OUR PUGLIA ITINERARY -- advice needed, please!

Jump to last reply

Would love some insight and advice on our itinerary, which is still in the early planning stages. We will have about a week in late June. We are a couple in our 40s who love great food, beautiful towns, gorgeous beaches, and charming places to stay.

Here's what I'm thinking so far...

SALENTO AREA (2-3 nts)
We would like to explore the beautiful beaches, eat great seafood, and see Lecce.
I was thinking to stay in Lecce and the use the car to venture to the sea during the day, enjoying Lecce in the evenings.

The Palazzo Persone seems beautiful and very affordable, with a great location in Lecce. But not sure if you we should be staying on the beach somewhere and just taking a day trip into Lecce.

MURGIA AREA (2 nights)
Our goal is spend two nights and explore small charming towns in the area (need to narrow it down: Locorotonda, Martina Franca, Ostuni, Polignano e Mare) and eat great food.

Thinking about Masseria Abate near Noci
or
Don ferrante in Monopoli
or
somewhere else (any suggestions in Ostuni?)

BARI AREA (1-2 nts)
Again looking for great food. Want to eat at Masseria Barbera (thanks to Franco and Ekscrunchy) and see Trani.

Thinking of staying at Lama Di Luna or somewhere in Trani.

MATERA (1 night)
Would like to stay overnight at the Hotel in Pietra.
But if we're driving, is it enough just to spend a morning and have lunch?

Thanks so much, in advance, for any insight.

Dina
