 White village in Italy at sunset.

Ostuni

Best known as the ‘White City’, Ostuni boasts beautiful whitewashed buildings and architecture. Hundreds of years of history is built within this city, laid out in a striking fashion of built up layers that are a stark contrast to the blue sky and waters above and below. One of the best and most rewarding things to do in Ostuni is to simply go for a wander through it’s narrow winding streets- find a bite to eat, a glass of vino and watch the beautiful sunset. A must-do is to visit the Ostuni Roman Catholic cathedral, it’s a 15th century gothic masterpiece that is even more impressive inside.

Alberobello, Italy.

Alberobello

Within Puglia sits the small town and commune of Alberobello, known for its trulli- a cluster of whitewashed stone huts that feature cone-shaped roofs, built of limestone and drywall. The local rulers ordered the peasants of the time to make these structures so they would be easy enough to tear down in the case of a royal inspection, part of an elaborate plan in the 1500s so that the rich could evade paying taxes to the king. They stand as a symbol of the lengths the powerful will go to keep their wealth as well as the perseverance of the powerless in times of hardship. As with everywhere in Italy, Alberobello is a town steeped in abundant history, if you’re into museums, churches, walking tours and of course good wine, this is your place.

Otranto

Otranto

This beautiful coastal town is the most Eastern point of Italy and still serves as an active port with a fishing fleet. It features crystal blue waters with white sand beaches, diving spots and rocks and two lakes further inland- the perfect location for water-bound lovers. Otranto is home to the 15th century Aragonese Castle and an 11th century cathedral, which boasts ornate mosaic flooring. Truly a beautiful small town, there’s not much that can beat staring out towards the ocean and sharing a bottle of wine with a loved one here.

So, there you go, three beautiful spots to explore in Puglia, Italy- home of the beautiful Tramari rosé and the lush San Marzano winery. But, if you can’t make it there any time soon (thanks COVID-19) then grab yourself a bottle or two here  and imagine exploring the rich and vibrant Southern scenes of Italy as you sip on the refreshing notes of Tramari.
