Gallipoli, a small fishing town in the South of Puglia that can be perfectly reached on a day trip from Lecce or could of course be visited separately which gives you the opportunity to soak up more of the town’s vibes during the night and evening. You can go here to spend a day on the beach, to enjoy some seafood at one of the many restaurants and of course to stroll around and discover all little streets and alleys. What we did, was walk along the water on the way first (you’ll pass by many cute fisherman types of restaurants) and cross through the city on the way back. Our car was parked at the port’s parking lot, which was a great place to start discovering. Most importantly, strolling through Gallipoli I wanted to get my camera out and capture the vibe of the town and practice my photography skills. Hence, this photographic guide to Gallipoli!
Note to myself for next time: I would like to practice even more on those detailed shots where you might not even realize directly how great it actually looks in an article or in a photo series. It is time for another trip to focus on that I would say. Next to strolling around, admiring the cathedrals/churches and enjoying seafood and ice cream, Gallipoli is also a great place to do some shopping. There are great wine shops that sell all the local wines, as well as olive oil stores and it is the town where we saw most touristic items (think of the little fridge magnets among others).
Well, let’s dive in, there were just too many pictures to not show on why Gallipoli is worth a visit during your trip to Puglia (check out our itinerary here) with this photographic guide to Gallipoli.
