South Italy and most of its little villages, is an area so little known to the European tourism yet in a delightful land wealthy of natural beauties, such as the Arch of Arcomagno, a natural arch of rock, entrance to an attractive coved beach,  with calm turquoise sea; the Faraglioni of Capri, beautiful sea rocks in the sea of Capri, one of many in the Amalfi Coast; or the Etna Volcano, still active and one of Sicily's biggest tourist attractions. History and architecture are also very important factors of southern Italy's culture and tourist attractions, like the temple ruins of Agrigento - Sicily; Capri offering one of Italy's most beautiful piazzas (town square) in the middle of town, Piazzetta, completely closed up, giving the impression of a courtyard, surrounded by many shops and cafes and the Torre dell'Orologio (Tower of Clock); or the over 40 mt. high statue of the Christ in Maratea situated on a hill over 300 mt. high offering a most breath-taking site over the port of Maratea. Another great piece of southern Italy history, from Calabria to be exact, is the Bronzi di Riace: two magnificent bronze, human-size, male statues, found in the gulf of Riace, now showing in the museum of Reggio Calabria, representing the Greek conception of heroism and beauty for their classical composure and dynamic vitality.
Great tourist attractions for both rural and coastal holidays are also the town of Rivello, based on the graceful Basilicata mountains with its typical hystorical houses that can be found in all old parts of most of southern Italy's towns, and the Trulli, typical Apulia houses with cone shaped roofs. Not to mention the delicious cuisine and friendly people, all part of a world waiting to be explored and taken advantage of.

Gallipoli - Travel and Holiday to south Italy, accommodation by the sea or rural

GALLIPOLI - APULIA - SOUTH ITALY

The city of Gallipoli, from the Greek "Beautiful City" is a pearl within the blue waters of the Ionic. It was an ancient town of fishermen and sailors, a fortress against the Turks, a place of oriental charm, with its wonderful beaches, the beautiful historical monuments that surround it, the perfumes of the healthy and delicious traditional cooking and the alleys of its village.
The town appears even more characteristic for the division in two areas: the old city and the new village. The historical centre rises on a calcareous island linked to the dry land by a brick bridge and is full of ancient constructions and frescoes.

In order to face enemies attacks, in 1500 were built the enclosure walls that were, afterwards, changed in height at the end of the nineteenth century up to the present panoramic road that surrounds the whole small island. So it is possible to enjoy the wonderful view. Towards North it is possible to admire a part of Narḍ coast; towards South the bay formed by the Pizzo promontory can be seen.

Towards West, near the coast it is possible to see the Scoglio dei Piccioni (Pigeons Rock), the small island of Campo and in particularly clear days it is possible to discern the outlines of the Sila mountains; whereas towards South-Ovest clearly appears Sant'Andrea island with its lighthouse.

Immediately after crossing the bridge one faces the Greek-Roman fountain that is considered the most ancient of Italy. From here one enters immediately the new village of the town through Corso Roma that divides the town in two trunks called "sirocco" and "north wind". The town, desired destination for tourists, has wonderful beaches along the coast way and is equipped with hotels and camp sites. The economy is based on tourism, fishing and trade.
