Discover Gallipoli and its treasures

Guided tour of Gallipoli

During  the guided visit of Gallipoli  you will discover this amazing town that in Greek is Kallipolis, meaning “Beautiful City”.

Gallipoli’s old town is surrounded by late-medieval walls and is home to a traditional fishing port, baroque churches, a Renaissance-era “Greek” fountain, and a castle surrounded by the sea.

It is located by the Ionian Sea, on the west coast of the Salentina Peninsula. The town of Gallipoli is divided in two parts, the modern and the old city. The old town is located on a limestone island, linked to the mainland by a bridge built in the 16th century.
In past times the economy of Gallipoli was based on the international wine and oil commerce. Nowadays its most important activities are based on fishing and tourism.

During the guided tour of Gallipoli you will visit the fishermen port and market filled with fishing boats and a few fisherman fixing nets and working late into the afternoon. We will stroll clockwise along the water’s edge, admiring the endless sea views, the winding streets of the city and the courtyard homes.
