For the Romans, Brindisi marked the end of the Appian Way; these days it’s a port city with a scenic old quarter. Tree-lined Via Roma is home to the city’s best shops and the narrow alleys of the historic centre are an explorer’s paradise. In the summer the mega-rich roll into town and moor their super-sized yachts here – have fun trying to guess who owns them! Don’t miss the fresh seafood. Fritto misto (deep-fried octopus, squid and prawns) is one of Brindisi’s specialities. If you’ve got the time, try to head further south and explore the countryside and coastline, especially the city of Lecce.
SNORKELLING AT PORTO SELVAGGIO
Puglia is a great place to see the Mediterranean’s underwater delights, and a favourite snorkelling spot for people in the know is Porto Selvaggio. The water here is amazingly clear and the variety of sea life amazing. Treats to look out for include starfish, shoals of anchovies and (if you’re lucky) maybe even an octopus. Porto Selvaggio is only accessible by foot (about 20 minutes from the road) and lies on the edge of a marine reserve. A freshwater spring means the water can be cool here, so outside summer you’ll need a wetsuit.
Bar Betty on Brindisi’s dockside is one of the region’s favourite spots for frozen treats. The choice of flavours on offer is staggering, and the real fruit ice creams are especially delicious – try the strawberry if you don’t believe us! They also have a great selection of pastries and cakes, which makes this the perfect spot for a leisurely breakfast. Summer or winter, whenever you visit, no trip to Italy would be complete without an ice cream.
Summer nightlife in Italy involves the whole family – and what better place to have some fun than at Luna Park’s fair? Luna parks (literally ‘moon parks’) pop up in coastal towns all over the region, and are packed with people until late at night. Porto Cesareo’s Luna Park is open year round (weekends only October - May). Although most of the attractions are more suited to younger visitors, rides like the bumper boats are fun for everyone. Children here stay up late – so don’t be surprised if the kiddie roundabouts are still packed at 11 pm.
