Every moment of the year is suitable for a first class holiday, expecially in a region that is full of interesting venues, precious accommodation facilities and attractions spread all over the region.
We are talking about Apulia, a jewel of southern Italy, that we are used to connect with summer season, but is an ideal destination also in autumn. Our brief guide is panoramic view on momuments, events and natural landscapes that you cannot miss.
Apulia, land of castles and trulli
The first thing that we couple with Apulia are the trulli of Alberobello, located in Itria Valley, traditional dry stone hut from prehistorical age and listed by UNESCO as World Heritage Site. The oldest date back to XVI century and are situated in the Murge area.
Are you undecided about your next holidays? We have a look at the greatest island of Italy, Sicily. Contrary to what he claims isn’t a region to visit only on summer, becuase just thanks to its mild and sunny climate is nice also on autumn and during others periods of the year, the up-country and the coasts offer both many attractions.
Routes through Sicily
We can start from history: the so-called Trinacria keeps the evidences of far ages, for example from the settlement by the Greeks, that allow to admire venues as the Valley of the Temples, in Agrigento, or the amphitheatres, jewels where now take place exclusive and moving shows.
Among these theatres we suggest the Theatre of Segesta, in province of Trapani, the Theatre of Syracuse, renovated during the Ancient Rome Age, and the Ancient Theatre of Taormina, built by Greeks but restored by Romans. Continue
Our travel through UNESCO World Heritage Sites continues, Italy has many different sites and in particular the Imperial retreats of Roman Empire era, now open to public.Â These venues are also a boost to spend some days at accommodation facilities rich of history, like restored dwelling abodes, luxury relais and noble villas now furnished and well-equipped.
Visit Villa Adriana and Villa d’Este in Tivoli
Located in the center of Italy, the town of Tivoli keeps prestigious archaeological sites from Roman age and is a destination selected by worldwide tourists. The two main attractions are Hadrian’s Villa, built between 118 and 138 A.D. by Emperor Hadrian, and Villa d’Este, commissioned by Cardinal Ippolito II d’Este during Renaissance.
Autumn is just begun but the wish of travel isn’t decreased. The sunny climate of these weeks, in fact, is an invite to plan last minute travels to Italy.Â We suggest you an itinerary through Lazio, a region full of vents and venues dip into nature, where to relax youselves and find your own balance.Â If this isn’t enough, you can also go to Rome, to be always updated about new trends and fashion styles that often start here.
Gourmet roads and sips of excellence
Who likes enogastronomy can go through the road of wines at Castelli Romani, an area next to Rome where is possible to visit churches, villas from Renaissance and wide stretch of grapevine. Here there are also many restaurants with typical menus, the ideal to taste the precious red wine, served with meat courses.
Towns like Frascati, renowned also for bread and biscuits, the Medieval Genzano and Velletri, quoted by Goethe in its â€śItalian Journeyâ€ť for its wonderful landscapes, give to travellers the great natural beauties of locations unaltered over time, but a few kilometers from a metropolis like Rome.
