Other Things to Note
Puglia is the region jutting out at the heel of Italy’s boot, nestled between the Adriatic and Ionian Seas.
Martina Franca is exactly in the centre of the region 30 minutes drive to either the Adriatic sea to the east and the Ionian sea to the west. Puglia has some of the most beautiful beaches in Italy with very safe waters to swim in. During peak season buses go to most of them but check with your host on arrival.
In the historical centre of Martina Franca art and history come together. Take a walking tour of the old town to soak up the sites.
In the countryside surrounding Martina Franca you can find the magical scenery of the “Valle d’Itria” with many trullos, dry stonewalls, old olive trees, vineyards and farmhouses as well as the donkeys of Martina Franca and the “Murgese” horses.
