Is Puglia Passé?

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

Check this out: The January 2010 issue of Condé Nast Traveler magazine suggests that Puglia’s time as a “hot” tourism destination has passed. In its “Word of Mouth” section, the magazine headlines “Italy: The New Dolce Vita” and opens by asking, “Done with Tuscany and Umbria? Discovered Puglia and Sicily? Italy insiders are now heading to Piedmont for a wine, food, and design fix at a reasonable price.”
So does this mean that Puglia is passé? Not for us. However, if you think you’ve “done” Puglia by experiencing the trulli of Alberobello, Castel del Monte, a beach or two, and a few bottles of primitivo-based wine, then by all means, move on. But Puglia has so much more to offer, if you take the time to do some research. One of our goals is to make you aware of some of the lesser-known attractions and activities Puglia offers to discerning travelers.
A side note: We have been experiencing a horrible series of computer problems, mishaps and lost files over the past few months. We apologize for this situation and we are doing what we can do fix this and prevent it from happening again. Please keep watching our site and this blog for updates.
