  • Walk through the old town is really impressive! You can walk on a stretch of the walls (no strollers or wheelchairs). Through the staircases you can descend into the sea for a swim in a natural pool!

  • A very pleasant walk between the white and clean streets of the old town of Otranto. The crypt of the Cathedral, a true gem St Peters basilica. Very original colourful shops rich in unusual products made by local artisans. Pleasant bathing on the beach in the country, where those who don't like the sand can ' enjoy the pleasure of the cliff.
