On this 5 days road trip, you will explore the whole region of Salento. If you have more time, you can definitely spend more days on this road trip as there is so much to see and do whether it is culture or nature. The hill of the Italian boot extends from Brindisi on the Adriatic sea to Taranto on the Ionian Sea. On both sides, you will enjoy amazing views with cliffs, clear blue sea water and great beaches to swim.
In between you will discover Lecce, the most beautiful town of Apulia with its baroque churches and palaces that make her famous and called the Florence of the South. Everywhere you go, you will be able to taste amazing food from Apulia, seafood and local wines.
