    Adriatic Coast: High Cliffs And Emerald Sea

    The landscape changes completely on the Adriatic coast characterized by high cliffs and much more rock that transforms the color from the sea from turquoise to emerald.
    The best way to catch this difference is from the boat, enjoying an itinerary between the caves and the two seas.
    We will return to Bari, stopping in the Otranto area and for dinner just outside Lecce.

    Faro di Santa Maria di Leuca

    Landmark
    Open Details
    The first boat tour usually leaves at 10:00 a.m., so we have plenty of time to go to the Cape Santa Maria di Leuca Lighthouse and admire the view of the Gulf of Leuca.
    In operation since 1866, it is one of the most beautiful in our country and the second highest in Europe.

    Salento Waves (escursioni in barca)

    Landmark
    Open Details
    I did my boat tour with Marco Antonio, the captain of Salento Waves, and I couldn't have chosen a better guide.
    During this tour you will visit the wonderful caves on the coast, sometimes even diving in to admire them from the inside. My favorite was definitely the blowing one, having overcome the initial difficulty of entering with the mountain literally blowing on you, you will be faced with one of the most intense blues ever thanks to the play of light filtering inside.
    The tour takes about three hours, I calculated 3h30 to allow you to calmly return and take the car back.
    To book, feel free to call the captain directly at: +39 349 088 5506

    There is nothing like the sea to stimulate the appetite, and for lunch today we will go to a masseria, a typical rural building in the southern Italian tradition.
    To have lunch I suggest you call and make sure they do restaurant service that day and that there is availability because the tables are not very many, here is the number: +39 0833 547391 Here the official website.
    There are several rooms for rent, which makes the facility open every day and all day, except for vacations.

    Torre dell'Orte

    Landmark
    Open Details
    After the southernmost point in Italy, we go to the easternmost point with Torre dell'Orte.
    As with the Ionian coast, the Adriatic coast is also characterized by monitoring towers for protection from the Turks whose construction work began around 1565.
    Compared to the previous ones, however, this one is architecturally profoundly different from the square shapes.
    The whole area around the tower is very beautiful; take a few minutes to walk around and enjoy the view.

    Aragonese Castle of Otranto

    Landmark
    Open Details
    We stop for a snack in the town of Otranto, famous for its history dating back to Greek and Roman times, and you can still see relics of it today, as well as those from the Byzantine and Aragonese periods.
    A must-see is definitely the original castle from the late 15th century and like that of Taranto, it has seen successive dominations repair, expand and rebuild it.
    Take time for a tour of the historic center and choose a café for a break before getting back in the car.

    The opening image of this itinerary is precisely the stacks of Torre Sant'Andrea. The sea on this beach has received the "blue flag" award for several years, meaning a pristine place.
    Here, too, more or less hidden caves characterize a landscape shaped in the white rock. The arched stacks, the most famous is called "of the lovers."

    Trulli are a typical building in Apulia, and the most famous town to admire them is certainly Alberobello. Nevertheless, it is not uncommon to come across these buildings, especially in the countryside.
