Salento highlights

The watchtowers around Salento
The coast of Salento is speckled with numerous fascinating watchtowers, originally built in the 16th century to fend off pirates.
Try the mouthwatering pasticciotto
Visit one of the many cafés in Lecce’s Piazza Sant’Oronzo and relish this scrumptious mix of rustic pastry and creamy custard.
Punta della Suina Beach
Surrounded by a pine forest, the crystal-clear waters, fine sand and stunning views of historic Gallipoli make this beach a perfect paradise.
The Zinzulusa and Romanelli caves
Head to Castro on the Adriatic coast and take a boat tour on crystal-clear waters to visit these 2 picturesque caves.

A Magic Southern Jewel

Comprising the south part of Italy’s Region of Puglia, the Salento peninsula is located in the ‘heel’ of the Italian ‘boot’. With an unusual and beautiful landscape, it also has traditions shaped by explorers and invaders from a variety of cultures that reached its coasts.

If Salento is a jewel, the main piece is definitely the city of Lecce. Its walled historic centre is greatly admired for the uniqueness of its Baroque style. It also has a Roman theatre and a Greek amphitheatre, both still in use. Try a hotel in Lecce’s old town and go back in time!

Blessed with the waters from the Ionian and the Adriatic seas, its rocky coves and small sandy inlets contrast with the light blue waters. Popular beach hotels in Puglia’s Salento region are located near the Alimini Lakes and the Portoselvaggio Bay.

Other important coastal areas are Porto Cesareo, Torre dell'Orso, Santa Maria di Leuca and Santa Cesarea Terme. Gallipoli and Otranto deserve a visit not only for their beaches, but also because of their beautiful historic centres, mostly shaped during the Aragonese domination of the area.
