Would you recommend Sicily only or Puglia also for a 14-day trip?

Jump to last reply

We will be traveling to southern Italy for a 14-day trip in late September to early October. We are currently planning to spend the entire time in Sicily, but we are trying to decide whether we should instead fly into Brindisi and spend a few days in Puglia and Matera before driving down to Sicily. We will be flying home from Catania.

We have visited much of the rest of Italy on a number of other trips over the years, and loved all of them, but we have never been south of the Amalfi Coast. It is quite possible that if we don’t go to Puglia on this trip, we won’t have the opportunity to come back another time. We tend to keep busier and not travel as slowly on trips like this as perhaps would be best. Although we like Roman and Greek ruins, we find that we can overdose on them if we see too many on a particular trip.

What would you recommend? If you do think we should include Puglia, how many days would you suggest spending before heading to Sicily?

Thanks very much,

Len
