Itinerary advice for 9 days in Puglia/Basilicata?

Jump to last reply

After many years of talking about it we are finally headed to Puglia in early October. I'll be traveling with my mother. We arrive/depart from Bari and will have a car for the whole trip.

We have 3 nights in a Masseria between Fasano and Ostuni, 3 nights in a palazzo converted to a B&B in the center of Lecce, and 3 nights in a hotel in the sassi of Matera.

Now comes the hard part; what to see/do and more importantly, where to EAT in these areas (we tend to lean toward rustic as opposed to fancy). I'd like to arrange a loose itinerary for each area. We love markets and the occasional museum. Right now, the only thing we have booked is a tour with Nadia Garlatti in Matera.

I've read though many of the great trip reports here already but it's a bit overwhelming. I'm looking to weed out the gems our specific areas.

I haven't found anything which looks to be an adequate guide book just for the region so if anyone can recommend one, I'd love to know.

Any advice is welcome. Thanks!
