First time to Puglia. Help with best base and itinerary.

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling to Puglia for two weeks flying into Bari 10/10 (11am arrival) and out of Naples 10/25. I was planning on staying at a masserie near Martina Franca for 3/4 nights and doing day trips to surrounding towns including Altamura where my grandparents were born. I was then thinking of staying at a Masserie in S. marina di Leuce for 3/4 nights and doing day trips in Southern Puglia. I will then be heading towards Naples with potential stops in Materna/Potenza. I will then stay outside of Naples and visit Paestum and a water buffalo farm. I enjoy wine tasting, culture,beach and history. I am looking for any suggestions on not to miss places. I was thinking of booking half-board at the Masserie, since I was not sure especially in southern Puglia if many restaurants will still be open. Also, has anyone rented a boat in that region and traveled to the caves themselves. How difficult is this. I will have a rental car and have travel to other regions of Italy.
