Bari is located on the Adriatic Sea in the region of Puglia, those who have seen the 2004 film, The Passion of the Christ, will recognize Puglia’s unique landscape once they arrive.
In Puglia, we recommend The Relais Villa San Martino in Martina Franca (shown here). Our insider expert says it’s ideal for a wedding, honeymoon or luxury getaway. Another tip is La Sommita Relais in Ostuni, which sits at the top of a narrow medieval street. We also suggest Masseria Torre Maizza in Savelletri di Faisnao, which is comprised of two 16th-century watchtowers and is a charming choice for clients.
