    Ciro marina. Italian South Coast

    June 5, 2019 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 21 °C

    Lovely weather and a nice ride through the rolling countryside. In the four hour ride I don't think I saw one motorcycle which I thought very unusual for this trip. I did see a few more of those girls standing by the road, a bit more modestly dressed than those of yesterday but I don't think they were waiting for a bus.
    I chose this place as it is half way to Sicily from Matera and it is a small town with a beach front hotel which happens to be four star. So as I write this I'm being waited on in the restaurant by more staff than there are customers.
    The food is some of the best I've had. I love it.
    The photos are of the ride plus several from the hotel and it's surroundings as it is so nice.
    I needed to do a bit of work to the bike when I arrived as the chain needed cleaning and new grease after all the rain. So I sprayed it with a cleaner then wiped it with several rags during which my hands became very black. As I entered this posh hotel I tried to hide my black hands and smiled at the concierge who said Mr Sprot here is your passport.

    Ciro Marina

    June 1, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    After a slow start we are now making swifter progress west. We spent another night in Taranto and used the day to visit Martina Franca photos attached, this is where we changed buses to go to Alberobello. The old town on top of the hill was beautiful, lots of tiny winding streets opening to Piazzas. From Taranto to Policoro Marina it’s about 5km from the town but so sheltered, clean, cheap and with good facilities. Then a night in Cariati Marina, old, expensive, no facilities but old town, again up the hill, was pretty and latte’s cost €1 each! We are now back in Ciro Marina, we stopped here about the same time last year, but this time we might have to pay as have been asked to visit an office later, not sure where, the wave from the guy who helped us moor was fairly vague.Read more
