Puglia is a treasure trove of art, history, and nature. A land of sun and hospitality, it's located on a strip of land in southeastern Italy, in a strategic position in the heart of the Mediterranean. Centuries of history and a range of charming landscapes are just some of the reasons why it's such a unique destination, one where you'll enjoy some truly unforgettable experiences.
Puglia, with its 800 km (500 miles) of coastline, is hugged by two incredible seas. The Ionian and the Adriatic have crafted a variety of different shores, with steep cliffs overlooking colorful sea bottoms and golden beaches sloping into crystal clear waters. Inland, the uncontaminated realm of nature comprises great valleys and gentle hills covered with olive trees, vineyards, and luxuriant forests, as well as some surprising Mediterranean gravine (ravines).
Another important acknowledgment to the work of NECSTouR Regions towards a more competitive and sustainable tourism has been obtained today at the "Charter Award Ceremony 2017", organised by EUROPARC Federation to celebrate the work of Protected Areas towards the implementation of the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism in Protected Areas.
