Lecce and the deepest Salento 6-day Self-guided Cycling Tour Level 2

Apulia is a region in south-eastern Italy that includes the heel part of Italy’s boot, suspended between the Ionian and Adriatic Sea. The region is characterised by endless olive groves, long fields of grain and vineyards. You start and end the tour in Lecce, also known as “Florence of the South” because of its magnificent baroque architecture. This bike tour will lead you into a region of scenic beauty, which is, by today’s standards, still unspoiled by the unattractive aspects of tourism and still retains testimony of its great and ancient culture.

5 nights hotel accommodation in 3*/4*

  • Day 1

    Lecce

    Individual arrival. Thanks to its Baroque style, it has earned the nickname of Florence of the South

  • Day 2

    Lecce – Gallipoli (50 km)

    After a few kilometers through the town of Lecce, you go deep into the “salentinian countryside”, before approaching the Ionian coast and your daily destination, Gallipoli.

  • Day 3

    Gallipoli – Santa Maria di Leuca (50 km)

    Cycling further along the coast you will reach Santa Maria di Leuca. Its name was given by the ancient Greek sailors who came from the East. They saw this place lightened by the sun and therefore called it “leukos”, meaning white. The town is today a famous seaside resort.

  • Day 4

    Santa Maria di Leuca – Otranto (50 km)

    Today you will cycle northwards along the Adriatic coast to Otranto, the most eastern point of Italy where you can visit the beautiful Cathedral and the great Aragonese Castle.

  • Day 5

    Otranto – Lecce (55 km)

    Riding along the Alimini Lakes and their unique Mediterranean bush you will enter Lecce.

  • Day 6

    Lecce

    Departure after breakfast.

    Due to organisational reasons, weather conditions or provisions issued by local authorities, the itinerary may be subject to some changes before and/or during the holiday. Along the way you may find temporary deviations (for example road works) which cannot be foreseen, in which case each rider can decide autonomously how to deal with these stretches.
