Hello! It is the beginning of the fourth Advent week and we are in the mood for Christmas. We enjoyed a beautiful walk in the early morning in the Baroqued old town of Lecce, South of Apulia, and took some pictures while the city was just waking up. A new video is now available on Giuseppa Sallustio Vimeo channel and here in our webpages at My Holidays in Apulia®. Welcome!
It was time for a gorgeous drive along the winding streets of the undulating hills among Brindisi, Bari and Taranto provinces. When we left the city of Lecce, the weather was nice and mild, indeed it was 26° C. Later on, after one hour and a half of driving, the tempearature was around 22° C and the sky had a light veil of clouds, which enhanced the mellowness of the soil and the honeyed palette of colors that nature uses to offer as gift during the Autumn season.
Once more we witnessed a masterwork of nature. Reverberating golden light and pink streakings painted the sky above ploughed fields, these latter as powerful expression of hard work and daily life in the surrounding area. That modern view of a rural frame, which reminded of the meticulous telling of great artists about authentic life in the countryside.
Wishing everybody a beautiful weekend!

Here we are finally reconnecting to nature! Let’s focus on the beautiful shots taken recently in this month of May. We are in the middle of Spring and now, more than ever, we have been given the great privilege of enjoying wonderful outstretched views, majestic natural landscapes made of bucolic simplicity, having a dip into local history and art. Indeed, these are among the featured elements, which make our Apulia land to look like a huge natural work space that is worth a visit.
Good morning, stay safe and keep on running! Wishing everybody a good new week
Despite the terrible historical time humanity is experiencing, nature continues to make a gift of its great little miracles in everyday life. On this Easter Monday, the weather is wonderful here in Apulia, in Southern Italy. The air is mild and a gentle breeze makes the flowers of our garden dance with graceful bows in the morning light. Step by step, looking forward with confidence, we will soon continue to build the future. Wishing everybody a good Easter Monday and please, stay safe <3
