But it was definitely not in a way that I would want. We arrived in Polignano a Mare and I was still feeling miserable from whatever illness I had contracted, so moving just wasn't a thing that was going to happen.

Lots of little villages only about 5 mins apart (by train). There's older school kids on the train. Don't ...

It's a picturesque village that is another World UNESCO heritage site for its unique "trulli" houses that have cone shaped roofs.
