  • Typical summer town, very nice indeed, turns in a short time, ideal for post dinner stroll amongst street markets and bar, mini-refrigerator, but obviously justified, crowding, a chaos beast but obviously we are in August, so don't expect anything different. Recommended for a lovely evening!

  • The old town of Otranto should be absolutely visited. Definitely beautiful promenade, but you can't miss a visit to the old town. Stone paved alleys between houses built with the typical local stone. Nice view from the top of the Castle. The Centre is full of small shops and restaurants. Not to be missed!

  • Visit the Cathedral, not least the Castle area with all the alleys and manicured, lined with shops.
