Greg and Andrea live in northern Italy, but spent three weeks travelling around our region. In the second of a two part podcast we pick up with them in Santa Maria di Leuca as they head back up the Ionian coast. For part 1 click here.

They are effusive in their praise for Puglia and don’t hold back from describing their highlights - from restaurants to must-see places of beauty.

Pescaria Restaurant | Polignano a Mare

Try the Pugliese version of the hamburger - a fried octopus burger. Served in a bun with ricotta and lemon. “To die for” and to accompany it, la Salina - a beer made with sea water by the Pescaria brewery. Be prepared for the salty under-taste.
