Cosimo and Antonella pick us up at the Airport we had a late flight and decided not to hire a car they took us directly to the house cost 50 euros very reasonable we thought . Got the train to bari central then the airport train shuttle on our way back dead easy and cheap,in fact no need to hire a car train was easy,we went to polignano ( great place)and Ostuni all by train Place was very clean and had a great roof terrace with views of all the cathedrals in Monopoli Great Place to stay Many thanks Cosimo and Antonella
