Calabria/Basilicata/Puglia or back to Tuscany?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are going to Italy for two weeks in May. We are experienced independent travelers and are trying to decide whether to head south or north when we leave the Rome airport in our rental car.

We wing it for the most part and don't mind moving around. We have traveled this way for years all over Europe and it works well for us. We have seen just about all of Italy
except for Calabria, Basilicata & Puglia.

We would appreciate any input from those who have traveled in that area. I have read most of the travel books on the area but there really isn't lot of info as this area isn't on the heavily traveled tourist circuit. I'd like to hear from someone who has been there and done that.

We like visiting small towns and just general sight seeing. My wife can't do alot of walking at this time so we are skipping the bigger cities.

Are the coastal villages worth the drive and is there much to see inland besides Matea and the Trullis? The alternative would be to spend a few days in the Amalfi area and then go to Tuscany.
