Ostuni, Puglia - The White City

Italy, Ostuni Guide (B): Ostuni, Puglia - The White City

Ostuni is a unique town that resembles a bright cap rising up right from the flat plains near the southern coast of Italy. Its whitewashed defensive walls and houses in the old town with many winding streets, steps and beautifully decorated, colorfulwindow frames can make you think you're somewhere in Greece. Although Ostuni is one of the main attractions in Puglia, it's less known than Polignano a Mare or Alberobello famous for its cone-shaped Truli houses. And the whole region of Puglia, in turn, is not as popular as, let's say, Tuscany but it's definitely not less worth a visit - so do include it in your itinerary to Italy - especially in the winter time.

It's extremely cheap and convenient to travel to Puglia virtually from all over Europe - low cost airlines offer multiple flights to Bari or Brindisi.

Ostuni lies along the main railway from Bari to Lecce and you can easily reach it from both cities for a low fare. The station is located around 2 km (1.2 miles) from the town center and if you don't feel like walking up the road, you can take a bus that departs right in front of the station. ......
