  • The Historic Center of Otranto is fairly small, set right on the seaside with some impressive hills. The real stars are the walls, Cathedral and the wonderful views.  more »
  • Really enjoyable town to wander around and plenty of harbourside cafe and restaurants to while away a relaxed lunchtime and afternoon. Whats not to like.  more »
