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.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.
