It is really worthwhile visiting the historic city of Brindisi, there are beautiful cathedrals and castles, many of them with charmingly designed gardens. However, architecture is not the city's one and only attraction. You will also find wonderful beaches and at night you can have a drink or eat something along the attractive seaside promenade.
The city has well over 90,000 inhabitants.
Brindisi lies in the south of Italy, in the Apulia region, this region forms the ‘high heel’ of Italy's "boot". The sea is called the Strait of Ótarno, the connection between the Adriatic Sea and the Ionian Sea.
From way back, Brindisi depends on trade between the Italian Peninsula and ports along the Ionian Sea, the Greek islands and the Greek mainland. Brindisi was the final destination of Via Appia, one of the main roads that led to Rome (like all roads did at that time).
Viniculture also plays a very important part, as well as the cultivation of olives and its processing into olive oil.
Furthermore tourism has a significant importance. Not only Brindisi itself, but also historic towns like Francavilla Fontana, Lecce and Ostuni draws tourists, and do not forget the beaches along the coast.
The city's international airport, Brindisi Papola Casale, lies approximately six kilometers to the north of the city center and can easily be reached by highway 16.
Brindisi has local buses, but do not expect that they always run according to the timetable. Moreover there are regional bus and train connections, including connections to Bari, Lecce and Taranto.
Ferries to the Greek islands in the Ionian Sea (Corfu, Igoumenitsa, Cephalonia, Zante and Patras) depart from the port.
Traffic and parking
The best means of transport to explore the Apulia region is by car. However it is recommendable to avoid the city centers. The streets are not only busy and narrow, but it is also unclear where you can and cannot park and whether or not you need to pay for it. It is also recommended to explore towns like Ostuni and Lecce on foot.
Brindisi has good hotels and guesthouses to offer. You will find the better hotels and holiday resorts along the seashore. Lecce also has nice hotels, often in historic buildings. The best example is the Patria Palace, which is located in the city center, not cheap but very stylish.
