The seaside town of Gallipoli, whose name means Beautiful City, rests like a mirage on the Ionian coast, roughly 40 km (25 miles) from Lecce. The old town, perched on a limestone island, is connected to the new part in the mainland, by a beautiful arched bridge built in the 1900s. The ancient walls, bastions, and towers, which originally defended the town from invaders, today protect the old center from rough seas, while also preserving the charm of days gone by.

Explore the narrow paved streets of the historic centre, from where you can catch an occasional glimpse of the IONIAN sea  and stop off at the authentic fish market, nestled in what used to be the moat of the imposing castle, to vie with the locals for the best of the day’s catch. Here you can immerse yourself in the history, as you wander through fortified towers, tunnels, corridors, and majestic halls. This Angevin fortress, now almost completely surrounded by the sea, was recently restored and is now accessible from the old town.

The old town announce itself with the Greek Fountain, a monument dating back to the Renaissance and to which a baroque pediment was later added. Behind it, you can glimpse through the float trawlers to the Sanctuary of Santa Maria del Canneto and the Chapel of Santa Cristina, dedicated to the town’s patron saint and the favorite saint of sailors.

DAY 5: from Santa Maria di LEUCA to Otranto 55k on rolling terrain
A bike tour of Apulia will not be completed without a the most scenic ride of this bicycle tour, cycling from Santa Maria di Leuca to Otranto, the tip of the heel to the most eastern town of Italy.
Along the way, you will be rewarded with a lunch in one of the many fish restaurants in Tricase porto, a breathtaking view of cliff and alcoves, little hamplet with many opportunity to jump in the water.

OTRANTO is a charming seaside town near the very tip of Italy’s heel in southern Puglia. Like Gallipoli and Ostuni, Otranto had the dubious distinction of being strategically located for foreign invasions of Italy and Europe. Lying deep in Italy’s stiletto, Otranto has back-heeled quite a few invaders over the centuries and been brutally kicked by others – most notably the Turks. Sleuth around its compact old quarter and you can peel the past off in layers – Greek, Roman, Turkish and Napoleonic. These days the town is a generally peaceful place, unless you’re fighting for beach space at the height of summer.

Strolling the old town do not miss a visit of its amazing cathedral where the bones of 813 martyrs are displayed in a glass case behind the altar tell you more about the history of the town. Less macabre and amazingly crafted is the cathedral’s medieval mosaic floor that rivals the famous early Christian mosaics of Ravenna in its richness and historical significance.

DAY 6: from Otranto to Lecce 75km on flat terrain
Your bike tour in Puglia finishes in Lecce, with another easy ride along flat terrain , through the countryside and along the Adriatic coast, through the small village of Acaia, Pisignano, Melendugno and Aquarica di Lecce.
In the evening a farewell dinner at your bed and breakfast will help you recovering from the long bicycling week in Puglia.
