All set to go from Matera and my battery was dead, anyway I got a push start and carried on. Did not have any further problems with the battery so figured that I must have turned the ignition key one notch too far into “Park” which leaves some lights on thus flattening the battery. B roads all day mostly in poor condition.
I went via Alberobello to see the stone roofed houses called Trulli, tourists and tour groups everywhere.
From the Trulli I rode to a small farm near Sannicola which I used as my base to explore the area. Gallipoli has a very densely packed old town.
Leuca is the southernmost point of Italy’s boot heel. This coast has many beaches and is a popular place with the locals.
