Ostuni is “the white city”. It stands on a high ridge above the Adriatic and the old town centre, with its winding streets, is a real joy to discover.

In late August there is a major festival called the Cavalcade of Saint Oronzo; well worth a visit just for the spectacle of the decorated horses and lavish costumes.

There are many fine restaurants in Ostuni, so it’s well worth going early evening for a wander.
