Gallipoli

Gallipoli - a romantic historic old town

Gallipoli literally translated from Greek means "beautiful city" and it definately lives up to its name. It's a really picturesque town surrounded by high walls which were built to protect it against attacks from the sea. The historic old town sits on an island connected to the mainland by a 17th century bridge. 

In peak season, bars and restaurants spill out onto the streets, which in turn provides a charming atmosphere. An evening passeggia  around the walls, looking out to sea, is a great way to prepare for dinner. The town is also important fishing centre and fresh fish cn be purchased from the fish market just to the side of the walls. You will be spoilt for choice of bars and restaurants, most of which have great views of the sunset

The town is formed with many long sandy beaches to the north and south and are respected throughout Italy as being some of the cleanest and clearest waters. The main beach is the Spiggaio dell Purita on the side of the old town. From here many visitors opt to hire a boat for the day from the port and are priced more reasonably than you would think.

Gallipoli is situated on the west coast of the Salento peninsular in the Gulf of Tarnanto on the Ionian see. It is approximately 90km south of Brindisi and around 40 minutes drive from Lecce
