The old town of Gallipoli occupies a small island ringed by 14th-century walls in the historic region of Salento in Southern Italy. One of the region’s prettiest spots, it is awash with Baroque architecture and narrow lanes that take you down to the shores of the Ionian Sea. A sprinkling of medieval landmarks and a fishing port bear testimony to the town’s maritime heritage, while a stonework bridge connects to the mainland and the modern borgo.

A wide range of hotel options can be found in both the old and new parts of Gallipoli, each playing their own distinctive role in to the town’s rich history and enduring appeal. The surrounding coastline is not to be overlooked when picking your accommodation either, with a large number of hotels offering a peaceful setting, yet within easy reach of Gallipoli’s bustling centre.
