I know I'm getting a little repedative, but ever since I saw this place on a TV show I have wanted to visit it in real life, so this was our chance as its only a short train trip from Bari. It's a picturesque village that is another Unesco heritage site for its unique "trulli" houses that have cone shaped roofs.
The history behind them is, once the whole town where just of trulli and being typical Italian - they were designed ...

... We drove to Santa Severina which is a town of just over 2000 people. Drove up the hill in fading light and rain and had a look around, there was a castle from the 1100s and the views fabulous hope the pictures do it justice, made my day.

Dinner in hotel, tomorrow we leave the mainland for Sicily, see you in about a ...

... arches etc. – all very white. However later on, when I said my usual 'Bon Giorno' to a little old man today, he said to me (in Italian), ‘your smile brought joy to my life’; there you go. There were also great views down to the valley and eventually the sea from here. Nice place but does seem a bit poor.

... permitted. In fact it turned out to be free!!! Eventually we had a nice lunch at a Michelin listed restaurant called Trullo D’Oro. Nice ravioli and veal escallops. Yes we are trying to cut down. Another highlight was face timing Olivia as everyone was at Matthew’s place for Nana’s birthday. Wish we could also be there. Lovely during day but it is cooling down again now.
