Not getting what you mean? " fly into Bari in the late evening then rent a car and drive to Bari."...why would you need to drive to Bari? Flying into Bari is the best jumping off point to maximize your time in Puglia.

Sorry I meant to say ; Fly into Rome in the morning then rent a car the next day and drive to Trani or fly into Bari and arrive in the late evening (adding 8 hrs to the trip) Then rent a car the next day. and drive to Trani the next day. Thanks for the info!

And where will you depart Italy?

If possible, fly to Bari.

You could easily spend a week, all your time in Puglia.

You didn't mention your interests....

Have you been to Rome?

Perhaps see Matera too from Bari.

Then hire the car, and see the Valle d'Itria.

You could depart from Bari or Brindisi.

Details from your travel proposal will consume much time from the calendar so do not waste time. Match your destination goals with your point of arrival and departure because one week will go fast..Do not try to visit to ell places enumerated in your proposal. You will be asking for trouble and travel deadline problem Reduce the scope of your travel ambitions and limit your vacation to one principal destination and stay there. .Have yo been to the proposed destinations listed in your request for assistance? Which destination would be new for you to visit and remain there for the duration of your vacation? Select accordingly and plan wisely.
