Rome, Milan, Venice and Florence are great destinations for good food, great wine, amazing fashion and the atmosphere of romance. All these reasons ensure Italy remains a country many want to visit! Now Salento, Italy's south-coastal secret treasure, is gaining popularity as a tourist destination. The official Agenzia Regionale del Turismo promotes Salento as “a boarder(sic) land embraced by two seas, miles of coastline and where white sandy beaches give way to secret coves and cliffs”.
Rock, sea, sun, ancient cultures, deeply rooted traditions and people with whom it might be hard to break the ice with, but it definitely leads to wonders!
The Salento Peninsula is a landmark of the Italian Boot bordering, the Adriatic Sea and the Ionian Sea, and it is without a doubt one of the most beautiful countrysides of wonderful Italy is. The charming endless beaches on the Ionian Sea, sandy shores and the blue and green hills, the shimmering sea of fifty shades, and the shores of the Adriatic coast with small sandy coves cornered with cliffs - it's just amazing.
This is where the setting of our trekking tour in Salento. A whole week trekking here means 82 km of wanderlust and the unique experience of discovering the wildest side of Salento. The tour will lead into the Costa d’Otranto Regional Natural Park, and it will visit Santa Maria di Leuca and Bosco di Tricase.
Five stops, all characterized by the constant presence of the sea, the typical cuisine of Salento in the traditional countryside restaurants.
The end of the trekking tour leads to the southernmost point of Salento that is Santa Maria di Leuca, where we may fall into the foam of the sea from white cliffs. But only after we have photographed ourselves with the southernmost point of the Italian east (Punto Ristola) and the lighthouse in the background, or maybe we went through the cathedral.
