Gallipoli: Salento's Pearl
Gallipoli is a nice town in the province of Lecce, overlooking the Ionian Sea. It's in a beautiful location on the Mediterranean coast. It's ancient and has evidence from different historical periods.
The city's 20,000 residents more than triple in the summer months when it becomes a tourist hot spot.
There are plenty of places to spend a few carefree hours in the heart of Salento nightlife. Gallipoli's characteristic restaurants and trattorias offer the best of the region's rich cuisine, accompanied by highly prestigious wines now known throughout the world.
Meanwhile, pubs, bars, lidos and seaside chalets often organise parties with live music that makes the evening more fun.
