Our final stop on our Puglia road trip was on the east coast, a very old and extremely nice town called Otranto. This place is an absolute gem. We arrived in the late afternoon for a few cocktails by sunset and had to leave a few hours later to complete our drive back to Monopoli, where we arrived at almost 11pm. We wish that we could have spent more time here. There are huge castle walls and a secluded fishing port with an exquisite beach, as well as cobbled lanes filled with amazing shops and food – as well as thousands of very stylish Italians.
Highly recommended, at least for a day trip.
