General Information:
What is the nearest airport?
Brindisi, Italy (Airport code = BDS). Remember that your arrival date is Tuesday, May 29, 2018. If you are flying from the U.S., you need to make flight arrangements departing (no later than) on May 28. Your departure date is Thursday, June 7th.
Once your fPostcardZ from Victoriainal payment is made, you will be asked to provide your travel arrangements.

Where are we staying?
A luxury accommodation in Lecce’s historical center.
Masseria Provenzani in the countryside a few kilometers from Lecce .

Can I have my own room and bathroom?
Yes, single rooms are available but limited. All of the rooms are en-suite, i.e., they have their own bathrooms.

Do I need a passport/visa?
Yes, you will need a current passport for travel to Italy. Be sure it is valid for at least 6 months AFTER your the date of departure from Italy. No visas are required to visit Italy.

Who should I contact for more information?
Your hosts are:
U.S. – Victoria De Maio, postcardsfromvictoria(at)gmail(dot)com
Puglia – Ylenia Sambati, info(at)yltourpr(dot)com

How do I communicate with family/friends?

The accommodation in Lecce has telephones and free WiFi.
Masseria Provenzani has free WiFi (in public areas) and a computer for checking emails but no telephones.
In either case, be sure to check your data plan/make arrangements with your local cell phone provider before you leave..

What should I bring to wear?
In spring, the weather in Puglia should be temperate and comfortable. Bring comfortable clothing and layers. It’s crucial to have comfortable walking shoes. Look at the itinerary and pack accordingly.

Are there laundry facilities?
Laundry service is available for a surcharge. There is a washer (no dryer) at the Masseria. (Clothes are hung dry in Italy.)

Should I bring cash and how much?
Italy uses the euro and although ATM’s are located at airports and towns, to avoid wasting precious time, I suggest that you do bring some euros with you upon arrival for gratuities, souvenirs, incidentals, etc. I recommend that you bring (at least) 300 EUR in small bills and change.

What if I have a special need?
Diet: If you have dietary restrictions, please be sure to indicate on the Registration Form so that the cooks can be advised in advance.
Medications/prescriptions: Please be sure to bring your medications and prescription.
Physical: Please note that traveling in Italy does involve walking and standing on hard and often uneven surfaces, stairs and paths which can be challenging for anyone with physical restrictions.

What about gratuities?
Gratuities are NOT included in the cost of your trip. When eating at a local trattoria or ristorante, you will be asked to leave a little grazie, 1-2 euros per person. For local guides and drivers, 1-2 euros and 2-3 euros/day for cook(s) and maid(s) is recommended. Budget recommended: $75-$100USD (per person).
