This cycling holiday places Puglia in the spotlights, lesser known than Tuscany or Umbria but therefore not less beautiful, and above all this region is cycling friendly. You start and end your holiday in the baroque city of Lecce. This city is famous for its natural beauty and its historical sights.

Our starting point is Lecce. This city is a highlight, it is called the Florence of baroque or the Athens of Puglia. The days when you cycle are also interesting. For example the third day you will cycle along the wild coast of Salento. While following a cycling path on top of the cliffs, you will have beautiful sights over the Strait of Otranto. On the fourth day you will cycle to Cape Leuca via pittoresque villages and the impressive medieval tower of Salignano. Afterwards you can make trip along the coast with a sailing boat.

The fifth day is the hihglight of your holiday, cycling along the wide sandy beaches and the cristal-clear waters of the Ionian Sea. While cycling you can relax or do a refreshing swim in the sea. You will visit Gallipoli, a fascinating city that must be considered as Italy' best kept secret. In brief: every day, every moment of this cycling holiday is an unique experience that will enrich you with a lot of travel memories.

This tour through the Salento region of Puglia is because of the flat terrain a hit among leisure cyclists who prefers to enjoy the tranquility. Moreover: this cycling holiday can be done early springtime or late autum.
