Beautiful historic place! Lots of lovely little shops and nice restaurants. Otranto has a long interesting history. It’s a must see when visiting Salento.

A very nice surprise to visit this well maintained, full of life, medieval town centre. A must see! Shops, restaurants, fortress, architecture, narrow streets and great open spaces... You want to see it and spend half day and evening there!

The historic center of Otranto is nice to visit. You have many shops to go to to, the cathedral is very nice, especially the floor. The castle is big. A must go! The center is small so you can do it quick.

Some old town centres have kept he souvenir sellers out, and preserved the atmosphere and general ambience. Otranto has not. Nevertheless, if you stay in Otranto, you will surely visit the old city. There are still some marvellous sights, views, and wondrous architecture to behold.
