Map of southern Puglia

Flights from The North will probably require a connection. BA and Germanwings fly to Puglia (Bari) via London or Cologne respectively. Again, Alitalia may also be an option from Manchester or Edinburgh but requires stops at Paris and Rome. These change-overs are generally very easy and relatively relaxed.

Another alternative is to fly directly into Rome (approx 6 hours drive) or Naples (approx 4 hour drive). Easyjet flies from Edinburgh, Liverpool, Bristol and London, whilst Ryanair flies from Edinburgh, Glasgow, East Midlands, Manchester and London.

Trains & Buses:

The trains run throughout the region and are generally both cheap and reliable. Brindisi to Galatina takes approximately 1 hour (change at Lecce). From Bari to Galatina takes approximately 2 hours (again, change at Lecce). The train station in Galatina is approximately 15 minutes walk from the property.
