Salento Holidays

Salento is the name given to the southernmost peninsula of Puglia where the Itria Valley ends and is home to some pretty whitewashed towns such as Gallipoli and Ostuni. The beautiful city of Lecce is also well worth a visit to see the fantastic, flamboyant baroque architecture and Roman amphitheatre. As the peninsula is narrow the beach is never far away and here some of the best beaches are to be found with white sand and crystalline waters.

Inghams operate a telephone Rep service in Salento.
