Yes, this morning we’re packing our bags with all manner of cameras, video and still, computers, cell phones, and, oh yeah, some clothes—before heading out to beautiful Bella Baita to await the arrival of the world’s top cyclists competing for the pink in tomorrow’s 10th stage of the Centenary Giro d’Italia.
Yep, the tenth. You know, the one Lance Armstrong twittered, “where the real giro starts.”
I know, I know: Wandering Italy has been on a Puglia love-fest lately. We’ve posted a video about the incredible Messapian artifacts in the Archaeological museum in Manduria and a map of my favorite city for Italian seafood (and a very evocative old town of narrow streets and interesting courtyards). See our new Gallipoli Italy map.
