Getting to Ostuni

Information on getting to Ostuni:

Getting to Ostuni depends a lot on where you are coming from. I come from Dublin and I have done it several ways. There is a railway in Ostuni and the main Bari – Lecce motorway passes Ostuni about 6km from it.

Ryanair fly from London Stanstead to Brindisi
London Stansted 17:15:00 21:05:00 Arrive Brindisi
Brindisi 21:30:00 23:35:00 Arrive Stansted

There are direct trains from Rome, Bologna, Milan etc, and the railway station in Ostuni is about 1km east of Ostuni town. It would be necessary to get a taxi from the station to the town. The best way to organise a train trip in Italy is to use their web site TrenItalia All connections and times are given, all you need to know is the origin and destination.

Travelling by road is straight forward as there are motorways (Autostrada) that go from all airports to near Ostuni. The turn for Ostuni from the motorway from Bari to Brindisi/Lecce is clearly marked, in fact there are 4 possible exits so even if you missed one the next would do fine. The best exit to take, i.e. the shortest distance (6km) in the exit displayed as (Ostuni/Porto Nova).. For all journey planners there is always Google Maps or the excellent route finder Via Michelin

Ostuni is easily accessable today with Ryanair flying to Brindisi. Brindisi is the closest airport to Ostuni, but there are many more options available depending on where you are flying from. And Ryanair are not the only airline to fly to Bari or Brindisi, check out Puglia Airports for details of other airlines flying there.

COME ON MICHAEL WHY NOT DUBLIN!!

Coming from Dublin, Ireland, I have gone to Ostuni many ways trying to get the right combination between travel time and cost..
Probably the fastest is to fly to Naples with Aer Lingus and drive to Ostuni. The Drive to Ostuni takes about 3 hours or less if you go a little bit faster than you should.. Car hire from Hertz usually works out well, but flights from Aer Lingus are not as competitive as the RyanAir ones.

Ive gone Ryanair to Ciampino Rome, which takes about 5hours but you can get cheaper flights..

Tolls cost about €20 and petrol €40 from Rome and about 2/3 of both from Naples.
