3 hours (or less) from Paris: Viva Italia! #1

Main piazza in Cisternino, one of many small hilltop villages and towns that dot the region.

Cisternino is a carnivore's fantasy: if you get wafts of barbecue that's because small butcher counters are encrusted in restaurants where you choose what you want and it will appear on your table sizzling and char-grilled to perfection.

Below: grilled sausages and local specialty bombette, beef (or pork) rolls stuffed with basil, speck bacon and cheese; entrecôte topped with arugula and a grated pecorino
