The Italian city of Brindisi, once known as the “door to the Orient” for its ancient role in maritime trade, sees the world’s current shipping snarls as an opportunity to reclaim its status as a key hub for commerce, with some help from European Union funds. The key to its success would be to widen its port to host growing numbers of so-called RoRo...

NEAR THE PORT OF BRINDISI, one of the largest in Southern Italy, a set of monumental stairs climb from the waterfront to a small square with a column and the remains of another. These are the Roman Columns of Brindisi, the origins and purpose of which are still unknown. Historically, it’s believed the columns marked the end of the Via Appia, a mass...

The South of Italy has no shortage of breathtaking landscapes, rich history and incredible cuisine – but it’s still somewhat unknown when compared to other areas of the Bel Paese. It’s a good thing then that there are several initiatives that aim to make it more accessible and popular, like the Cammino Materano and its newest hiking route.

There are places that leave their beauty to speak for them. Anyone who visits Apulia can therefore not help but visit its most authentic heart, from the red earth and the countless olive trees: it is the Itria Valley, the central part of Apulia, the point of union of the provinces of Bari, Brindisi and Taranto.

When Luigi Rubino established Tenute Rubino in 1999, the idea of producing 1.2 million bottles of wine using estate-grown indigenous grapes annually seemed light-years away. However, fast-forward 20 years and that is exactly what he is doing, along with his wife and business partner Romina Leopardi and their winemaker Luca Petrelli. Rubino’s father...

No, its not just because the pizza you'll find in Italy's smaller cities will likely be cheaper than comparable pies in the big touristy ones like Florence and Rome.
