Driving from Ostuni to Vicenza

Jump to last reply

Hi there!

We are house swapping in Italy this August, and will be taking two days to drive from Ostuni in the south to Vicenza in the North...we'd like to drive up the eastern coast. Can anyone recommend great towns (and hotels if you know of any) to spend the night along the way?

Any must see sights?

Thanks a ton!

    In August the coast is going to be suffering serious traffic jams every day with no scenic rewards (and if you try to include scenic rewards, you will need 4 days to make the trip). The great sight on the eastern coast is Ravenna, but it is out of your way and I don't think you have time to see it if you are only allowing 2 days for this trip.

    If there is a flight from Brindisi to Bologna or Milan or Venice, I highly recommend taking it and then getting Vicenza by train (or car rental if you need a car in Vicenza). Another possibility is dropping off the car in Bari, taking the coastal train to Padova, where you change for a train to Vicenza. If you don't fancy being on the train for 7 hours straight, you can get off at more of the more pleasant coastal stops, like Pescara or Rimini to spend the night or two or get off in Bologna and have two nights there (and take a day trip to Ravenna).

    Otherwise, just divide the trip into digestible driving bites (allow for traffic) and book the best hotel you can afford in advance at what looks like a reasonable stop for the night.
