1. Romantic itineraries through the villages and the most beautiful areas of Puglia
If your idea of a honeymoon is to get lost in small villages of southern Italy accompanied by the love of your life, consider that in Puglia this is at your fingertips.
Among the first places to visit there is certainly Alberobello, unmissable destination for lovers who want to keep an unforgettable memory of their honeymoon (see also our article Everything you always wanted to know about the Trulli of Alberobello).
With its trulli it has an atmosphere of pure enchantment. This city could be the perfect setting for a romantic movie. Why not yours?
For those who love the sea, however, the small centers of Monopoli, Polignano a Mare or the area of Salento are destinations to be considered. The seaside towns are always fascinating places and, at certain times of the year, the perfect destinations for honeymooners.
Or you could walk through the narrow streets of Ostuni hand in hand and marvel at the candor of the old town, the colors of the sunset while contemplating it from one of the many panoramic views. It is a charming place with its small shops and small restaurants hidden among alleys and buildings in white stone. You will not want to leave when, outside the defensive walls of the old city center, you will see the colors of the sea on the horizon after a large green area of olive groves.
2. Watch the sunrise or sunset in Salento: Otranto, Santa Maria di Leuca and Gallipoli
If you choose the Salento you will absolutely have to take advantage of the beauty of the sun rising and setting from the sea. After all, what’s more romantic than admiring the sunset or dawn in good company?
Three cities must surely be considered to enjoy this spectacle of nature:
- Otranto: the easternmost city of Italy, to contemplate the sunrise;
- Gallipoli: with a spectacular sunset in its gulf touched by the Ionian Sea;
- Santa Maria di Leuca: where the two seas meet each other, Ionian and Adriatic, to enjoy both.
3. Romantic stay in a typical house
Puglia has the most varied types of accommodation facilities but the most typical are certainly the trulli They are built with stone and with a characteristic conical roof and are very romantic and welcoming, you can admire them only in Puglia, with a high concentration in the area known as Valle D’Itria. Another alternative from Puglia are the famous and appreciated masserie.
They are an excellent choice for those that prefers to stay in a nature setting. Some of these farms in Puglia have an elegant and luxury atmosphere like the beautiful Masseria Alchimia, which offers all the privacy and services for a comfortable and special stay.
Another dream option, if you have a larger budget to spend, is to stay in a super-luxury hotel like that of the Peschiera. A room with a veranda overlooking a few meters from the sea on one side and, on the other, a large swimming pool with all the amenities to relax and enjoy the sun of Puglia.
