We have spent time in Taranto, much of which is quite run down. It has several museums and a castle. The Ethnographic Museum and Castle had free guides to show us round, but as it was all in Italian we struggled to understand much of what was clearly very interesting.
We used the train to get out to see the trullie houses in Alberobello and Locorotondo, at least that was the plan. But the journey to Alberobello took four and a half hours, it’s a long explanation ….. replacement bus was involved! So the time we had was limited and we just saw Alberobello.
