Polignano a Mare, Monopoli & Ancestral towns

Jump to last reply

Will be visiting Puglia this September-- a four night's stay with my husband as an anniversary celebration We need a convenient base in Puglia. that will allow us to make the most of the area and prefer one location. Plans are to arrive by rental car from Naples after a quick visit to an ancestral town in Campania along the way. Our Puglia stay follows, then we are off to Matera for three nights, the Amalfi coast for five nights, then heading back home from Naples. We can visit Altamura and possibly Alberobello from Matera.

Polignano a Mare and Monopoli seem to be locations that might allow us to see several towns as days trips, including my grandparent's birthplace, Giovinazzo, just outside of Bari. Does this make sense? We figure Polignano a Mare and Monopoli as a base will allow for shorter day trips to Trani and Lecce.

Suggestions? Looking for a special masseria with water views. We have never been to this part of Italy and we are very excited after reading the excellent trip reports here!
