Puglia with an 18 Month Old

My husband and I have been to Italy several time and would like to plan a trip this summer or fall and bring our 18 Month Old baby girl. Does anyone have any thoughts on whether Puglia is a good region to visit with a baby? (Or, if not, any other recommendations)? We'd like a place near a beach, but would also like to visit towns. Thank you!

I've seen this place recommended by others to those wishing to find somewhere in Puglia, near the beach, with young children


I'm sorry I can't give advice from personal experience.

I wouldn't forsee any problems with a 18mo bay visiting Puglia. It can get quite warm the months form mid July to mid August. the rest shold be fine. If you wish to stay in a city close to the beaches, then Gallipoli is a good place. You have access to all main services (pharmacies, banks, hospital etc.). About 30min away from the Baroque City Lecce. If you wish to visti areas such as Alberobello etc, you'd be better off staying on the ocast between Bari and Brindisi. Once you've chosen the area, you can look at various solutions on www.homelidays.com (direct from owners).

The Best solution is Peschici Rodi or Vico, close to the beach, on the day all thing to do.

You might be interested in this trip report which appeared on another travel forum, written by the mother of a toddler who took her child to Puglia a few years ago:
