About your host

Ciao! I am a language teacher, a tour guide and an authentic “Galliponer”. As a guide, in addition to classical paths of Salento, I have also worked in the traditional underground mills of Gallipoli. Here I discovered the glorious past of my city that for centuries had been a rich port thanks to the production of lamp olive oil. This past is still unknown to many and it deserves to be discovered!…

What we’ll do

We call Gallipoli's old town “the pan” for its characteristic round shape with the XXVII bridge as handle. Locals use to say “take a ride on the pan”, which means to walk along the old walls, it is a real ritual that you can do on your own, to meditate while watching the sea, or chatting with friends about the news from the town. And just like a friend I will bring you in the old town as real…

What I’ll provide

Drinks
Iced coffee with almond syrup (Lecce's coffee or Salentinian coffee)

What to bring

comfortable clothes appropriate for sacred places, water

Where you'll be

Our walk will start at the Greek fountain, one of the most symbolic monument of our town. Than we will cross the bridge that connects the island of the old town to the land, we will visit the fish market and we will walk across alleys seeing the most important “palazzi” and visiting the Cathedral of Saint Agata. After that we will walk along the walls to arrive to the Purità’s Church and to the Saint Francesco Church and its legendary “unrepentant thief”. We will end drinking a Salentinian coffee in front of the sea.
