Located in the northern
central area of Apulia on the coastal plain is the City of Fasano in
the Province of Brindisi, with a population of less than 40,000 people
occupied mainly in either the tourism or agricultural industries.
With a history dating back nearly
1,000 years, and nearby sites dating back much further to pre Roman
times, there are plenty of historical attractions to view alongside
more modern amenities to keep visitors of all ages content.
Situated 35 miles from the cheap
flights of Brindisi Airport and a similar distance to Bari Airport
makes it easy to reach (under an hours drive to both) and an ideal base
to explore the region and local provinces.
The City has an historical centre
popular with visitors keen to explore the tangle of narrow streets
winding between white painted houses, ancient churches, palaces and the
remnants of the town wall and towers.
The Adriatic coastline of Fasano
is mostly unspoilt, with small coves cutting into the limestone, long
sandy beaches backed by sand dunes and crystal clear seas. There is
very little building of any kind along this stretch of coast apart from
the fishing village of Savelletri, the small resort of Torre Canne and
the Roman ruins at Egnazia, enabling everyone to find solitude or a
bustling place to enjoy their day at the seaside!
The countryside is a picture
perfect mix of olive groves and vineyards that is fairly flat toward
the sea or going further inland through the Selva di Fasano (woods of
Fasano), up onto the Murge plateau turns to gentle hills capped by
copse and dissected by thousands of un-named small lanes making
navigation a little tricky.
