We left Alberobella this morning after witnessing the fun run and visited a few nearby villages.
I’m pleased we booked to stay there. Alberobella is a very interesting village but keep in mind that it is touristy. Arrive late in the afternoon when most the visitors are leaving.
We then stopped in Locorotonda which is another very nice village.
When visiting a church we happened upon a Christening. A little girl named Georgia. She was very good but after awhile got grizzly and cried. So Nonna to the rescue. She came forward out of her seat. Squeezed some drops into a dummy and pushed it in the baby’s mouth. Instant quiet. Sedation works!
As we drove we got closer the sea. This is the Golf of Taranto the bit between the point and the heel of Italy’s boot.
Arriving in Matera was breath taking.
