Discover the secrets of Southern Italy on this immersive full-day itinerary. Running down the stretch of the Italian heel, this region remains undeservedly undiscovered. Characterized by earthy cuisine and white-washed architecture, Puglia can feel more like a Greek island than an Italian region – making its exploration all the more adventurous.
This carefully crafted itinerary introduces you to the secrets of Southern Italy. Giving you an authentic taste of southern life at the slow and steady pace it deserves.
Visit Lecce – the ‘Florence of the South’
Lecce’s beautifully fashioned buildings have earned it the nickname “The Florence of the South”. The city owes its ornate baroque aesthetic to the influx of wealthy religious orders towards the end of the sixteenth century. Spend a few hours wandering around Lecce’s medieval centre and you’ll soon appreciate the extent to which they left their mark.
Your Secrets of Southern Italy itinerary continues in Otranto
In the afternoon, we make our way to Italy’s southernmost gem: the stunning town of Otranto. This UNESCO site’s highlight is the 11th-century cathedral with its stunning series of mosaics. The day ends with a trip to the sea to lookout over the natural stacks of Torre Sant’Andrea and enjoy an evening dip in Otranto’s cerulean sea.
Wind down the day in Gallipoli
The last stop on your Secrets of Southern Italy itinerary is Gallipoli, a white-washed walled city right at the bottom of Italy’s heel. After visiting its Baroque cathedral, 14th-century castle, and an underground olive mill dating to the 17th-century, we’ll enjoy a sit-down lunch at a family-run restaurant in the surrounding area with a delectable selection of freshly-caught seafood.
As with all our private Italy tours, your Secrets of Southern Italy tour is fully customizable. Whatever your passion – whether for food, history, or nature – we can craft the perfect private tour for you!

The golf cart has access to many places that are inaccessible to buses or cars, and the up close view of the city was without parallel.
I would highly recommend this tour. It was a highlight of our wonderful trip to Rome. read less - 6/06/2022

Very friendly and professional- ask for her- but I would guess all their guides are good. read less - 5/15/2022
