Ceglie is considered the gastronomic capital of Puglia (Apulia). Its location atop of a hill provides a lovely view of the surrounding countryside. Lots of small very good restaurants for all purses and never a lack of historical sites, as it is usual in Italy.

Ceglie is a wonderful place, not so much touched by tourism, like Ostuni in the neighbourhood, but with the same beauty of a puglian hill village. Wonderful old centre, white houses, narrow streets, which are full with life, as locals are living in it, and...More
