Some of the rail journeys were too long but necessary. Food was ok but not generally very good. Enjoyed Lecce and Vieste. Vieste was the real Italy. Hotel at Lecce was a bit dated. Vieste’s hotel was good.

Enjoyed everything except the food which was poor for vegetarians and the lack of swimming pool in the 2 main hotels.

The food in the Vieste Hotel was not vey good and we felt we needed more meals out. The journey home was too long and neede to be broken into a further day
