Full description
The pick-up will take place at 9am in your favourite location in Lecce. Your first stop in this driven tour will be in Galatina where Latin and Greek cultures coexist in harmony, an "outdoor museum" that in 2005 was declared City of Art. After Galatina, your driver will take you to Cantina L'Astore in Cutrofiano, about 100 hectares of vineyards and olive groves, where you can have lunch and taste local wines. Finally, your driver will take you to Gallipoli, the tourist center for its beautiful beaches and crystal clear water. Gallipoli is a trendy town that still keeps the atmosphere of the ancient fishing village. Its name derives from the greek "Kalé polis", which means "beautiful city" and is in fact called Pearl of the Ionian Sea. After a walk downtown, we strongly recommend a stop in Piazza della Dogana, home to the folklorist fish market. Every day the fishermen open their oily fish shoals, sea bream and sea bass, groupers and octopuses.  At the end of the walk your chauffeur will be waiting to take you back to Lecce. A tour guide is not included, a suggestion may be to bring a guidebook. Remember to check on the website the opening times of the location you want to visit and the price of entrance ticket. Entrance fees are not included.
