I want to visit the Puglia region as i loved all that i read about it. i am backpacking Italy from South to North in May this year. After reading most of the posts here it is really confusing. i see most of the people driving. But i dont really want to drive there alone. This is what i was thinking.
Day 2 - Stay in Bari and travel around ( Cathedral, Castle, Harbour )
Day 3 - Travel (Flixbus) to Matera and stay in Matera
Day 4/5 - travel to Leece (Flixbus) - Stay in Leece
Day 6- Back to Bari and stay in Bari
Day 7- Travel day - travelling to Rome. (train)
i am still struggling on the places to visit. Any suggestions are welcome. i love architecture. walking around small towns and foodie. Of course i love the beaches but not much of a water person
