Discover Salento: A Perfect Blend of History, Nature, and Authentic Italian Charm

Salento, located at the southern tip of Puglia, is a gem of southern Italy that offers an irresistible blend of history and nature. Its golden beaches and the crystal-clear waters of the Adriatic and Ionian seas are just the beginning of the journey.

But Salento is not just about the sea: it’s a dive into history with its medieval towns like Otranto and Gallipoli, where time seems to stand still.

Otranto, the easternmost city in Italy, is famous for its cathedral with a 12th-century mosaic floor depicting biblical and mythological stories. Gallipoli, with its old town on an island, offers breathtaking sunsets and a historic center rich in baroque churches and noble palaces.

For foreign tourists, Salento offers authentic experiences: from village festivals, where you can taste local specialties like pasticciotto and rustico, to pizzica nights, the traditional dance of Salento. Food and wine enthusiasts can join guided tours of local wineries, tasting fine wines like Primitivo and Negroamaro, and visit historic olive mills to savor extra virgin olive oil.

For golf lovers, Salento hosts top-level courses such as San Domenico Golf and Acaya Golf. San Domenico Golf, located near Savelletri, offers an 18-hole course with sea views, while Acaya Golf, nestled in the greenery of the Cesine Natural Park, combines sport and nature in a picturesque setting.

The masserie, ancient farms transformed into charming agritourisms, allow you to experience the area authentically, immersed in the beauty and tranquility of the countryside. Salento is the perfect destination for those seeking a vacation that combines relaxation, culture, sports, and nature, with a touch of authenticity that makes every visit unique and unforgettable.
