The climate is typically Mediterranean: dry Summer heat
and mild Winters. In the Apulian territory rain is very
rare. Only in winter are there some rainfalls. Apulia is
the area with least rain in Italy.
In Apulia there are three railway lines which connect the
region with the rest of Italy: along the Adriatic coast
runs the line for Ancona-Bologna, while from Bari and Taranto
that for Naples. The motorways connect Bari with Bologna
and Naples with Rome. The road network allows good links
with all the towns. The most important airports are those
of Palese (near Bari) and Casale (nearBrindisi).
