Gallipoli

Trip Planner Europe  /  Italy  /  Puglia  /  Province of Lecce  /  Gallipoli

Ionian Pearl

Deriving its name from the Greek for "beautiful city," Gallipoli retains the charm of an old fishing port. It's on the shores of the Salento Peninsula--the heel of the Italian "boot." The city is split into two contrasting parts: A new urban city of skyscrapers and modern amenities is connected via a 16th-century bridge to a limestone island of Baroque churches and grand plazas. Enjoy the city's beaches, ancient fortifications, and abundance of fresh seafood. Add Gallipoli and other Italy destinations to your travel plans using our Italy road trip planning site .

Where to stay in Gallipoli

To use Gallipoli as a base to see the rest of Puglia, consider staying in or near the city's old town, noted for its shops, restaurants, and museums. Most hotels in this area are quite large and modern, so if you want something a little more traditional and low-key, think about booking your room at a private villa or B&B near the seafront. They offer stylish rooms and sunny terraces, with access to private swimming pools and nearby beaches.
