Flying to Apulia – There are two main airports in the Region: Bari closest to the central northern tourist resorts and Brindisi, chosen above all for those staying in the Itria Valley and Salento. Puglia can also be reached by train thanks to the connections proposed by the State Railways and by sea with ferries or private boats.
Getting around – Apulia can be explored by car, but also by train and bus. There are four regional railway lines: the South-East Railways linking the city of Bari to Brindisi, Lecce and Taranto; the tramway that connects Bari to the Northern Municipalities; the Appulo Lucane railways from Bari to Basilicata and the Gargano railways that connect the city of Foggia to the neighboring municipalities. Bus companies, both private and urban, connect the main airports to the most important cities in the area and on the coast. Those who want to reach the Tremiti Islands can do it thanks to the ferries or the companies that carry out the transport by helicopter.
Suggested daily budget – around 20 to 100 EUR
