Trip Report Puglia, and a touch of Rome

Jump to last reply

My wife and I have been trying to get ourselves to Puglia for a few years, health issues interceding.
Why Puglia? Interesting history, relatively uncrowded, lots of coastline , good simple food, it just appeals to us.
The Puglia portion of the trip began with our Alitalia Comfort Economy flight from Boston to Rome , connecting to Bari. All went well. I wrote a separate report on the Air Travel Forumabout the use of disability assistance in Rome, as I have trouble standing for long periods of time due to a bad knee.

Our first stop was Masseria Montepaulo outside of the town of Conversano. A masseria is a fortified farm house, this one dates from the 17 century. Our plan here was simply to relax for a few days at a beautiful place with a pool and onsite restaurant serving typical Puglian foods. It was lovely, beautiful, comfortable, very little English spoken, but there is one man who does so and also put up with our attempts at Italian.
One can easily walk or bike into town.
