Full description
From the convenient meeting point in Lecce, depart with your driver and guide in the direction of Otranto. Begin the guided tour on foot from the Aragonese Castle, built at the end of the 15th century with its towers and walls that protected the city. Discover the history of Otranto, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, overlooking the sea which is located at the easternmost point of the heel of Italy. During a guided tour of Otranto, discover the historical center with its ancient palaces and churches. From time to time you’ll catch glimpses of the village landscape meeting the famous crystal sea. Take the opportunity to enter the Cathedral of the Annunciation which houses one of the most beautiful mosaics in southern Italy, built in the second half of the 12th century and representing the tree of life. Continue to Gallipoli and explore this beautiful location at your own pace. Admire the historic center that preserves ancient buildings, beautiful baroque churches, and characteristic alleyways. Gallipoli has two areas, the modern center and the ancient village, located on a small island connected to the mainland by a masonry bridge surrounded by ancient defensive walls of the 1500s. Marvel at the beautiful scenery before departing on the return journey to Lecce.
