Here are some pictures of our day.
From Lecce we drove for about 30 minutes through early morning mist to the coast.
First a walk around the old part of Gallipoli – built on a limestone island linked to the mainland by a 16th century bridge. The cathedral bells were calling in the congregation and the fishing market was bustling.
Then 20km up the coast to Porto Selvaggio – a nature reserve – where we hiked down through the forest to crystal clear waters.
