History

It is only recently that Puglia started to get international recognition. It has been a closely guarded secret vacation spot for Northern Italians, making it relatively untouched and a great adventure for couples who will love its effortless beauty.  

Location

Puglia can be found at the heel of Itay – known as “Italy’s Boot” when looking at a map. Its crystal clear sea waters surround its stunning shoreline. You’ll also love the olive groves, which stretch for many miles, and the traditional vineyards. A visit in any season will capture your heart and make your Italian countryside wedding a decision you will remember fondly for a lifetime.

Towns

In Puglia, you’ll find some of Italy’s most pretty towns. For the coastal area, Polignano a Mare and Monopoli are the most picturesque. They possess a natural seaside charm that many can’t resist. Couples also fall in love with the facades and whitewashed walls in Puglia’s coastal towns, which reminds them of Santorini, Greece. However, the bright bougainvillaea climbing the walls here separates it from Greece and makes it stand out.

When you move further inland, you’ll find the Itria Valley, which is also full of beautiful towns. Some of these are Alberobello, Locorontondo, and Ostuni. Ostuni is the most popular of the three and is also known as “White City.” It is the ideal place for your white wedding in Puglia. Alberobello, on the other hand, is known for its cone-shaped rooftops. A wedding portrait session here would be magical.

Puglia Wedding Venues

For your wedding in the coastal areas, Puglia beach wedding venues are top-rated. You could get married on the sand or the stunning cliff edges made of rocks. In the inland, there is a wealth of ancient noble homes, castles, and converted farmhouses.

You could easily have your Puglia castle wedding here. Rustic weddings are also lavish for this location, especially with the converted farmhouses known as Masseria. A Puglia Boho chic wedding will flourish at this destination.

Masseria’s are some of the most perfect Puglia wedding venues. In most of them, you can find orchards, accommodation, courtyards, and pools. This makes them the ideal place for your wedding, honeymoon, or holiday in Italy.

You can also find stunning Baroque architecture and impressive facades further down south in the town of Leece. Leece is sometimes known as “Little Florence” and would be great for your wedding too. These are some of the luxury Italian wedding venues that can be found across Puglia.
