Baroque white hilltop town in the land of trulli; a southern highlight About Martina Franca Martina Franca is a fair-sized town (population: 49,000) in the heart of Puglia, southern Italy.

Martina Franca Tourist Information

It has some ugly modern areas, but the town's jewel is its lovely historic centre, a memorable maze of winding alleys, where whitewashed simplicity sits side by side with baroque extravagance. The town is built on a hill in the green Valle d'Itria, the trulli area of Puglia, and it makes a good day trip if you are exploring the region or a pleasant stop-over on a tour. Martina Franca is an incredibly photogenic town, so come equipped to take lots of pictures: the narrow lanes that are so hard to photograph well in other Italian cities are here illuminated by whitewashed walls, pale stone and tiny open spaces. Things to see in Martina Franca A map from the tourist information office outlines a short walking tour of the centro storico, but really you might just as well glance at the map and then wander.

The Thinking Traveller

The origins of this enchanting place date back to the 4th century BC when Greek settlers founded the city of Neapolis. It flourished under the Romans and was important enough for Emperor Trajan to direct his Via Traiana, built between 108-110 AD, through the town. Remains of this road include a bridge at Lama Monachile, just north of the historic centre. STP Lecce. Grunnregler%2Bmat%2Bog%2Bvin.

The best beaches of Puglia: Torre Lapillo Bay and Punta Prosciutto

Some of the best beaches are just in my area: Salento peninsula. I think it’s time for me to write about them and to tell some of their secrets giving my tips on when to go, where to stay and what to see too. I mean, the beaches I think are the best beaches in Salento: Torre Lapillo Bay and Punta Prosciutto beach, in the small seaside resort of Porto Cesareo. First, I will write about the area in general, then I will go into detail of these white sandy beaches surrounded by a crystalline sea. I have added a great photo gallery to my article, that, I think can give a perfect idea of what I am talking about. Where is Porto Cesareo and where are its beaches? STP Lecce.

Unspoilt Italy: fall head over heel for Puglia's Salento region

Her relaxed demeanour conceals a flurry of activity as she passes from one table to another, directing staff to bring forth bags of bread, bottles of wine and a succession of dishes concocted by her husband Gigi, the chef. Word is spreading about Gustavo Braceria, with its cosy dining rooms and tables in the garden in summer, beneath trees laced with fairy lights.
