Nicknamed the “heel” of the Italian “boot”, sub-peninsula Salento is a geographic and historical region at the southern end of Puglia in Southern Italy. It is home to some of world’s dreamy beaches and most dramatic rocky coastline.
The Salento is also home to some of Italy’s most exquisite towns and cities including the golden beaches of Gallipoli and Otranto, the creamy baroque architecture of Lecce and the luxurious seaside Liberty pleasures of Leuca.
