Well, we like the Trani area. Great little seaside town that makes a good base to see sites like the awesome Grotto Castalana, etc. good seaside restaurants. Maybe go explore the Gargano Penensula? Pick up a Lonely Planet guidebook and do some reading.

All of the places suggested are great. I like Alberobello and Matera for unique sites, but Matera might be difficult to reach quickly without a car.
