After lots and lots (and lots!) of reading/notetaking/talking about pages and pages of previous Tripadvisor Postings (thanks to all of you!) we have now put a shape to our July/Aug visit this year!
We think we will confine our trip to south of Bari to allow us time to explore and time to relax.
These are the bones of our trip:
Arrive Tues July 17th in Bari Airport at 19.20 and pick up a car - which we will have for the entire holiday
Stay not too far away for 2 nights - perhaps in Polignano a Mare (or even Trani?)
Matera for 2 nights
Alberobello for 1 night
Ostuni - Masseria Il Frantoio for 3 nights - to eplore Martina Franca etc
Lecce for 2 nights
Otranto - have booked Hotel Profumo de Mare for 7 nights - Sat July 28th to Sat August 4th. Eplore Santa Maria di Leuca etc from here.
Return car in Brindisi Airport and fly out from there on Sat August 4th at 11.05.
We still have another night not allocated - any suggestions on that? Also - would we be better advised to spend another night in the Masseria in Ostuni instead of staying in Alberobello and just day trip to Alberobello?
We would welcome all comments and suggestions.
Thanks to all
