Beach
“Torre Guaceto - this is a WWF Natural Reserve; its name comes from the Arab Gawsit meaning “land of fresh water”. Since 1975 it has been declared a wetland of international interest and in 1991 a protected marine area has also been constituted. The reserve covers an area of nearly 22 km2 and 8 Km of coastline spread around the ancient fortified tower and is one of the best-preserved stretches of coast along the Adriatic coast. The nature reserve is a protected area between the coast of Ostuni and that of Brindisi, at Serranova. It is a natural reserve of particular beauty and importance. The area is characterized by the presence of fresh water, which helped the growth of extensive woodlands and varied species of animals. Inside there are several habitats and landscapes, including a marine reserve with rocky and sandy seabeds; a wet and marshy area inhabited by amphibians and birds; sand dunes and long sandy beaches. The wetlands, fed by brackish water ponds, are an important feature of this reserve. Along the coast lie sandy dunes formed by the action of the wind. The place is called after a tower, part of a series of towers existing along the coast. These were built in the 16th Century as a defence system by the Aragonese family. The natural area is divided into three zones that correspond to different types of protection and specific natural features. The most important area, Zone A, has a full protection status. Here hiking is possible but only with previous permission. The other 2 zones have a partial protection status ”

“In the splendid setting of the typical narrow streets and whitewashed houses Riccardo Caffe is the most suggestive lounge bar in Ostuni. It is located in the center of the Old Town not far from the ancient city wall. Don't miss a look inside the three ancient rooms of natural stones used as a mill several centuries ago. One of the best and fashionable place in Puglia where to drink tasty and fresh cocktails”

Historic Site
“Ostuni is one of those cities that you can visit in a short time yet want to spend more time being there. The views from up on the hill are breathtaking and viewing the city at night from below is gorgeous. The old city is wonderful to walk around, with its tiny winding streets with the pure white houses on all sides. The lime wash not only gives lightness to the narrow alleys but originally is thought to have been applied as a disinfectant, to protect from the plague. Wander freely, get lost as you will always find your starting point! There are many bars, cafés & restaurants including the famous Riccardo Caffe (nighttime cocktail spot), Gipas 111 & Osteria del Temp Perso. Or tour by Ape!”
