  • The old town of Otranto is a must. Please note: paying the tax, the city of Otranto offers all its guests the Otranto Card, which allows you to take advantage of discounts and free parking spaces. Not only. Will give you a valuable free tour through the streets of the city with a fabulous Guide. Is not to be missed! The guide is a lady well prepared and really fascinating! Will delight you by telling you the stories of the city and discover the secrets of this cradle of civilization. Word to the wise ...;)

  • This summer, while on holiday in Puglia, we did stop to Otranto: gorgeous find! Very well maintained city monuments valued and beautiful sea. Among the attractions are the walls and its Tower. It was very nice to stroll through the streets of the village, recently renovated. I'd put more locals x increase tourism.

  • This is an old fishing village very well preserved and with narrow streets full of listings and locations. Definitely worth visiting it by giving ourselves a couple of hours and maybe stop for a drink or for dinner. You leave your car in one of the parking lots not far from the old in that, given the size, turns a great time walking. It is an ancient fishing village very well preserved and with its narrow streets full of commercial activity. It's definitely worth a visit dedicating a couple of hours and maybe to stop for a drink or a dinner. To visit it you can leave your car in one of the parking areas not far from the old part of the town.
