Tuscany and Puglia

Jump to last reply

Traveling to Italy and Paris Oct 2 to Oct 24. We are planning on spending Oct 3 - 10 in Tuscany (staying in Anghiari and taking day trips), then Puglia until Oct 16, then flying to Paris on the 16th (from Brindisi I think). Back to California on the 24th from Paris. My questions are: Should we drive to Puglia (stopping somewhere overnight), or take the train straight to Lecce or Brindisi and rent a car when we get there? Given the time frame, are we giving ourselves enough time to experience Puglia? Or should we save it for another trip? And, if we choose only 2 places to stay in Puglia (we'll have a car), do Lecce and Otranto sound reasonable as a base for day trips? I've read all the Puglia threads... seems like there is so much to see a (and eat) there. Thanks for your input.
