Average book - but it's the only one available now Lonely Planet don't do a Puglia book.
It doesn't even mention Matera (a Unesco world heritage site) which is just a few miles outside Puglia.
Towns are organised into the Italian sub regions, which is exceedingly dumb for tourists - the central 'trulli' area is thus split over three sections.
Restaurants are covered at the back of the book and many towns have none listed.
Lots of good photos is a plus point.
The writer is clearly more used to doing travel brochures with over glossy text - still it's better than nothing.
