Escape - Early spring in southern Italy - CycleBlaze

Escape

The German winter is long. And we are impatient to get started with the cycling season. Once again we review the map of southern Europe, looking for a land of early spring sunshine and mild temperatures, not too hilly and not too flat, good food.... We decide on Apulia, southern Italy, the heel of the boot.

I'm not particularly keen on long car trips but, in this case, taking the car with the bicycle rack seems to be the best solution. The train connections from Munich to Apulia are terrible.

To make the drive more enjoyable, we plan to visit a friend in South Tirol and to stop off in Florence and Assisi on the way. Once in Apulia, we expect it shouldn't be too difficult to find a Bed & Breakfast where we can safely leave our car for a few weeks while we cycle.

And that is exactly what we did.
