Week 6 – Visitors and more sightseeing

  • A full on week of sightseeing with the Campbells and Hughes. Weather was great and a big effort on our part to lift the Italian economy.

  • The visitors headed for the Amalfi coast and we had a few days of domestic chores and lying on the beach.

  • On Sunday we drove up to Bari – it’s the biggest city in Puglia – we did not know what to expect but were very pleasantly surprised by the Centro Storico¬† dominated by a 10th century Norman castle and a number of serious cathedrals and churches. We could not do them all so will be going back when we get more visitors in July.
