One of the best historical city center of South Italy. Apulia is always a beautiful surprise. This can be considered the symbol of its beauty. The white of the houses, the narrow lanes and the incredible landscape are what make this precious gem standing out...More

A little smaller than Lecce and other towns, which makes it easier to feel that you are seeing everything. Attractive streets and buildings. One of our favourite Puglia locations.

We did a quick tour (60 minutes) with a Italian tuktuk. This takes you through the old center at warp speed. Also it is much less warm in summer, which is nice. The city itself was nice to walk around.

The wife and I visited in June and found the city layout a bit confusing, but the Italians don't and that's what matters. You must have a map here, but there are plenty of tourist places to supply you with one for free, you just...More
