Where I stayed
Our plan is to stay in Palermo for two nights, then to Trapani (western Sicily) for a night, then fly to Bari, Puglia. Once we arrive in Bari we will pick up our rental car and cruise Puglia. We do not have any plans or reservations until September 13 when we will be staying in a small town call Pacentro.
We were found Pacentro because we wanted a small town closer to Rome the day before we return the rental car. We found the town by zooming in on Google maps, it looked like a small hill town in the state of Abruzzo. We saw pictures of the town on Google images but could not find any mention in the Lonely Planet guide or much on the Internet. We read on Wikipedia that there is a club in Detroit for people from Pacentro. We found their web page and we sent a generic email to 15 of the members. One lady replied to us and put us in touch with her cousin Carmine who runs a B&B there. We will be staying with her family the night before we head to Rome. We are off to Palermo and we will update from there soon.
