How to spend the perfect week in Apulia
An itinerary for squeezing the most out of one week in the Puglia region of Italy
Here is an itinerary that takes in all the best of Apulia (called Puglia or Le Puglie in Italian), the stiletto heel of the Italian 'boot" and the best concentration of all that makes Southern Italy great.
There is a trick to fitting all you can into such a short time here: A week lasts nine days (figuring you leave home on Friday night for your overnight flight, and you don’t return until the following Sunday). » more
Here's the basic itinerary. It's pretty packed—a lot of early morning wake-ups, a lot of churches and museums—because there's simply so much to see and do.
Don't forget to read the "Foolish Assumptions" page about how these itineraries are meant to work. One assumption I make in this itinerary is that you will be exploring Apulia by car—far better than trains and buses for regional travel, especially to get the most out of hopping from town to town and visiting vineyards, villages, isolated castles in the countryside. Have fun!
Day 1 - Getting to TK
Day 1-TK Town: TK sights
Day 9-Flying Home
The Pantheon.TK getting there. Most transatlantic flights land in Rome in the early morning (around 8am), and by the time you get you bags, get downtown, switch to a train to TK
Day 2 - TK
Day 9 - Heading home
(Remember: if you have a 3pm flight, you have to check in by 1pm, which means you have to head to the airport by noon, which means you have to leave your hotel by 10:30... The day's pretty much shot by the time you wake up.)
