After exploring Lecce and relaxing in Otranto, my sister and I had one more stop on our Italian holiday through Puglia. We’d booked one night at a masseria outside Ostuni which we were really looking forward to (more on the masseria next week– yup, this place was so special it’s getting its own post).
The picturesque city of Ostuni is often compared to the famous towns of Greece, thanks to its whitewashed houses and dramatic hilltop position. From the edges of its old town you can look down the hill and glimpse the Mediterranean to the North, and fertile farmland in all other directions. Within its network of narrow streets are countless nooks and crannies, begging to be admired and photographed. Though we only spent a few hours in the town, both my sister and I agreed that it was the most beautiful one we’d visited on this trip, and we’d love to return one day.
