Audrey and I are off to Salento today. We have a Swiss Air flight from SFO to Zurich to Rome. As per usual, we'll spend the night in Fiumicino, the port town 5 minutes from the Rome Airport and then take an Alitalia flight the next morning to Brindisi. We'll pick up our prepaid rental car at the airport from Auto Europe and head to our regular apartment on the Piazza del Duomo in Otranto. Here's a picture of Otranto from the air. The arrow points to our apartment with its terrace overlooking the bay. Sigh . . . . we can't wait for the long, early morning, languorous swims in the warm waters of the Adriatic. And a hearty hello to our friends and co-authors of SALENTO BY 5, Carlo, Lucia and Luciana! . . . And to you dear reader, you are invited to return often to this blog for information about new discoveries, changes and current updates to the recommendations contained in our book about Salento.
