Martha Bakerjian writes the Italy Travel site on About.com and wrote the Puglia Travel Guide and Italy Travel Tips apps for Sutro Media. She and her husband have a home in the Lunigiana region of northern Tuscany where they live about five months of the year. During the last 30 years Martha has traveled extensively in Italy and has visited every region. As part of US archeology projects, she spent several summers in Sardinia and one in Puglia. Puglia is one of Martha's favourite regions because of its slow pace, diversity, friendly people, and fantastic food.
She has written about highlights of the region in her Puglia Travel Guide app. With this app you'll discover Puglia's best beaches and the food of Puglia. Explore Roman and Greek ruins, medieval villages and castles, the unique trulli, and nature reserves and caverns. Take this guide with you when you visit Puglia or use it at home to discover one of Italy's lesser-known but beautiful regions.
One of Italy's prettiest and most popular stretches of coastline is the coast of the Liguria region in northwestern Italy, known as the Italian Riviera. Liguria starts at the Gulf of Poets, or the Bay of La Spezia, just beyond Tuscany, and continues to the border of France.
Puglia, or Apulia, is the southeastern region of Italy known as the heel of the boot. It's a long and narrow region with lots of coastline on both the Adriatic and Ionian seas, making it a great place for lovers of beaches, fresh seafood, and seaside towns. Puglia has a wealth of fascinating places to visit and is not yet overrun with tourists. It's the perfect place to have a relaxing vacation, eat well, and enjoy the slow-paced southern Italian life.
