Otranto (private classic tour)

Otranto is a dream of the East. A city able to tell and tell about itself, through the millennia of its history. A story told by the thousand pieces of Pantaleone's mosaic, which with its symbols still fascinates all visitors. And then the story of the battle, between the inhabitants of Otranto and the Ottoman Empire, which still seems to be told by the stones and bones of the Martyrs, killed in 1480 for not having converted to Islam. The blue sea under the walls seems to reflect on the Byzantine paintings of San Pietro, and contrast the great castle. Our tour is not just a description of the city, but a story able to excite, entering the most hidden folds of a fascinating place, which has inspired poets and writers.
