Why this Walk?
Hiking Puglia offers the opportunity to discover this unspoilt Italian region on foot, as well as a chance to find yourself in an ideal place to simply watch the world go by. Puglia’s ascendancy from Italy’s best kept-secret to a hotspot for Italophiles is a very recent development, but less obvious is the region’s wealth of national parks, nature reserves and miles of awe-inspiring rugged coastline. A walking holiday is the perfect way to see a side of Puglia often overlooked, following trails that originated as shepherd paths and trading links between villages. It’s a pursuit very much in keeping with the ideals and aims of slow travel, as you have time to fully appreciate where you are in the moment, at a pace best suited for taking in the wild and beautiful landscape of Puglia.
