Italy can be visited visa-free for up to 90 days by citizens from Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Israel, UAE and most countries in America. If you are not sure whether or not you need to apply for a visa, we recommend you to contact the embassy or consulate in your country. In order to enter the Schengen zone, international (non-Schengen) travellers need a passport that is valid for at least 3 months after the end of their intended trip. Citizens from Schengen countries can travel without a passport, but they must bring with them a valid ID during their stay.

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. Autumn is also a perfect period for cycling in Apulia, since this season boasts plenty of warm days in Apulia without the temperature getting too low. If you are not afraid of hot sunshine, summer is the right time to go there too, as the stunning beaches are perfect to sunbathe and relax while observing the waves crushing against the rocks.

Public Transport

Public Transport

Ferrovie del Sud Est provides buses and trains within the region, from Brindisi to Bari and to the southerm city of Santa Maria di Leuca. Bus tickets can be bought at any bus stations. The regional rail network covers much of the Puglia region, but few trains run to the south of Lecce. Buy train tickets at the station, either from the ticket office or from ticket machines, and validate by stamping them in the machines on the station platform before boarding. The easiest way to explore the region beyond Brindisi is by car. You must carry a current driving licence with photo ID. It is compulsory to wear both front and back seat belts. Cars drive on the right-hand side of the road. Parking and navigating in the cramped historic centres of towns such as Ostuni and Lecce is difficult, and it is usually easier to park outside the centre and explore it on foot.
