Formation of a Plan

I've been reading
Insight Guides Southern Italy at night before I go to sleep.

How many people read travel guides before bed? How many read them at all.

Anyway - I've been doing this and have the beginnings of a plan for our trip.

Here's how it will play out:

Depart NJ on a Thursday.
Arrive Rome on a Friday - spend day in Rome.
Saturday morning depart for Puglia.

Still Fuzzy Part
A. Do we drive 1/2 way and find somewhere interesting to stay - perhaps on the Gargana Peninsula where I can visit Padre Pio's home town. I have a strange fascination with Padre Pio since we were in Rome for his Cannonization (right - that's the one where you become a saint ?)

B. Drive straight through to stay at Masseria Fantoio.

Okay - so we arrive at Ostuni on either Saturday or Sunday.

While we're there, I want to visit:

Martina Franca
Ostuni
The Trulli houses in that town with the really long name that I can't think of at the moment
Lecce
Some of Frederick's castles

I also wouldn't mind hanging out and doing not much of anything, so we'll see how that all progresses.

Fuzzy Part Again
A. Depart on Friday - stay somewhere interesting overnight, and arrive in Montalciono on Saturday - I'm leaning this way.
B. Depart on Saturday and drive straight through.

Okay - once I'm done with Puglia overview (and I'm almost there), I'll start figuring out Montalcino.

Wonder how long before I can contact rentals to make reservation.....
