Holidays to Selva di Fasano are all about leafy forests, traditional village architecture and laidback rural living.

Natural beauty

This small town in southern Italy's Puglia is a real back-to-nature spot. Visitors come to wander through the rustling forests that surround the region's limestone trullo homes – traditional stone huts with cone-shaped roofs. Meanwhile, a smattering of more modern hotels and villas accommodate nature-loving guests.

Daytrips to Fasano

For a different scene entirely, history-rich Fasano's got grand palaces and pre-Roman churches for the picking, all within a 15-minute drive from Selva di Fasano. After sunset, you can bring your sightseeing right up to date with an evening at a local club here.

Going wild

A 10-minute drive out of town, nature of a different sort's on show at the Zoo Safari. This safari park on a nature reserve is home to lions, tigers and bears, plus cheeky giraffes and camels that like to say hello to visitors.
