Your day-by-day itinerary
Today you’ll travel to Salento, the land of two seas. On one side of this peninsula is the Adriatic coast with its rugged cliffs and small pebble coves, along with quaint fishing villages and the ruins of watchtowers. To the west lies the Ionian coast with long white sandy beaches and azure blue water. You will stay in an old masseria (olive farm) that has been converted into a B&B with a comfortable room, a swimming pool and a beautiful roof terrace. The masseria is centrally located and within half an hour you can reach various beaches.
Beach hopping and sunset cruise at Salento
Time to explore the landscape of Salento. It may be relatively bare and flat, but it is the sandy beaches and blue water that steal the show, and you have plenty of choose from. We will arrange a sunset cruise on day two for you. Sailing from the port of Gallipoli, at Torre Pali, you’ll pass an island with ancient ruins and spot the medieval tower off the coast. Then you’ll sail further on to Santa Maria di Leuca, the cape that separates the Ionian from the Adriatic, for sunset, and a few sundownders.
Departure from Salento
It may be that you have arrived at the end of your journey today. If not, you can unravel the secrets of southern Italian cuisine by travelling on to the baroque city of Lecce in Puglia, where we will arrange a cooking workshop for you.
