Puglia

Apulia


The Italian peninsula looks like a boot, and Apulia is the footstep of this boot. This region is about the same latitude as Naples, but on the eastern side of the mountains. Moderate rains in winter and very rare rain in summer make this area very dry. Most of this region are plains, which are used for growing wine and olives. An important but poor part of the region is the Gargano peninsula, which is called the spur of Italy.
