Best New Year’s Eve in Puglia

Not only Puglia established itself as one of the main destinations in Italy for the summer holidays, but it is also becoming a tourist destination for the Christmas and New Year holidays. This, especially thanks to the beauty that the region offers, the good food, and the mild climate, even during wintertime.
Big parties for New Year’s Eve 2020 are scheduled in Puglia in the last and first days of the year. The culmination of the celebrations, of course, will be the evening and night of December 31, 2019 with many events to celebrate the arrival of the new year in the best way.
Here are the best events of the new year 2020 in Puglia.

BARI
The main event of the 2020 New Year’s Eve in Puglia will be in Bari, where will take place a great music show, live on national radio and television and will see the participation of many Italian and international artists. After the concert, people will continue to dance after midnight with the exceptional Dj Set.
The more daring can participate in the Marcialonga Nicolaiana, which includes a mass in the Basilica of San Nicola and after that a traditional New Year’s dip in the sea.

VALLE D’ITRIA
Another good idea to spend the New Year’s Eve in Puglia is the suggestive Valle d’Itria, which includes some of the most beautiful villages in Puglia, such as Locorotondo, Alberobello and Cisternino. For those who have never visited it, it is truly a magical place, with the classic Trulli and white houses, the farms with avenues lit by candles and Christmas lights and the olive trees under the light of the moon and stars. A special place to celebrate in a party but also perfect for crowning an unforgettable evening with your partner.

LECCE
The beautiful Piazza di Sant’Oronzo will frame the New Year’s Eve in Lecce. The year-end “Concertone” is now a classic that attracts people from Salento but also from outside, but there are plenty of alternatives, given the many clubs in the center, which organize excellent dinners with evening entertainment and music after midnight.

FIRST DAWN IN ITALY
If you decide to spend New Year’s Eve in Puglia, you will be lucky enough to see the first dawn in Italy. It is near Otranto, less than an hour’s drive south of Lecce. Here is Punta Palascia, a very suggestive point of Puglia where the Ionian Sea and the Adriatic meet. A breathtaking view and an extraordinary show to get lost in.
The Punta Palascia lighthouse, framed in its splendor by the first Italian dawn of the year, is the guardian of this amazing spectacle of nature.
To spend here the midnight you just have to carry some food, bring some blankets to protect yourself from the cold, and uncork a bottle of prosecco to celebrate.
On 1 January 2020, the sun in Punta Palascia will rise at 7.09 and to entertain the public there will be theatrical performances, video projections, sound design, live music, jam sessions and DJ sets.
