31 - Boat Tour in Otranto

No review.

Otranto, well-known as “Porta d’Oriente” (“Door to the Orient”), has been the destination of many peoples: Japigi, Messapians, Dauni, Peuceti and Turks. These peoples have left their cultural mark, during their passage.

The southern coast of Otrantois wild and uncontaminated. It is characterized by high cliffs of volcanic origin overlooking the sea and many bays with a rocky sea bed and a rich flora and fauna. There are also many underwater caves and land caves that can be reached by boat.
The northern coast of Otrantois completely different. The rock is calcareous (it is known as “Lecce Stone” or “Leccisu” in the local dialect) and it is used in the construction of churches and houses.
The coast is full of sandy coves with a shallow sea bed appearing like real paradisesthat can be reached only by boat . As a backdrop to these coves, there is the beautifulMediterrean maquiswith its centuries-old maritime pine woods and many plants of blueberry, laurel and rosemary.

During the experience, we'll stop many times for bathing in bays and small coves that can be reached only by boat. We'll offer you an excellent aperitif on board based on typical products of Salento, artisan mozzarella and Primitivo Salentino. The tour includes visiting Otranto from the sea, Torre del serpente, Palombara, Punta faci ', bay of Orte, Capo d'Otranto, Sant'emiliano, Porto Badisco, Grotta delle rose, Grotta della fraula, Santa cesarea terme, Baia di Miggiano , Zinzulusa Cave, Blue Grotto, Palombara Cave and back.

Included is lunch at Otranto. A proposed menu that combines all the taste and flavor of typical Salento cuisine: dishes rich in taste based on meat and vegetables freshly picked from the garden. We discover recipes recovered from the peasant wisdom and we will be amazed by the consistency of flavors. Each bite is a discovery, each dish a story ready to be told.
