Coastal Puglia--drives and walks

Jump to last reply

I have read many Puglia reports and did not see this, but my apologies if I missed it. I think DH and I will rent a car in order to explore the coastline of southern Puglia between Gallipoli and Otranto (coming from Lecce in late May). Prior to that, we will visit Matera, and after that we will stay on the coast south of Bari (visiting trulli from there, where I also expect to do some nice walks but I think I have found a good source for info on that). I am looking for descriptions of any experiences you may have had of walking along the coast in any of the numerous natural areas that dot the coast. I am exploring the parks.it website, but there is no substitute for good first-hand reports. Our time is too limited to just wander, even though I know it is a small area.
This will be our first driving experience in Italy, and neither of us like driving, navigating, or parking. I realize this is not the most difficult area to drive in, but I have also read your reports--I know getting lost and otherwise frustrated is likely. I'd like to make sure the destination is worth the aggravation, so I am looking for the most dramatic coastal scenery and the best trails. Thank you in advance for your advice, and thank you for inspiring my travels!
