Apulia Visit: 2014-5
2014-06-16 - Highlights: Lecce (a Baroque confection), Alberobello (where you can see the conical-roofed trulli), Locorotonda (the pale local sandstone gives the old town a lovely glow), Gallipoli (go before noon to the fishermen mend their nets all around the harbor), Squinzano (a small town with a lovely main square where a faded image of Mussolini still appears on one of the buildings) the Negroamaro wines, Trani (a gorgeous port with an austerely beautiful cathedral, fishing and pleasure boats in the capacious harbor, and a spectacular public garden by the sea), and of course the very unique Castel del Monte. Less interesting: Bari, the capital. While I met many warm and friendly residents, Bari is still pretty gritty place and Bari\'s Centro Storico is to be avoided during siesta when the shops are closed. I was mugged at 3 in the afternoon; fortunately, the thief was unarmed (and ultimately unsuccessful, but not without a fight.)
