Otranto is a town and comune in the province of Lecce (Apulia, Italy), in a fertile region once famous for its breed of horses.It is located on the east coast of the Salento peninsula.

Melbourne, Australia to Otranto is an approximately 30-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 9 hours traveling from Melbourne to Otranto. Traveling from Melbourne in July, expect Otranto to be much hotter, temps between 38°C and 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Fri) to allow enough time to drive to Taranto.
