GO ON THE TERRACE OF THE MONUMENT TO THE SAILOR AFTER A TOUR IN MOTOBOAT
Take the motorboat (small boat that runs from the center and the district Casale as if it were a regular bus) from the dock of Montenegro and enjoy the short ride in the sea to the delightful village of Pescatori. After a pleasant walk along the promenade, from where you can appreciate the skyline of the center, climb the XX steps (try to count them) to get to the entrance of the Monument and its panoramic terrace where you will face a breathtaking view of the city and its magnificent natural harbor in the form of deer horns.
If you are visiting with children you can take them to the historic Casale playground, a few steps from the Monument. The tall pines will guarantee you shade and refreshment.
GO TO THE STAIRS OF THE ROMAN COLUMNS AND LOSING BETWEEN THE HISTORIC CENTER’S NEAREST TOWNS
How to give up a selfie with the background of the monument symbol of Brindisi? And after enjoying the ancient beauty, go for a walk through the pearls of the historic center.
WALKING AT THE SUNSET BY THE SEA WITH ICE CREAM
Relax by strolling along the promenade at sunset time when the red of the sun will give you suggestive nuances to the glimpses of your path and the palm trees will project you into an oriental atmosphere of a thousand and one nights.
BREAKFAST AT THE BAR
The Brindisi doc can not give up breakfast at the bar with the ever-present coffee and a wide selection of desserts: from traditional croissants to the typical pasticciotto with cream or in its variants to cream-black cherry or chocolate. And if the heat does not give you respite, order an ice coffee with almond milk … a delight !!
The frit is a must for those who want to immerse themselves in the gastronomic culture of Brindisi. It is an irresistible fried calzone filled with mozzarella and tomato.
THE COLORS, PERFUMES AND SOUNDS OF THE FRUIT MARKET
In Brindisi there are two fruit and vegetable markets not to be missed if you want to taste seasonal fruit and vegetables or simply for a stroll around the stalls: the one located in the central market square and the larger one in the S. Angelo district. If you have little time choose the one in the center where, in a quiet atmosphere, you can opt for the delicious fresh products displayed on the counters and together admire the nineteenth-century Art Nouveau shed. In the evening, the same square becomes a food and wine lounge overlooked by various restaurants with varied menus.
If you have more time available not to be missed is the visit to the market of Sant’Angelo to get overwhelmed by a vortex of colors, scents and cries, in a joyful synthesis of images of the most colorful South.
MAKE A DEAL AT THE THURSDAY’S MARKETS
For the women of Brindisi, Thursday is sacred: there is the market. In the Sant’Elia district, hundreds of stalls offer clothing, shoes, household products, plants and so on and so forth. An unmissable experience to find what you are looking for at great prices and to immerse yourself in the cheerful and engaging atmosphere of a market that is one of the biggest in Puglia.
