Where to stay in Bovino: In the heart of Bovino, Palazzo San Procopio offers a historic building, complete with some stone walls, and a wellness centre. It’s a stones throw from the many attractions of Bovino. If you don’d mind staying slightly out of the centre, Bed and Wine Rocco Zambri has some stunning views across vines and the valley.
Where to stay in Sant’Agata di Puglia: The lovely L’Antico Monastero offers a historcial setting and great views of the town, with moden spacious rooms. If you want great views, check in here!
How to get to Puglia and Foggia: If visiting by air, then flying into Bari is the most obvious option, although Brindisi airport further south also provides international flights and is a good starting point for a road-trip if you are exploring all of Puglia. For the hills and mountains of Puglia, flying into Bari and hiring a car will bring you here with a driving time of around two hours.

Book your rail tickets for Italy in advance and secure savings
In general, when travelling by train in Italy and Europe, the best value fares are those booked in advance.
With a variety of high-speed and slower trains serving Italy, you can usually find the right journey at the right price. I’d suggest searching for routes and tickets on Italiarail before travelling to secure discounts.
If you are planning to travel to Italy for more than one or two trips, consider purchasing an Italiarail travel rail pass which will allow savings on extended travels.
