What to expect

Discover a magic town in Puglia, a gem on the clear waters of the Adriatic sea, rich in architectural beauty, history and traditions.
On this 2.5-hour private tour you'll walk through the small historic centre of Otranto, surrounded by imposing defensive walls. You'll have the chance to see the majestic Cathedral of the Annunciation, the Aragonese castle and the Byzantine Church of San Pietro.
Along the defensive walls that surround the city, you'll spot the Torre Matta ("crazy tower"), a particular construction that preserves the circular tower model of the late '400 incorporated within the pentagonal bastion of half' 500.
Marvel at the picturesque narrow streets of the old town, at its typical white buildings and breath in the ancient history of this place where the Messapic, Greek, Roman and Turkish traditions merge.
