Itria Valley

The most enchanting part of Puglia

The Itria Valley (in italian Valle d’Itria), the very heart of Puglia, is defined by a bucolic countryside dominated by centuries-old olive trees, and by the timeless fairy-tale beauty of “trulli”, the cone-shaped houses distinctive to Puglia, making it the most enchanting part of Italy’s heel. The inland preserves wonderful old farmhouses and picturesque country houses and charming towns such as Alberobello, the capital of trulli, the white gleaming city of Ostuni and elegant towns such as Martina Franca, Locorotondo and Ceglie Messapica with their quaintly narrow streets and unique Mediterranean atmosphere. The coastline of this area is also very beautiful and important for the presence of archaeological site of Egnatia, which contains one the most important archaeological findings in Puglia.
