Explore Gallipoli, once part of Greater Greece, whose name means ‘beautiful city’. The historic centre with its narrow lanes, baronial palaces, and dazzling white terraced houses breathes an ambiance of Mediterranean charm and seaside beauty. The medieval town is actually an island surrounded by high walls, which can be seen on a panoramic walk with your local guide. The waters off Gallipoli offer up a veritable feast of the freshest fish; time and day permitting, enjoy a walk down at the local fish market. Afterwards, stop at a family-run vineyard for a tour and tasting. Top regional varietals include reds such as Primitivo, Negroamaro, Aglianico, and Susumaniello, and whites including Falanghina, Moscato Bianco, Minutolo, and Malvasia Bianca. Take a tour with passionate vineyard staff, learning more about the distinctive features and production process that characterise the wines from this region.
