Things to see in Gallipoli on holidays

17 Mag

Gallipoli, in the last few years, has become the most popular destination in Salento especially for the youngest people. The nightlife and the wonderful beaches have made the village one of the most ideal places to spend holidays. Gallipoli, however, with its old town, its churches and monuments is worth a visit for its architectural beauties as well.

Facing the Ionian Sea, Gallipoli is located along the west coast of Salento and is divided into two distinct areas: the old town, which stands on an island of limestone, and the new village, connected to the island by a bridge dating back to the 17th century. Continua a leggere

The excellent Italian destination: dreaming of Salento ..

24 Apr

EVEN WITH THE CAR SIMPLE & SAFE TO REACH 

The Salento Region is perfectly connected to the boot of Italy and therefore for rest of central Europe. You can arrive independently by car, without using other means of transport, but directly from your homes. Given the good road connections even greater distances can be done in very reasonable time. Some advise, this year, to spend the holidays inside the peninsula.

FABULOUS IN THE SEA & BEACHES

We go from the enchanted sunrises of Otranto, to the romantic sunsets of Torre Vado, to pass through the authentic villages, scattered among the fragrant wild countryside. This sinuous patch of land caresses the sea without shaking it. The soft beaches kiss transparent water. Porto Cesareo, Torre Lapillo, Gallipoli, Torre Dell’Orso, San Foca, Pescoluse .. Few other areas of Italy are so dense with panoramic natural paintings, that you can live and feel your own. Relaxation to do what we like, how we like it. An ecstasy.

RICH IN HISTORY

Lecce offers real treasures, which you will appreciate walking: Piazza del Vescovato, Piazza Santo Oronzo with the amphitheater, the Church of Santa Croce. You can have an aperitif in the shadow of the Baroque, in the intriguing streets of the historic center. In this video, a fascinating journey through time, to relive the town in the various eras ..

Even Taranto, nestled between the Mar Piccolo and Mar Grande, can revive the ancient and magical atmospheres of Magna Graecia, with the exceptional MarTa museum.

AND ORIGINAL STORIES

You can choose to start from the authentic Salento villages, staying in one of them: Corigliano d’Otranto, Carpignano Salentino or focus on the elegant Galatina.

STARTING AND ENDING THE DAYS WITH TASTE

In Italy, good food cannot be missing on a self-respecting holiday and here you can satisfy all palates. Fish, meat and products of the earth color the tables and stimulate the appetite with inviting, refined aromas. It is beautiful to make a vegetable refined, already grown in the best way in a land full of sun. Taste and balance guaranteed.

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SOLUTION …

To stay at your best, in a safe and independent way, a holiday villa is a perfect choice, both with swimming pool and on the beach. We can therefore, by slowing down the frenzy that pervades today’s materialistic life (abandoned for over a month), rediscover slow tourism, which enriches in the deep, as the writer of this interesting article claims. We in Salento have made a lifestyle out of slow life… 😉

Epidemiologist Lopalco: the warm weather would stop the epidemic

1 Apr

Pietro Luigi Lopalco, eminent world-renowned epidemiologist

The news is extremely important, a statement that puts an end to the doubts about a possible summer in a swimsuit, towel, mask and gloves.

The news comes after the optimism generated by the drop in the number of cases, as demonstrated by the daily “Sole24ore” here https://lab24.ilsole24ore.com/coronavirus/

On the evening of March 31, Lopalco would have reached by the phone Michele Emiliano, the Apulia Governor. After expressing his satisfaction for how the regional system of Health is managing the epidemic, Lopalco would have thought about a theory: from laboratory studies, they know that the pathogen doesn’t survive at a temperature above 26-27 degrees (outdoor). In Salento that one is the temperature of the water in summertime.

Michele Emiliano, Apulia Governor, who has so far managed the emergency very well surrounded by experts

So it might be realistic to think that the sun will defeat the virus. Many are convinced of this analysis. For this reason, the restrictive measures will gradually decrease after Easter (which will truly be of Resurrection!), and they might end in late April / early May.  In the South, in that season, the virus might no longer be able to infect. However, they will have to find a vaccine before Autumn, otherwise the problem will recur later in  November.

So we are all ready for a beautiful summer in Salento .. 😉

This happy news is not entirely true … that is, Lopalco did not call Emiliano on the evening of 3/31/20 to communicate these thoughts.
Today is April Fool’s Day, when, traditionally, you are allowed to fool around with words, images and more 🙂
But the news, perhaps, contains a seed of truth, as you can read in the following articles, published in March:

So LET’S HOPE and let’s keep being OPTIMISTS, because:
To be optimistic means to have a favorable attitude, which let you keep hoping, even in adverse circumstances. The word derives from the French “optimisme”, which takes its origin from Latin “optimus” (excellent). The latter always refers to the verb “ops, opis” in Latin, whose meanings are: power, authority, help, wealth, resources.
We must always be optimistic because this attitude helps us, allowing us to count on our best resources. At the same time, we have to equip ourselves with every necessary tool to face the worst case scenario (“Si vis pacem para bellum”), but we always have to do this with OPTIMISM
