“A natural bridge between the Mediterranean and the East, Otranto is a magical land where the ancient atmosphere of the historic centre goes hand in hand with fervid devotion, romantic sea reflections, and a lively nightlife. Begin your visit by walking along the Lungomare degli Eroi (Heroes' Promenade), at the foot of the ancient city centre. Go past the monument dedicated to the Martyrs, sculpted by Antonio Bortone, and head down the stairs through the Porta Alfonsina to the old town. Take time to visit the Castello Aragonese (Aragon Castle) and the Cathedral, with its precious mosaic floor and the relics of 800 martyrs killed by the Turks in 1480. Outside the town, you'll be charmed by a wonderful emerald green lake set amidst the coral-coloured hills of the Bauxite quarry, while the imposing Punta Palascia lighthouse waits for the year's first dawn to break on Italy. Porto Badisco, Aeneas' mythical landing point, harbours a series of wall paintings in the Grotta dei Cervi (Deer Cave), known as the “Neolithic Sistine Chapel.” A Blue Flag flies over Otranto's sea, with all its inlets and caves. This recognition rewards the policies implemented to preserve and safeguard the area's environmental heritage, as well as the sustainable management of the local territory, the safety of its beaches, the quality of the services offered, and the cleanliness of its sea waters. Otranto also boasts a port shaped like a small bay, where fishing boats and other vessels are moored. Conca Specchiulla, the Alimini Lakes, the Baia dei Turchi (the “Turkish Bay”), and the Baia di Santo Stefano are located just north of Otranto. South of the town, you'll find the Baia dell'Orte, Punta Palascia (Italy's most easterly spot), the Tower of Sant'Emiliano and Porto Badisco.”

Greek Restaurant
“It is one of the most hidden places and maybe for this reason more beautiful and wild of the entire island. To get there you have to pass through the mountains village of Agios Leon and from there following the signs, driving down a recently asphalted road running down to the sea and ending in a small square where you can park. From there getting down a few steps carved in the rock, you reach a real fiord stupefying the visitor for the clearness and colours of the waters. It is easy to imagine that in this place there are no many tourist facilities, only recently two terraces with loungers and umbrellas have been created but are not always enough for the request. For those who really care about caves it is worth visiting the first one just getting down the steps; once there and in the water you understand that the cave is to continue … but only for those who love extreme sports. We suggest to everybody and especially those who have their own boat, to visit Porto Roxa that is only 3 km from Porto Limnionas. It is another small bay with a slipway to put boats in the water in an exceedingly beautiful part of coast.”

Cave
“This wonderful cave system is situated just off the Argostoli to Sami road to the south of Sami and close to the village of Chaliotata. The cave has been open to tourists since 1963. It is reputedly 40km deep but you cannot explore all of it. There is one large cavern that is about 1,000 square feet and has often hosted concerts and operas due to its fantastic acoustics.”
