Festive Fun in Puglia: 2017

Salerno Lights Festive Fun in Puglia

Pugliese people are just starting to think about Christmas and although there aren’t any festive lights up yet, things are starting to gear up to that Holy day. In fact, only the other day I heard my first Christmas song, no, not on the radio but in a local bar/restaurant, and not just one random Christmas song but a whole album! Two out of the three girlfriends I was with, agreed with me, it’s a little premature mid November.

Anyway, I thought I would collate a few fun festive activities coming up in and around the Brindisi, Lecce and Salerno province, for you all to enjoy.
