Itinerary Fall 2016

Jump to last reply

I still have lots of planning time but I am almost set.
We will be driving down to South Florida to visit family just before we go and will return there to overcome jet lag at the end.

Sept 12 Fly MIA to LHR, LHR to AMS

Sept. 13 arrive Amsterdam--1 week
stay here: https://www.vrbo.com/465010

Sept. 20 Fly AMS to Bari, Puglia, Italy
Haven't decided yet about how we'll get from Bari to Lecce. Trying to save $$ by not renting car too soon. so probably bus or train???

Sept 20—27 Lecce, apartment--1 week
https://www.vrbo.com/1597574ha

Rent car in Lecce Sept 24th.

Sept 27, 28 Matera--2 nights Corte San Pietro http://www.cortesanpietro.it/ (on the high side budget wise but...)

Sept 29 Trovigno--1 night--agriturismo recommended by Valerie. Can't remember the name right now.

Sept 30, Oct 1,2 Trani--3 nights http://www.suitehometrani.it/bed_and_breakfast/?id=3&n=suite_home_porto in the Green room

Oct 3,4 TBD--This is my really confusing part. So many options. Today I am thinking of staying 2 nights in Bari and flying (really cheap--like 40euros each) to Florence and taking train to Lucca. Or drive to Naples (or anywhere that's about half way) and stay for the 2 nights and drive on to Lucca. Suggestions welcome!


Oct 5—19 Lucca, apartment--2 weeks https://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p1052049 (Good friends arrive around the 9th, staying in another apartment nearby, and will be with us in Piemonte)

Oct 19, 20, 21, 22,--4 nights La Morra, Piemonte. http://www.cortegondina.it/
Go to Truffle Faire in Alba (bucket list even though I may be overwhelmed with crowds)

Oct. 23—Nov. 13--3 Weeks Venezia, apartment https://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p6612399
Stayed here in 2015. Love the location!

Nov. 14—Dec 1 --3 weeks apartment Verona. We have good friends living there.

Fly back to Miami from Verona, one stop at FCO.

Thanks in advance for your comments!
