Pretty Puglia: Sun, Sea, Snow

Sun, Sea & Snow

Generally people come to Puglia for its outstanding natural beauty, crystal clear blue oceans, of which it boasts two; Adriatic and Ionian, fabulous fresh food and unique towns and cities, and of course, the warm weather.  However, winter in Pugila can be a bit nippy and this week has been exceptionally cold, with freezing temperatures, blizzards and localised snow.

However, Puglia is still pretty, even in these adverse weather conditions and I wanted to share with you just how stunning Puglia is, even in the winter.

    1. Hi Vincenzo,

      I’m pleased you like the pictures, it really does look magical here in the snow, more so than in the sunshine…. Although I would welcome the warm weather 😉

      You’re more than welcome to save any of the pictures from my site for your own use.
