Two days in Puglia, South Italy

Hey hey lovers!

Happy Furahi day! 

I am so excited this month. I have  a full travel itinerary, back to back,  and I would like to take you  with me to some amazing places.

Our first stop should be South Italy…

In the beautiful region of Puglia. I am only dropping by for the weekend and I have already  planned some amazing things to do.  Since this is going to be a quick trip, see what I have in my travel guide.

Saturday:

♥  A visit to Alberobello and it’s trulli

Alberobello, is a strange and picturesque destination which is a must visit for everyone coming to Puglia. I have been to Alberobello before but why not try it again?  The small town has been made a UNESCO World Heritage site for its unusual districts of Trulli . The characteristic white-washed conical-roofed houses of the area. During summer I would love to  really stay in one of these. Reminds me of the hats we have back home. I find them so cool! But since I am only passing by for appointments, I choose to bite my lower lip as I look foward to next time when opportunity presents itself.

See the sunset in Polignano a Mare

Located 45 minutes away from Alberobello, Polignano offers all the right ingredients for a perfect day out. The tiny old town, reached through the Porta Vecchia gate, combines charming, whitewashed streets with beautiful old churches such as the Chiesa Matrice. I might find myself getting lost in the winding streets, but I won’t mind at all. I mam looking foward to reaching one of the three panoramic terraces offering breathtaking views of the beautiful Adriatic Sea.  I will then wind up my day with a dinner at Grotta Palazesse which apparently (they say it is one of the best cave restaurants in the world.)

 Sunday:

♥ A visit to Lecce

My friends and I are currently looking for a make-up artist for a function we have mid-year. Where else would be the best place to go to than the capital of Puglia itself-Lecce.  After our appointment, I plan to get lost in the city.Lecce is a city known for its baroque buildings. In the central Piazza del Duomo, the Cattedrale di Lecce has a double facade and a bell tower. The Basilica di Santa Croce features sculptures and a rose window. Nearby are the Sant’Oronzo Column, a Roman column topped with a bronze statue of the city’s patron saint, and the sunken Roman amphitheater. Ii will be my first time to see this so I am very eager!

Once am done with Lecce, I think I will be literally running to catch my plane back to Rome.

This will be a short trip but I think I got it all planned.

If you would like to see how I do all this in just two days, dontchu forget to follow me on my Instagram and Facebook.

See you loves! Catch up soon as we visit Brussels and Athens 💃🏾😍  Please drop in any suggestions of the places I need to visit while in Belgium and Greece.

Love,

cvr
