Getting around
Local train stations are at Squinzano and San Pietro Vernotico that are connected to the National and European wide train network. The nearest ferry port is Brindisi just 25 kms away. The two regional airports are Brindisi ( 25 mins away) and Bari (90 mins away) Airport taxis are available at both locations, with a regular airport shuttle between the two. We do recommend using a hire car to experience more of all that Puglia has to offer. All major and many minor car hire companies are located at both airports.
