What to expect

You'll go up the Idro valley along a pleasant dirt patch and you'll see St. Mauro Crypt, which was carved into the soft rock of Salento at the Byzantine time. You'll move on to Casamassella and stop at the Constantine Foundation, a center dedicated to organic farming and traditional weaving with old looms.

Then you'll reach Giurdignano, the main megalithic center of Salento due to the many dolmens and menhirs, the first evidence of human presence in the area.

The next stop will be Giuggianello, where you will visit the beautiful botanic garden "La Cutura", featuring hundreds of Mediterranean, tropical and subtropical plants species, and a unique collection of succulent plants in Europe.

Stop by a bakery with a stone oven for a delicious lunch arranged by the organization. After lunch, you'll cycle to Porto Badisco for a long break, and weather permitting, a swim. It is also possible to rent canoes. You'll then move on along the magnificent coast road to Otranto. You will stop at the fortified farmhouse of Cippano, look at Punta Palascìa lighthouse, the easternmost point of Italy, and a peculiar lake in a disused bauxite quarry.

Return to Otranto in the late afternoon.
