Overview of your Brindisi tour:

I was born and raised in this area and - thanks to my extensive experience as tour guide, nature guide, wine and olive oil sommelier - I can customize for you an itinerary with the right mix or archaeology, history, art, architecture, wine, food and traditional crafts. We will enjoy the archaeological findings dating back from the Roman domination (when Brindisi was the main port to go to the Orient and Lecce one of the most important city as evidenced by its amphitheater and theater), the heritage of the Knights Templars and crusades, the beauty and the abundance of the Baroque style expressed in the civil and religious architecture. During the tour we can also visit an artisan workshop (to admire the world famous papier-maché, to find the real Made in Italy at an atelier with excellent natural fabrics), enjoy some food tastings: the typical "street food" (i. e. Rustico, Pasticciotto), a coffee at an artisanal roasting bar, excellent wines, extra-virgin olive oil, cheese, cold cuts, ice-cream.
