Puglia, or Apulia as it is also known, forms the southern region of Italy. When looking at a map, Puglia shapes the ‘heel’ to Italy’s ‘boot’, a nice image to show the children in an atlas when planning your trip.

This beautiful family resort is a hidden gem on the Italian coast, with its abundance of cliffs, coves and deserted beaches, Puglia is just waiting for families to come and explore.

As with most Mediterranean destinations, Puglia is at its hottest in the summer months of July and August, reaching temperatures of 30° plus. If you are travelling with smaller children and want to visit in more comfortable temperatures, then June and September are slightly cooler, but still very warm. Spring months are also very popular times to visit.

Puglia is rich in culture and history, which makes it a great destination for families seeking more to do with the children then just sunbathing and sandcastles. Throughout the region you will discover amazing examples of Baroque architecture, mysterious caves and monuments to explore, not to mention the Greek and Neolithic archaeological sites that are spread around the land. The children will love to take in all the history that Puglia has to offer. After all of that site seeing you may need a few days off to recover, Puglia has plenty of stunning sandy beaches to relax on too, making this destination a perfectly versatile family holiday hotspot.


Things to do with the children

One way to the children’s hearts on a trip to Puglia is through their tummies. What child doesn’t love pizza and ice cream? Of which Italy is famed for! Take the kids to one of the many quiet bistros or family run restaurants that are dotted around the region and discover the excellent Italian cuisine, maybe mum and dad could also sample a small glass of Pinot whilst they are there. To explore this fine food hands on, there are a few culinary schools dotted around the region too, so why not get stuck in and have the kids tossing some pizza dough and mixing some sauces, all whilst learning about the countries famous food.

In the town of Fasano families can visit Zoosafari Fasanolandia. This is more than just a zoo safari, this Puglia family attraction offers shows, rides and all the entertainment you need for a fun filled family day out. Whether you hire a car and ride round discovering the larger animals or take one of the scheduled day trips there to visit the park, this zoo adventure is a must for animal loving children.

If your children love to hear tales of knights and princesses then a day trip to visit Castel del Monte would be the perfect family attraction in Puglia. This world heritage site is situated in the Puglia town of Trani in the north. Take a walk around this unique castle and its unspoilt landscape or have a picnic in its surrounding parkland, famed for its originality, this historical building is a must visit for adventurous families.
