Full description
Meet your local guide at La Fontana Greca, a beautiful fountain that dates back to the 3rd century and is considered to be one of the oldest in Italy. Then set out for a guided walking tour of the city’s most beautiful and iconic historic landmarks and buildings.

Gallipoli is considered to be the Pearl of the Ionian Sea and is famous for its crystalline sea. But, no less important is its historic center which preserves ancient buildings, beautiful Baroque churches, and characteristic alleys. The city is split into 2 areas, the modern village and the historic center, which is located on a small island connected to the mainland by a bridge and surrounded by ancient defensive walls.

As you walk through the historic center, admire the Baroque architecture of the religious and civil buildings which are decorated with extravagant floral and angelic motifs. From your guide, learn about the history of the city and its architecture, then enjoy a stroll along the coastline to marvel at stunning views across the sea.
