What’s the Best Way to Get Around Puglia?
Visiting Puglia next year? It might be a good idea to plan your trip ahead of time and figure out the little details that you may overlook otherwise – like where to stay in Puglia, or how to get around the region.
There are so many amazing places to visit (particularly areas like Ostuni, Lecce, Polignano a Mare, and Alberobello) that we’re sure that you won’t want to stay in the same area throughout your trip. While it’s important to put some thought into where you’re going to want to be for the majority of your stay (i.e. where you’ll be sleeping), it’s also good to know where you’ll want to travel to and how you can get there.
What’s the best mode of transportation?
Most people will find that to get around and travel long distances, a car is the best choice. Renting a vehicle can be an excellent idea for a variety of people going on vacations in Puglia, mainly because it gives so much freedom and is generally the best way to cover a lot of ground.
If you’re only planning on staying within the same area during your trip you may want to rent a vespa instead, to explore everything at a slower pace. This often helps you to get where you need to be, while also giving you a better chance to take in the region’s beauty. It’s not ideal for long distance trips though, so it’s often best to take this into consideration.
Trains as busses are available in many of the region’s hotspots, but these aren’t usually the best option for those who hope to travel around quite a bit. Since most people choose to reside in the heart of the region and explore all the beautiful towns and villages outside of it at their leisure, there’s likely to be many areas that aren’t on public routes and could get overlooked as a result.
Plan out your trip
A great idea for anyone who’s planning on visiting the region is to think about how they’re going to spend their time here. Often, individuals can save a great deal of time, effort, and money (particularly in terms of travel) just by planning out an itinerary to follow beforehand.
Think carefully about what places you’re going to want to see. Most people who visit come through the airport in Bari, so it might be worth looking at what there is to see and do in this city, as well as checking out what’s on offer in the surrounding areas. You could just as easily arrive in Bari and travel to your preferred destination, and go on your journey from there.
Going on tours around Puglia alone isn’t a bad idea at all, but it can often be worthwhile to trust a team of experts to take care of your Puglian adventure, so that you can have the best possible experience. In most cases, you’ll find that a good company can offer so much, which is why we’d encourage you to consider our tours if you’re planning on visiting Puglia in 2021.
