Tips for your stay in Brindisi
BrindisiBrindisi’s ancient historical centre is brimming with monuments, castles, churches and charming streets. The Romans built the Appian Way to connect Rome to Brindisi and you can still see the column which marks its end. If you take the ferry across the canal, you stumble upon the Italian Sailor Monument which was erected by Mussolini in honour of the victims of the First World War. About 2 kilometres from the city centre, close to the airport, is the beautiful church of Santa Maria del Casale. Certainly worth a visit! However, Brindisi’s place to be is the charming boulevard: the perfect location to have dinner or enjoy some drinks while looking at the locals who stroll about leisurely.
Alberobello’s trulliAlberobello is famous for its trulli: white houses with a conical stone roof, sometimes decorated with symbols and entirely built without any cement. Go to this wonderful spot and look for the Siamese trulli, the trullo church, etc. A town packed with history for all ages. Flights to Brindisi bring you to this beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site!
Picturesque ApuliaApulia is brimming with authentic towns. Both located on a hill, Cisternino and Locorotondo have beautiful historical centres laced with narrow, meandering streets. Perched high in the mountains as well, Monte Sant’Angelo is a beautiful place of pilgrimage where Archangel Michael is said to have appeared in the 5th century. Mesagne, along the Appian Way, is not only perfect to wander around and soak up the Italian atmosphere, the castle with its archaeological museum is worth a visit as well. Flights to Brindisi offer you plenty of choice!
The enchanting caves of CastellanaBoth above and below ground level, Apulia boasts wonderful natural phenomena. The Castellana Caves, for example, are Italy’s most famous cave system. Follow the path for about 3 km through the caves and marvel at the mysterious shapes of the stalactites and stalagmites. At the end of the underground tour, you reach a white cave which is absolutely stunning.
Ostuni, the white cityOstuni, ‘la città bianca’, is one of the most typical cities of southern Italy. The beautiful pedestrian historical centre features a maze of whitewashed alleys, staircases and arches, where it is lovely to wander and get lost. Set on the highest point, the cathedral boasts a colourful dome. Book your flights to Brindisi now and explore the white city in all its splendour!
The Baroque town of LecceApart from Rome and Florence, no other city in Italy features as many Baroque monuments as Lecce. Extracted in the area, the “Lecce stone” is a particular kind of soft, pale yellow limestone which has led to a unique architectural style. The city’s churches and palace are richly decorated with fanciful stone decorations. The low-traffic historical centre, Roman theatre, charming Piazza Sant’Oronzo square, beautiful shops and elegant atmosphere Lecce exudes at night: flights to Brindisi bring you to this cultural city in no time.

The coastline is stunning, dotted with beautiful traditional seaside resorts. The charming centre of Monopoli, artisan ice cream in Polignano a Mare, the mysterious caves near Castro Marina, the medieval castle of Otranto, the whitewashed houses of Gallipoli… A day at the beach in Apulia is different every time!
