sits between the Adriatic and Ionian seas on the tip of Italy’s heel. With nearly three-quarters of the region surrounded by sea
, Puglia is a wonderful destination for a coastal holiday, with beautiful sandy beaches that slope gently into clear seas. Your adventure in Puglia will place you in Taranto,
a city with rich character and history.
Taranto heralds from Greek-Sparton roots and today is characterised by its dual character. Here you will find an ancient centro storico
on a small island surrounded by a lagoon (the Mar Piccolo) alongside an upscale, burgeoning metropolis replete with restaurants, cafes, shops, and wide avenues. During your visit to Taranto, you will feel as if you are traveling through time
- from ancient relics to contemporary delights
. Be sure not to miss its Magna Gaecia Musum, one of the finest in Italy. We strongly recommend you book our car hire option
