My my... you remind me of one of my biggest regrets: never visiting Puglia in all the years I was in Italy. What was I thinking? Still not too late, of course...


Frank - You're right....It's never too late. Puglia is amazing; the food, the people and the land. You will love it there, I'm sure.


I am strongly considering Lecce as one of my stops when I visit Puglia, but can I ask what other places you recommend? I do not want to stay in a masseria because I like to be in a town or village where I can walk to dinner. I plan to stay on the coast for a few nights--probably in Monopoli, and I plan to visit Matera in Basilicata, so I am looking for one other place to stay probably 4 nights. So far am considering Ostuni and Lecce. Would Martina Franca be too small? I only need 2-3 good places to eat. What other towns with excellent quality restaurants do you recommend? thanks so much for any advice!


Hello Val - Both Lecce and Ostuni are good choices. I'm partial to Lecce between the two. Also, as you will be in Monopoli for a few nights, you could visit Ostuni and Martina Franca from there and then move down to Salento (the southernmost Province of Puglia) and Lecce, its capital and a lively city with many great eateries & wine bars, history and nightlife. Lecce is also a great base for exploring the Salento area.
