Trip to Venice, Bologna, Puglia

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip to Italy at the end of May, and I am looking for any advice, recommendations, or suggested changes to our itinerary, hotel choices, or rec'd sites that are "not to be missed" esp. those travelers who are familiar with Puglia. Any advice would be much appreciated!

May 25 - Arrive in Venice (Aqua Palace Hotel b/t the Rialto Bridge and St. Marks Square)
4 nights. Any restaurant recommendations? Would you recommend visiting Murano or Burano (for picture taking ops?)

May 29 - Drive from Venice through Ferrara to Bologna (Art Hotel Novecento) 2 nights
Day trip to Modena, Reggio Emilia, & Parma (Food experience!)

May 31 - LONG drive from Bologna through Bari to Polignano a Mare. (Should we skip seeing the little country of San Marino on the way? I know it is touristy, but wondered if the view makes it worth it.) (Staying at Hotel Grotta Palazzese for 2 nights; want to eat dinner at their cave restaurant one night, despite some negative reviews on T.A. Has anyone eaten here? Setting itself looks incredible.)

June 2 - Monopoli (Staying such a short distance from Polignano a Mare b/c we wanted to stay at Don Ferrante Dimore di Charme, only available these 2 nights; your thoughts?)

From Polignano a Mare and Monopoli would do day trips to:
Alberobello, Locorotondo, Martina Franca, Cisternino, Ostuni; any recommended changes/additions here? (Would like to go to Matera, but not sure there is time.)

June 4 - Drive to Lecce (Risorgimento Resort) 2 nights
Day trip to Ortranto, Gallipoli (Any suggestions of the best places to see or route would be appreciated!)

June 6 - Drive to Brindisi, fly back to Venice (overnight), fly home next day.
Any recommendations for best hotel to overnight before flight to US next morning? We'll arrive in Venice at 2:30pm.

We love quaint, different, interesting; love being near the water, taking a million pictures, and FOOD, of course!

Thank you for any advice/wisdom!
