Carovigno is a small unspoilt part of Puglia, on the outskirts the town is surrounded by olive groves, and is only a short distance from the Adriatic Coast. The centre has many fantastic bars and restaurants, and boasts a Michelin Star Restaurant. Well worth a visit is the Santuario della Madonna del Belvedere, which is a sanctuary. Please note suitable clothing is required to enter the church, as you will not be permitted to enter if your shoulders are not covered and you are wearing beach wear. Beaches are clean with a Nature reserve Torre Guaceto blissfully free from development, with its rugged shores is a protected area, and allows its visitors to enjoy and escape from the over developed beach resorts. There are plenty of opportunities to observe plant and animal species usually scarce in this part of the world. A mini shuttle service runs from the car parks, but to find your spot on the beach, there may be some walking involved. Brindisi known as the gateway to the East, Brindisi has flourished for thousands of years a s the most eastern port of the Italian Peninsular. This city marked the end of the Via Appia in Roman times, and the columns that signaled its entrance can still be seen at the top of a grand flight of stone steps overlooking the port. Here was the setting for the epic sea battle between Caesar and Pomey and the meeting place for Mark Anthony & Octavius when they carved up the empire. The nicest areas are along the waterfront of the old town, where a long row of stylish bars and restaurants line the promenade. There is also an attractive pedestrian shopping area and a number of interesting sites such as the Castle of Federico 11, the Aragonese Castle and the 12th century Romanesque Cathedral. Alberobello has been made a UNESCO World Heritage site for its unusual districts of trulli, and conical-roofed houses which are all painted white, built from local limestone, with dry-stone walls. They are fairytale like huts built in the 14th Century. There are a good number of restaurants, but to enjoy the local cuisine, look for something which is away from the tourist traps. Lecce is a Baroque City, it has a historic centre full of cherubs, and baroque masterpeices. Sometimes described as the ‘Florence of the South’ Lecce’s history goes back a long way - you can still see the ruins of a Roman Threatre and Amphitheatre. Things to see in Lecce – (Centro Storico) which you can spend a day or two exploring picturesque little lanes. The Basilica di Santa Croce has a fantastical façade, with ornamental strange beasts and allegories. The town has two main focal points: Piazza Sant’Oronzo and Piazza del Duomo. There is also a little tourist ‘train’ which stops at various points of interest. It’s worth visiting the Roman theatre and its little museum in the centre of Lecce (Museo Teatro Romano). Ostuni is one of the most stunning cities in southern Italy famous for the dazzling effect of its whitewashed houses. In the Church of San Vito Martire there are the remains of a young woman now named ‘Delia’. The young 20 year old pregnant woman had been buried in a hole in a grotto 25,000 years ago. Ostuni boasts many restaurants with traditional Pugliese cuisine, with roast and grilled meat and tasty tangy pasta dishes to suit every palate. Ostuni has also one of the oldest Franciscan convents dating back to 1304. The Cathedral is located on the highest point of the city, which was built between 1435 and 1495, and has a beautiful Gothic facade. Far away you will see the white town perched on a hill, crowned by the cathedral with its colorful dome. The town of Ostuni is surrounded by a medieval fortress wall, and as you meander through the streets, you may stumble upon hidden cafe bars and restaraunts. Definitely worth visiting at night, as there is a buzz of excitement, and people sipping coffee and drinking Spritz - it definitely has a cosmopolitan feel.
