Brindisi is a city in the region of Apulia in southern Italy, located on the coast of the Adriatic Sea. It represents the gateway to its namesake Italian province packed with relics of vanished civilisations. Its cultural inheritance ranges from the remains of ancient Roman highways to Gothic and Baroque churches, cathedrals, frowning battlements of Swabian castles and fortresses dating back to the 13th-century Reign of the Holy Roman Emperor, Frederick II.

Best Time to Visit

Spring in Apulia can be relatively hot and you can often take a dip in the sea even until early November. So, spring to early autumn (March to November) is surely an ideal period for travelling to this marvellous region of southern Italy, especially considering that this period boasts plenty of sunny days. This also makes it a good time for hiking or exploring the idyllic towns of Apulia, such as Alberobello, Ostuni, Lecce or Brindisi.
