Gallipoli is a charming town located in the Salento peninsula, which is the southernmost part of the Puglia region in southern Italy. The name “Gallipoli” is derived from the Greek words “kalle” and “polis,” meaning “beautiful city,” which aptly describes its picturesque setting.

Gallipoli is referred to as “the pearl of Salento” due to its stunning coastline, beautiful beaches, and the crystal-clear waters of the Ionian Sea. The town is situated on a limestone island connected to the mainland by a 16th-century bridge. The historic center of Gallipoli is characterized by narrow winding streets, Baroque architecture, and a charming waterfront.
