Ten reasons why I love to go to the beaches of Torre Lapillo in September

2018-08-22T09:57:14+00:00August 22, 2018|Salento, Travel tips|0 Comments

With Torre Lapillo I mean also Punta prosciutto and Porto Cesareo, of course. What can we might define the Ionian Salento. I like too much September, a hot and quiet month with a dreamy sea. In September temperatures are every day between 25 – 30 C° and nights are lukewarm, so I don’t need to put on something long-sleeved during my long evening out until late at night. It’s nice here: September in my opinion [...]

I went to Castro for the nth timealong the Otranto - Santa Maria di Leuca coastal road in Salento, one of the most beautiful ones in Italy. The serene and sunny day urged me to take various photos and write this mini guide at Castro that you may find useful in case you find yourselves on holiday in Salento. The first thing you will notice about Castro is its position on a small bay dominated [...]

2017-06-12T05:04:53+00:00June 12, 2017|Puglia, Travel tips|0 Comments

Today's question was asked by Guido and it's relative to movements towards the sea in Salento in August: how do I move about? Will I find traffic? Here's my answer, but before I must explain the opening photo. It's a photo I took from my mobile phone while I was going to my sea, yes: it can happen that a flock of sheep interrupts your trip. They are the rhythms of Salento. "hello fabio, I [...]

In light of the my years of experience of renting holiday homes in Puglia on the most beautiful beaches of Salento with my real estate agency in Torre Lapillo, I feel like giving you some practical advise on how to avoid frauds on renting a holiday home.

How to get to Lecce city from the Brindisi airport

2017-01-16T05:23:54+00:00January 16, 2017|Puglia, Travel tips|0 Comments

If you arrive in Salento by plane the airport of reference is the Brindisi airport that is called Aeroporto del Salento. It is the airport of reference for southern Puglia and ideal if you want to visit the cities in Salento and in the Valle d'Itria where the Trulli are. While if you want to visit the northern central part of Puglia then it's better to land at the Bari airport. Right, once you have [...]

5 things you can only see in Venice

2016-12-05T05:42:16+00:00December 5, 2016|Travel tips, Venice, What to see|0 Comments

As I mentioned in my Strolling through Venice post in which I told you about my first time in this more than magnificent city, Venice captured me completely. I went a bit unprepaired and maybe it was better because I was able to capture some of its more characteristic aspects as if I were an inexperienced traveller. And Venice has so much to tell, but a few in particular more than others caught my attention [...]

2016-10-31T05:21:24+00:00October 31, 2016|Puglia, Travel tips, What to do, What to see|0 Comments

In October I enjoy my Salento sea completely. It's a period in which we work less here at the beaches, schools have started again, working life also after the summer holidays. But for those of us who live in Salento, some weekends can be really incredible! Yes, because even if October is a month that belongs to Autumn in some places in the world it seems more like a temperate summer. So, a friend of [...]

2016-03-14T07:30:26+00:00March 14, 2016|Puglia, Travel tips|0 Comments

Puglia is in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, and that's why its climate is... typically mediterranean (have I reinvented the wheel?). Consult a map to see the exact location of Puglia in the Mediterranean Sea or read my post Where is Puglia in Italy?. I will now tell you exactly how's the climate here, in Puglia, what's the weather like as well as the best parts of the year during which you can come [...]
