the heel - il tacco

Located on the “heel” of the boot, Apulia or Puglia is a delightful surprise with unique scenery, over the centuries it was invaded by Greeks, Arabs, Normans, Swedes, Aragonesi , and Saraceni, all of whom left their mark on the land.
Summers can be very hot and crowded in Apulia, so the best times for cycling are in April or May, when temperatures are perfect and the entire region is in full bloom, or September through early October, during la vendemmia grape harvest. Cyclists will love the tiny roads that sometimes seem like bike paths. The only problem is that many of these roads are not on maps so it can be a bit of a maze; cyclists should bring a compass and be ready to explore. Luckily, the outgoing and friendly Pugliese people will always point you in the right direction!
