If you are planning a trip to Puglia, or anywhere in Italy, it might be a good idea to check what days are public holidays. Although most shops and restaurants stay open on Public Holidays these days in some of the smaller towns some or all may be closed. Every town is different and every year is different.
Where a public holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday it is NOT moved to the following Monday.
If you are planning to eat out on a public holiday, or at any time in August, we strongly recommend that you make a reservation.
