Train from Bari to Lecce staying in Oniro Via Nicola Cataldi 2, Lecce. Apartment was a short walk from old town. It was spacious and breakfast was a ticket to get a coffee and a piece of cake/bread/croissant etc from a cafe round the corner. The room next to me had a shagging couple and she was very loud and seemed to be enjoying things.
Lecce is similar to Bari in that the old town is walled. Lecce had some good restaurants, and I had a good running area around the streets for my 5k build up. I started to use the vending machines here to get coffees. Decent and just 50 cents.
