Puglia itinerary too loose? Looking to fill in towns for day trips

Jump to last reply

I am beginning to panic a bit that I've left too much unplanned for day trips during our upcoming stay in Puglia later this month. Here's itinerary for husband and I:

Arrive Naples, pick up rental car and drive to Giovinazzo (my grandfather's birthplace) for first night. Hope to dine at White restaurant.
Spend following morning in Giovinazzo doing genealogy research and getting a feel for the town of my ancestors.

That afternoon--head towards Ostuni where we will stay four nights. Trying to decide whether to take in any towns on our way to Ostuni so we won't need to backtrack. Bari? Monopoli?

First night in Ostuni- take in passeggiata and have dinner- no reservations so far, but considering Cielo at La Sommita

Next AM- head to Lecce for the entire day-private tour. Lunch at LaZie. Return to Ostuni for late dinner

Days two and three in Ostuni- would like to make best use of time visiting nearby towns, but not sure how to combine. Would like to see Locorotondo, Martina Franca, Alberobello, Polignano a Mare, and Cisternino.

Last night in Ostuni- have reservation to dine at Il Frantoio- leaving time to explore the grounds beforehand, but we'd have that morning free- down time? Squeeze in another town?

Following stay in Ostuni, head to Matera for two nights- will tour Matera on arrival, and hope to visit Altamura from there. Would also love to see Craco while in Matera. No restaurants booked.

Leave for short stay in Basicalata ancestral town of Avigliano, then on to Sorrento for the last week to explore the Amalfi Coast. Aside from hotel, we have nothing reserved for Sorrento. Risky?

Should I be booking restaurants? I'm the sole planner this time around, and I thought unconstructed time might be best, but I am getting a bit nervous. We have never been South of Rome, and are very excited!
Thanks!
