My husband and i are planning to visit Puglia mid august for 8 days but are confused whether to stay in Lecce or Otranto.
My main dream about this whole vacation is to stay in a seaside Italian village with cobblestone alleys, eat at local restaurants, go to the market and relax by the beach since we are incredible beach lovers. So Otranto was my first choice but after doing some research i found that most people suggest using Lecce as a base and moving from there around the coast, maybe visiting a new area/beach everyday. Is this smarter? Or staying in Otranto will we be able to do the same?
Any ideas on the matter?
