DISCOVERING PARADISIACAL MEDITERRANEAN VILLAGES
Half-day excursion with a driver, on a comfortable 9-air conditioned seats van. Come with us to discover the heavenly Mediterranean villages of the Ionian coast.
The first stop of the tour is in Nardò, a village with an historic centre with lots of extraordinary Baroque palaces, churches and chapels. Then Torre Uluzzo, a coastal tower originally born with defensive functions, which stands on a rock near to Porto Selvaggio. Along the way you have the opportunity to admire Santa Caterina, with an hilly part called Le Cenate, with villas and small churches and the seafront.
Then, Santa Maria al Bagno with its clear waters and Le Quattro Colonne, whose name comes from the four lateral pillars that remained intact after the collapse of the Castle.
To conclude, a must-stop is Gallipoli, the pearl of the Ionian Sea, divided into the old town connected to the mainland by a seventeenth-century bridge and the modern part, with modern buildings. You can visit historic palaces, churches, the Castle and the Basilica of St. Agata.
