Italy - Puglia Help please

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I are planning to travel to Rome/Puglia this September. We have flights into Rome and out of Bari (transferring in Rome) with 3 weeks in between. We have both been to Rome before but he went on a tour with his high school and just spent like 2 days there. Our time in Rome is flexible and we wanted to spend most of it in Puglia, but we don't know how much.

This is the planned route so far

1) Vieste (Gargano National Park) (3 nights)
2) Monopoli (2 nights)
3) Alberobello (1 night)
4) Ostuni (1 night)
5) Lecce (2 nights)
6) Gallipoli (2 nights)
7) Taranto (1-2 nights)
8) Bari (2 nights)

1) Should we pick up a car in Rome and drive around in Puglia? It seems like there are decent bus/train connections for our journey after Ostuni. The longest journey would be between Rome to Vieste (either 7 hours by bus or 6 hours by changing train connections) and then from Vieste to Monopoli since we're saving Bari for last.

2) Is there anything to add to our itinerary - things that you must absolutely not miss. If there isn't enough time to add it then (if the schedule works) we would remove Monopoli for it.
