Otranto is a Puglian town with a lot going for it. It has a beautiful seaside setting with several petite beaches, but is also rich in history, thanks to its well-used port and prime location at the extreme edge of Italy’s eastern coast. The historic centre is the beating heart of this coastal commune, watched over by the massive fortifications of the Castle of Otranto and packed with shops and eateries. 

One of the town’s main attractions is also one of Italy’s most remarkable – an 11th-century cathedral with an 800-year-old mosaic featuring intricate scenes from the Old Testament, designed by a local monk. There’s plenty more to see and do, however, including romantic boat trips along the coast and some great beaches set moments from the old town.  A local favourite that we highly recommend is the Cava di Bauxite – a mysterious turquoise pool of water surrounded by red-tinted banks. It’s a two-mile hike from Otranto’s centre and is well worth the journey.

With one of the warmest climates in Italy, Otranto is great for early or late breaks, and the location, close to Gallipoli and Lecce, ensures that there’s plenty to do no matter when you visit.
