Introducing Brindisi

Like all ports, Brindisi has its seamy side, but it's also surprisingly slow paced and balmy, particularly the palm-lined Corso Garibaldi linking the port to the train station and the promenade stretching along the interesting seafront.

The town was the end of the ancient Roman road Via Appia, down whose weary length trudged legionnaires and pilgrims, crusaders and traders, all heading to Greece and the Near East. These days little has changed except that Brindisi's pilgrims are sun-seekers rather than soul-seekers.
