Puglia is full of culture, history, beautiful cities and nature that fills the eyes with lot of beauty, before talking about Trulli i want to tell you
Whats the three Best Apulian Cities you must see in your life?
Ostuni also known as “The White City” because of its typical low houses of limestone rocks that populate the narrow streets of its center. If you go into the historic center od Ostuni you can find many stairways and narrow streets surrounded by an ancient and historic charm, the numerous small shops and local animate the nightlife and summers of Ostuni. At its campaigns is a varied choice of Masseria, ancient typical farmhouse in southern Italy. Many Masseria were abandoned in the late nineteenth century, but thanks to the restoration projects, many of them have been restored and converted into beautiful hotels and it’s the best suggestive place to get marry in Puglia.
Monopoli is a small Italian city near 48km from Ostuni in which historical and natural beauties capture the hearts of travelers every year. Its historic center includes well-9 medieval churches and countless cobblestone alleys. In addition, a few km from Monopoli, in an area with incredible geological features, you cannot go toPuglia and not see the ancient port of Monopoli one of the most important attractions in Puglia and a natural heritage of inestimable value to Italy.
Polignano a Mare
Polignano a Mare has a special charm, juts out into the Adriatic Sea from one coast sculpted by the same waters, 24metri high, with its grouping of whitewashed houses with its past which has Greek origins, Polignano A Mare attracts many tourists who stay continuously enchanted by this charming place that seems almost to be a painting.
The three things that you can not miss in Polignano a Mare are: the Arco Marchesale built in the eighteenth century, which is also the entrance of the city, the two Roman era bridges and buildings that were to preserve foodstuffs and the fish and finally the port area where you can admire the natural port with the tip of the “Bastion Saint Stephen”.
And the most important thing of your Romantic Wedding in Polignano a Mare, do not forget to go to dinner at a restaurant created inside of marine rocks!!!!
