10 Days in Puglia: The Ultimate Itinerary (First Time Visit)


The Best Itinerary for 9 or 10 days in Puglia

You’re planning to spend 10 days in Puglia and you’re looking for the best itinerary?

You’re at the right place!

In order to help you plan your stay, I have prepared for you this 9-10-11 days itinerary in Puglia that will allow you to discover the best places to visit of this beautiful Italian region.

During your trip, you will visit amazing places such as the pretty villages of Ostuni and Alberobello, Matera, the Baroque city of Lecce, as well as the stunning Gargano National Park.

In addition to the must-see attractions for each stage of your itinerary, I will also give you all my best tips and accommodation suggestions depending on your budget.

So, how to spend 10 days in Puglia? Where to stay?

Let’s find out!

1) Bari / Ostuni (2 days)

For your 10-day road trip in Puglia, you should land in Bari, the main airport of the region.

As a road trip obviously can’t be done without a car, you’ll need to pick up yours at the rental counter.

Personally, I always use rentalcars.com. It’s, in my opinion, the best car rental site!

Here is why:

  • It allows you to compare prices between each rental company: You will instantly see who is the cheapest or has the best customer reviews.
  • The full insurance protection ensures you get reimbursed in case of an accident or theft of your rental car (without having to take the rental company’s extremely expensive insurances!). Tested and approved, as they refunded me more than 1300 euros total! 😎
  • Free modification or cancellation if your plans change and you can’t visit Puglia!

And one last thing: Rentalcars also offers a best price guarantee. It’s simple, if you find a similar vehicle cheaper elsewhere, they will refund you the difference!

After these practical considerations, pick up your car and start your 10-day stay in Puglia by leaving Bari behind. Don’t worry, I’ll include a visit to Bari at the end of the itinerary!

Head to the first typical Puglian village to visit: Polignano a Mare. It’s about 40 minutes south of Bari. In Polignano, you can discover the historic center, known for its cliffside houses. There are several impressive viewpoints to admire them from.

You can also head down to the pebble beach, at the entrance to Polignano, to take the postcard picture that you see from all over the town. Allow 2 hours to visit Polignano a Mare.


Continue the first day of your 10-day Puglia road trip by visiting Monopoli, just a 15-minute drive from Polignano.

Here as well, it’s the historic center that’s worth a look. It’s very pleasant to wander on foot and admire the iconic monuments such as Charles V castle, Piazza XX Settembre, and the cathedral. It will take you about one hour for the visit.

To end the day, make your way to Ostuni, where you’ll be staying for the next two nights.

The town is located on a hilltop 40 minutes from Monopoli: with its whitewashed houses, it can be seen from afar! It immediately becomes clear why Ostuni is nicknamed “La Città Bianca,” the white city, as the goal of these white houses is to bring some brightness into the narrow streets.

To visit Ostuni, you’ll have no choice but to go on foot. You can start by going near the top of the village to see Ostuni Cathedral and the Episcopal Palace right next to it. They are the two main points of interest in the town.

If you’re interested, the palace houses a diocesan museum with numerous documents about local history.

Afterwards, you should go to the Church of Saint Mary. The spot offers a stunning panorama over the entire Itria Valley and the surrounding countryside.

By then, it’ll probably be time for an aperitif and dinner. You’ll find plenty of bars and restaurants around Piazza della Liberta, Ostuni’s main square where everyone gathers in the evening.

For a meal, if you fancy a good, hearty pizza that won’t break the bank, I recommend “L’Impasto Napoletano” pizzeria, only 200 meters away from the piazza.

And if you want to discover all the best things to do in Ostuni, you should read my other article: The 10 best places to visit in Ostuni.

After a good dinner, head to your accommodation in Ostuni for the night. You can find my list of the best places to stay in Ostuni a bit further down this article.


On the second day of your 10-day itinerary in Puglia, you should visit Alberobello, arguably the most famous village in the region!

Alberobello is a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its unique dwellings: the trulli, small circular-based houses with conical roofs. There are hundreds of them in Alberobello!

Wander around the village to observe them up close. Many have been converted into hotels, souvenir shops, and cafés/restaurants.

A tip: visit Alberobello early in the morning as it gets very touristy, with many buses arriving after 10 a.m. Parking lots fill up quickly and the streets can become crowded.

For all my best tips to plan your visit, you should read my dedicated article: How to visit Alberobello?

Continue the morning with 2 other villages to visit during your 10-day stay in Puglia:

  • Locorotondo: just a 10-minute drive from Alberobello. Considered as one of Italy‘s most beautiful villages, it features a lovely historic center. Here, you can spot several Cummerse, the typical houses of Locorotondo, with their sloping roofs made of flat tiles.
  • Cisternino: this village is about 15 minutes from Locorotondo. Plan about 1 hour for the visit of the old town and to the panoramic terraces overlooking Itria valley.

After a morning spent visiting villages, you should opt for a nature-focused afternoon with two possible options:

  • Torre Guaceto Nature Reserve, a 50-minute drive from Cisternino and 30 minutes from Ostuni. It’s the ideal place to spend a relaxing afternoon by the water and enjoy a swim.
  • The Torre Canne and Torre San Leonardo coastal dune park. Here you can enjoy several activities such as biking, or horseriding or simply go on a nice stroll.

At the end of the day, return to Ostuni for one last night.

Voyage Tips - Advice

As you have seen, this 10-day car journey in Puglia includes quite a few visits to historic centers.

Access to these centers is generally restricted to residents or they are a true labyrinth of narrow, one-way streets. Therefore, I recommend not entering these areas by car and always trying to park a bit beforehand. This will save you from getting frustrated behind the wheel and, more importantly, from getting a fine!

Where to stay in Ostuni

  • Hotel Tropical: Located 5 minutes by car from Ostuni and 10 minutes from the beach. Comfortable and colorful double rooms starting at 75€ per night, breakfast included. Strong points: proximity to Ostuni, friendly staff, private parking.
  • Grand Hotel Masseria Santa Lucia: About 10 minutes drive from Ostuni’s center. Conveniently situated in the countryside for quietness and near the seaside (direct pedestrian access from the hotel). Comfortable, bright double rooms with private terraces starting at 150€ (low season) to 250€ in high season, breakfast included. Strong points: the stunning swimming pool, spa, beachfront solarium, tranquil setting. This is the best choice for a relaxing and peaceful stay in Ostuni!
  • Masseria Salinola: Only 5 minutes by car from Ostuni, located in the tranquil countryside. The rooms and apartments are set in a beautifully renovated traditional building, retaining the original style. Cozy double rooms with tasteful décor starting from 300€ per night in high season, breakfast included. Strong points: the decor, the warm rustic charm, the lavish breakfast (I’m not exaggerating!), outdoor swimming pool, extremely welcoming staff. My favorite hotel for a romantic stay in Ostuni!

2) Lecce (3 Days)

For the second stage of your 10-day trip to Puglia, you will head to Lecce.

The road from Ostuni to Lecce passes through Brindisi, so you should definitely stop by for a quick visit.

It might not be an absolute must-see in Puglia, but since you’ll be passing by, it’s worth taking a look. You can stroll through the historic center, along the harbor, and also visit the MAPRI provincial archaeological museum.

After this short visit, continue your way to Lecce.

You should park your car at the parking lot next to Lecce cemetery. The rate is only €2 for the entire day and it’s situated just a hundred meters from the entrance to the old town, marked by the Porta Napoli. It’s the most convenient and cheapest option!

In Lecce, considered as THE baroque city of Italy, you will be able to admire numerous historic monuments. The city’s architecture is very harmonious thanks to the use of Lecce stone, a very soft limestone used in the construction of most of its buildings. It’s truly one of the cities you must visit on a road trip in Puglia!

First, I recommend heading to Piazza Sant Oronzo, Lecce’s huge main square.

This is where you’ll find the tourist office and you should go there to get a map of the city’s best places to visit.

At the Piazza, you can admire the well-preserved Roman amphitheater. There are also many cafes and restaurants if you want to have a drink or eat a little something.

You should then head to Piazza del Duomo, one of Puglia’s largest and most impressive squares.

On Piazza del Duomo, you will find Lecce Cathedral (Duomo = cathedral in Italian), which you can visit if you wish to. On the square, you can also admire the bell tower, the bishop’s palace, and the seminary palace.

Continue your day with one of Lecce’s most beautiful monuments: the famous Santa Croce Basilica with its facade featuring a beautiful rose window and hundreds of sculpted details. It took more than a century to build! The interior is well worth a visit for its 17 altars and, especially since the visit is free of charge.

To end your afternoon, simply wander in the old town as you please, discovering Lecce’s numerous palaces and churches located all over the city.

Spend your first night in Lecce.

The next day, for your second day in Lecce, you will have a slightly more cultural program with visits to 2 museums:

  • The MUST: the historical museum of Lecce mainly dedicated to the history of the city, even if it also features a painting exhibit and a contemporary art gallery.
  • The Faggiano Museum: an old house over 2000 years old that was home to Messapian, Romans and Templars. The historical richness of their home was discovered by the owners during renovations, so they decided to transform it into a small museum displaying the objects found in the foundations.

And if you don’t mind visiting yet another museum, you can then head to Charles V Castle with its monumental walls. It houses the papier-mâché museum, a typical activity in Lecce.

To end the day, you can opt for an unusual visit: Lecce cemetery.

The location is known for its numerous baroque tombs, also made of Lecce stone. Their architecture is truly impressive, similar in style to Milan‘s famous Monumental Cemetery. The ambience is peaceful and not at all gloomy, so it’s really a nice place for a stroll.

Spend a second night in town.

For your 3rd day in the baroque city, you will actually go explore the surroundings of Lecce.

And good news, after spending 2 days exploring the city, today you will enjoy some beach time and seaside strolls!

The first destination for the day is Torre dell’Orso, a 35-minute drive from Lecce.

There, you will find a large sandy beach and crystal-clear waters, perfect to take a bit and relax a bit! At the end of the beach, you’ll find the Due Sorelle, 2 very photogenic faraglioni featured on every postcard of the town.

For the best view, you should go to the top of the cliff located on the right side of the beach.

Just 5 minutes from Torre dell’Orso, you should also make a stop at Torre Sant’Andrea. Here too, you’ll have opportunities to take beautiful photos of faraglioni. Don’t hesitate to take the time for a swim, it’s the dream spot!

Torre Sant Andrea

Finally, head to Otranto, your last stop of the day, only 20 minutes from Torre Sant’Andrea. Wander through its historic center to discover the castle and its walls and Otranto Cathedral.

Finish your day by the sea, relaxing on Otranto’s beach or one of the nearby ones.

Spend one last night in Lecce.

Accommodation in Lecce

  • Casa Balmes: Located just 100 meters from the Santa Croce Basilica and 400 meters from the Duomo. Spacious and comfortable double room starting from 80€ per night, but you might find cheaper deals. In March, we only paid 100€ for 3 nights in a deluxe suite (breakfast included)!

Strong points: the super location, a rooftop terrace with a view of the cathedral, the attentive staff.

3) Matera (1 day)

For the 3rd stage of your 10-day road trip in Puglia, you will head to Matera in the morning.

But before you arrive in Matera, there are some must-see stops along the way:

  • The city of Taranto, renowned for 2 sites – Its castle (free guided tours every two hours starting at 9:30 am) and the National Archaeological Museum. The latter is really interesting, modern, and well-arranged. It’s a great place to learn more about the history of Taranto and Puglia.
  • Puglia canyon, that runs through several villages, splitting some in half. Massafra, Castellaneta, Laterza, and Ginosa offer the most beautiful views of the canyon. These villages are very peaceful, and it’s pleasant to stroll around.

After these stops, continue your way to Matera.

The city is not part of the Puglia region but of the neighboring Basilicata region. However, as it’s close to Taranto and Bari, it would be a shame not to include Matera in your 10-day trip to Puglia, as it’s one of the oldest cities in the world!

Matera is globally renowned for its Sassi, ancient cave dwellings carved into the rock, with the first inhabitants dating back to the Paleolithic era.

Since then, the habitations have evolved but have always been occupied. Some of these caves have even been converted into rock churches by monks seeking refuge.

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the site features nearly 3,000 caves and churches!


To explore Matera on foot and not miss any attractions, start by visiting the tourist office to grab a map of the city.

They suggest 3 different routes (of varying lengths) to visit the city. Not matter which one you opt for, you will start your visit at Piazza del Duomo.

Here is the itinerary I recommend for the afternoon:

  • Piazza del Duomo and the cathedral, where you can appreciate a great view over the Sassi from the square
  • The church of San Pietro Caveoso, perched on the edge of the ravine
  • Chiesa della Madonna de Idris, a perfect example of a rock church, directly carved into the rocks
  • Visit the Museo della Casa Grotta di Vico Solitario to see the interior of a traditional Sassi
  • The Convincinio di Sant Antonio
  • Palazzo Lafranchi
  • The Piazzetta Pascoli lookout point
  • The National Archaeological Museum
  • Tramontano Castle

At the end of the walk, in will probably be the end of the afternoon and the the city start to lit up, giving you the chance to take really stunning photos!

4) Gargano (3 days)

For the 4th stage of your 10-day trip in Puglia, you will explore the Gargano National Park, Italy’s largest natural park.

But let’s not jump ahead. Before heading to Gargano, as you leave Matera, I highly recommend stopping at the Belvedere della Murgia. It’s about a 10-minute drive from the city exit and offers the most breathtaking view over the Sassi of Matera!

To reach Gargano from Matera, you have a bit of a drive as it takes roughly 2 hours to get to Manfredonia, the gateway to Gargano.

Then, add another 1h15 to reach Vieste, the most beautiful town of Gargano and the perfect place to stay during your 3 days in the national park.

The road from Manfredonia to Vieste is absolutely stunning, as you’ll be driving along the coastline and enjoying magnificent panoramas.

This was my favorite drive during my road trip in Puglia!

Take your time to travel this route as there are plenty of photo opportunities. And if the weather is warm enough, you’ll also find beautiful coves to enjoy a swim break.

Once in Vieste, spend your afternoon strolling through the historic center. And why not opt for a boat trip to discover the surrounding sea caves?

A boat tour in Gargano is one of the best activities to do during your trip to Puglia.

Vieste Gargano
Vieste Gargano

After a restful night in or near Vieste, today I suggest a lovely scenic route that connects Vieste to Peschici.

On the way, you will for sure notice strange seafront constructions, the trabucchi. This very ingenious system of ropes and nets was used for fishing. Some are still in use, and a few have been converted into restaurants serving delicious fresh fish.

Peschici is a picturesque village known mainly for its historic center and castle, offering views over the beach and the entire coast.

After Peschici, take the road uphill to Vico del Gargano. With its narrow streets and charming stone houses, this medieval village is one of Italy’s most beautiful.

And if you’re visiting Puglia with your lover, it’s worth noting that Saint Valentine is the town’s patron, and there’s even a ‘kissing alley’ in Vico del Gargano!

On your walk, you will pass by Palazzo Bella, the castle, and several churches including Santa Maria Pura and San Giuseppe.

To end the day, head to Lake Varano, one of the largest lakes in Southern Italy.

In this bucolic and tranquil area, you can spot numerous birds such as herons or pink flamingos. Boat trips are also organized there. If you wish, you can stay until sunset, as that’s when Lake Varano is at its most beautiful.

Lake Varano Gargano
Lake Varano Gargano

Return to spend a second night in Vieste or nearby.

Today’s morning plan includes a pleasant hike in the Umbra Forest, a protected nature reserve in the heart of Gargano National Park.

There are several trails that will allow you to discover the area’s typical fauna and flora, including famous wild orchids that attract botanists from around the world. As the trails might not be well-marked, you should really pick up a map at the visitor center.

After the hike, take a 50-minute drive in your rental car to reach the village of Sant Angelo, recognized as one of the most important religious centers in Gargano and Puglia.

The Via dei Longobardi that runs through the village was part of a sacred road leading from Spain to Jerusalem and was traversed by numerous pilgrims.

These pilgrims also stopped at the Sanctuary of Archangel Michael, a church within a cave that you can visit. Located in the Rione Junno neighborhood, it’s listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

In Monte Sant Angelo, you should also go see:

  • The Norman-Swabian castle, for a panoramic view over the entire Gargano up to the Gulf of Manfredonia
  • Santa Maria Maggiore church
  • The Gargano popular arts and traditions museum
  • The baptistery of San Giovanni in Tumba, also called the tomb of Rothari
  • L’Antico Forno Frisoli bakery to stock up on delicious typical biscuits from the region! 🙂

To learn more about the best places to visit in Gargano, you should have a look at my other article: The Best Places to Visit in Gargano National Park.

From Monte Sant Angelo, continue to Bari for the night. It will take you almost 2h to get there.

Depending on the duration of your morning hike in the Foresta Umbra, you might have time to stop in Trani. The city is on the way and will give you the opportunity to admire its superb cathedral by the sea.

Where to Stay in the Gargano
