27 May to 7 June in Puglia - ideas & tips please!

Recommended Posts

We come to Puglia on Monday 27 May and will stay until Friday 7 June. Yay!

As well as sign on the dotted line for our little casolare near Ceglie (and do all the boring and frankly terrifying formalities of opening bank accounts etc), we want to see more of Puglia and show it off to our friend and our teenage son. There won't be much we can do on the house itself on this visit - we won't even be staying there.

Any suggestions?

We love... (well, the adults do anyway, I can't pretend our 13 year old will be overly impressed) 
Antiques and vintage furniture / homeware
Eating out
Puglian wine!
History & old towns
Any events that will take place, including flea markets, food markets etc.

Thank you!

Kim :-)

Hi Kizzy,

On 2nd June there is an antique and collectors market in Grottaglie.  One every sunday in Taranto, also there is one on 2nd June Antique market Piazza Garibaldi.

Ceglie weekly market is every Saturday morning, as is Ostuni

You will just miss Cantine aperte but you could look it up to discover many of the wine producers in the area.

You can't go wrong eating out in Ceglie but many of the coastal restaurants are already up and running for seafood, also many seaside beach clubs.

Walking the Acquadotto (or a part of it) www.aqp.bike should provide more info.

I'm sure other members will add to the list....

Enjoy your time in Puglia!

First Sunday of each month there is an "antique" market in San Vito, however the definition of antique differs from the UK so it is more of a Flea/Junk market.

You will miss the Ostuni antique market - that takes place every 2nd Sunday and Martina Franca has one on the 3rd Sunday.

Cisternino has a general market on Monday mornings and Alberobello has a market on Thursday morning.
