Italy Travel – Photos from Ostuni in Puglia

Ostuni Photo by Margie MiklasCittà Bianca, or the White City, is the nickname given to the Italian city of Ostuni in the southern region of Puglia. All the buildings in its historic district must be painted white and from a distance  the view of the city is a wondrous site.

    Ostuni!!!! Oh now I really am transported – from Brindisi to Carovigno to Ostuni. How much I loved going to the city where you couldn’t drive and having a quiet dinner. This is where I saw my first “wise guys,” something right out of Godfather (only this was before the big Don). Ostuni is magical and old and I loved the people who were so warm and welcoming. And they laughed at my terrible Italian but loved me for trying.

    I can see the men who laid those stone paths through the citta so many years ago. I was not nearly as tantalized by the path with the concrete overlay. I am sure it was necessary but still. . What did the lady think when you snapped her pic while she was taking in or putting out her wash? Are all Italians so very polite or perhaps resigned to the photography buffs taking snaps of them?Italy has amazing landscapes and architecture but it is the people that make it special.


  5. Great photos – they remind me of Greece and I guess there was probably some influence from there somewhere down the years! Definitely on my wish list so thanks for the inspiration!

    We attended a wedding in the Cathedral of Ostuni! We sat at a cafe table (pictured in one of your photos) and had a pre-nuptial drink while we waited…and waited…and waited for the bride to appear. Finally she arrived in a convertible with her father, and there was no way to turn the car around in the narrow square. Wish I could attach my photos of the occasion!

    We spent a week in Monopoli two years ago and daytripped all over the south, Ostuni was definitely a highlight! Such a gorgeous place!!
