5 day holiday in Puglia

Hi all, looking to stay in Puglia, where do you recommend to be based? Bari/Lecce or Gallipoli or somewhere else? Don't want to drive, whats public transport like to get to places like Ostuni and other surrounding areas?

Thanks,

Mike

I think I would plump for Lecce, as - by train, at least - it is halfway between Gallipolli (1 hr - not Sundays) and Ostuni (51 mins). Ostuni is on the line that goes from Lecce to Bari, passing through Brindisi (coming from Lecce, this is the stop before Ostuni) and Polignano a Mare. Bari to Lecce by train takes 1h50 so Bari would be a bit far for a day trip to Gallipolli.

Keep in mind that the city of Ostuni is high on a hill, while the railway station is in the plain below. However, there are rather frequent bus connections between the station and the city; to get an idea see
