Weddings in Italy Apulia or Puglia Wedding venues
Situated at the south-eastern tip of the Italian peninsula, Apulia covers over 19,000 square kilometers (7,336 sq mi) in succession of broad plains and low-lying hills. The only mountainous areas, the Gargano promontory and the Monti Dauni, do not exceed 1,150 m and are to be found in the north of Apulia, which is the least mountainous region in Italy.
Apulia is a very dry region. Its few rivers are torrential and are to be found on the Tavoliere delle Puglie, a tableland at the foot of the Gargano promontory that is one of the largest and agriculturally most productive plains in Italy. Elsewhere, rainwater permeates the limestone bedrock to form underground watercourses that resurface near the coast. Groundwater is therefore abundant, and there are many caves and potholes. The caves at Castellana Grotte are particularly spectacular.

Puglia (or Apulia as it is also called), is a food and wine lover’s paradise. One reason is that the fresh produce is of such high quality. Indeed, many of the basic elements of the Italian kitchen originate from Puglia. A huge proportion of Italy’s fish is caught off the extensive Apulian coast, 70% of the country’s olive oil is produced here and the region provides 80% of Europe’s pasta. Fish and seafood are abundant and better priced than in other parts of Italy.
Puglia is served by two airports at Bari and Brindisi and most of the region can be reached from these airports within 1 hours drive. There has never been a better time to buy property in Puglia.
