Friday Welcome Dinner Party: "Seaside Chic" Saturday Wedding Festivities: "Dressy Cocktail"
The weather looks great! It should be highs in the 70s and lows in the 60s Fahrenheit. Perfect weather, in our opinion! Bring a jacket for the evenings just to be safe.
Good news, people, we get an extra hour the weekend of the wedding! Italian daylight savings time starts the middle of the night between Oct 28 and Oct 29.
BARI or BRINDISI When booking your travel you can either: (1) Book one flight package on your favorite website (you will connect, Bari/Brindisi is not direct); (2) Fly to Rome on the airline you are loyal to & book a separate ~$100 flight to Bari or Brindisi (Ita Airways is your best bet for this); (3) If you hate airplanes you can fly to Rome and then take a fast train to Bari (~4 hrs) via Rail Ninja.
Tips are not customary in Italy. Save your cash and just enjoy!
Renting a car will make your life easier and will allow you to explore all the Puglia towns nearby. You can search your favorite car rental place (Hertz, Dollar, Budget), or try AutoEurope. NOTE: MAKE SURE YOU ASK FOR AUTOMATIC unless you want to drive a stick. NOTE: Visit your local AAA location to get a European Driver's Permit. Car services or taxis are your best bet if you do not want to drive. Uber is scarce / non-existent in this part of Italy.
