems asleep, it is trembling instead. Red leaves and naked vines are not sleeping; they are getting ready to bring out their best.
