five reasons to visit puglia

Top 5 supplied by Puglia Holiday Rentals www.pugliaholidayrentals.com1 Puglia is one of the largest wine producing regions in Italy but it is only in recent years that it has produced its own wines – previously the bulk was sent to wineries further north for blending. The last Sunday in May sees Cantine Aperte, where cantine (wine cellars) open to the public for tours and tastings. Wineries all over Puglia, and Italy, take part in this event so you will certainly find something to your liking. Wines worth trying are: Primitivo, Negroamaro, Susumaniello, Aglianico, Nero di Troia, and Salice Salentino.2 Festivities are very much part of the Puglian culture and throughout the year there is always something going on – food, wine, patron saints, dance and historical events are all celebrated.3…

This would put the date of the city’s destruction at some time in the second half of October. Other evidence – such as autumn fruits on branches found among the ruins – also suggests that Pompeii met its…

Our Facebook followers are a well-travelled bunch, so when we asked for their Rome travel tips we weren’t disappointed…• Go inside the Altare della Patria (Vittorio Emanuele II Monument). So many people take a photo from the street but don’t go into the building. It is so beautiful.Ryrie Wild• Currently in Roma now. A reminder it is a big city so plan your days well. My fave museo is Palazzo Altemps close to Piazza Navona. A real gem and never busy. And hit the side streets for restaurants. Julie Adams• Visit the Centrale Montemartini museum, which has Roman statues displayed alongside the original machinery in this former power station! It’s amazing and very much undervisited, so you can get great photos without crowds of people.Rachel Helen MarkwickVilla d’Este (Image © iStock)•…
