67 Photos To Inspire Your Trip To Puglia, Italy 

If you’re looking for somewhere gorgeous to visit for a long weekend, put Puglia on your bucket list. 🙂 It’s whitewashed hill towns, rustic farmhouses and picturesque coastline make it one of the most beautiful  regions of Italy.

If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I recently flew over there for a short but very sweet weekend in the sun with my cousin Grace.

We took books with us as we intended to spend our time relaxing at the hotel and reading, but there were so many beautiful towns to visit that we didn’t read a page.

My no.1 tip would be to rent a car, so you have the flexibility to explore all the gorgeous neighbouring towns and villages. We had 2.5 days there and we squeezed in Cisternino, Ostuni, Martina, Monopoli, Polignano a Mare and of coure Alberbello (a must!). Our favourites were definitely Ostuni & Monopoli.

(Nearest airports are Bari & Brindisi).

Have fun! 🙂

    Gorgeous post!! You really recommend renting a car?! Everywhere I’ve been in Italy has CRAZY roads – windy and tiny and scary. And do you really only need a weekend?!

      Hey Christie. Thank you! I would definitely recommend hiring a car otherwise you will find it hard to get between the towns. You could look at public transport but I didn’t see any buses or anything when I was there and having a car means you have complete independence. The roads were great! Not tiny at all and def not scary – there were hardly any cars on the countryside roads actually. In terms of time, if you have longer than a weekend it would be great to spend at least an extra few nights in Puglia – there were towns that we didn’t get to see because we just didn’t have the time. I would say a weekend is the minimum time needed. It’s a beautiful part of the world so spend as long as you can there!! X Enjoy x

        Haha omg I never saw your reply here and just landed on your blogpost again as I am finally making my way to Puglia in 2 weeks!! One more question – did you stay at Canne Bianche Lifestyle Hotel the entire time and then just adventure out from there? Thanks for all of the help!

          Hey, that’s so exciting yay! And I’m so jealous! Yes we stayed at Canne Bianche the whole time and drove out from there each day. Depending on how long you have I would probably split your time between two hotels and stay in a hotel a little further down too, as there are a lot of nice towns in the south that we didn’t get a chance to visit. 🙂

          Enjoy! x

    Thank you for this amazing blog post! I’m way too excited to go to Puglia next week. Me and my boyfriend will stay in 4 different hotels in 2 weeks time. And of course we rent a car to discover the area. Can’t wait! 😀
