8 Days/7 Nights – FROM OTRANTO (APULIA)

Item Description

Puglia’s coastal trail, from Otranto to Gagliano del Capo, is a perfect synthesis of all the wonders Apulia has to offer: epic views, amazing swimming spots, unknown villages waiting to be explored and windswept, undisturbed nature. After an enchanting circular walk among oranges and olive trees, you leave Otranto to follow a red-earth colored trail a few meters from the sea, leading towards the lighthouse of Punta Palascia, the easternmost point of Italy, and on to the tiny cove of Porto Badisco. In the following days you pass tiny fishermen hamlets, coastal SPA towns and ancient Messapian villages, to end your trip in Lecce, with its baroque palaces and Roman masterpieces. The route is an ever-changing one, as well as the surrounding landscape: from a coastal shepherd’s path along a low jagged cliff to the open grasslands of an Apulian “Savana”, though stone walled roads carved by the passage of ancient carts and lush forests of tall trees. A walk which is also a real feast for the senses: the presence of nature is more and more vivid with each step, accompanying you with the rustle of ancient olive trees, the screeching of crickets, the smell of wild fennel and licorice and the azure twinkle of the sea

  • Fabulous walks along the “Tratturi”, ancient roads and footpaths running through orchards and olive groves
  • The “Cipolliane path”; a breath-taking walk overlooking the sea and named after the caves you can visit along the way
  • Historical sights of all ages, from Roman masterpieces and Messapian towns to the present day: churches, fortresses, villas
  • The buzzing city of Lecce, with its baroque palaces, delicious food and artisan shops
  • Great beaches for swimming with crystal clear waters
