City break in Brindisi. Active leisure ideas for Brindisi - attractions, recreation and nightlife

Brindisi 1 Brindisi has always been an important city due to its strategic location and a naturally formed port. In ancient times, the city was a major player in trade between Southern Italy, Greece, and other nations of the Adriatic Sea. This fact has enabled early development of the city and that is one of the reasons why tourists can see so many ancient landmarks and beautiful historical buildings. However, sightseeing is not the only pastime available to travelers in Brindisi. It is a wonderful resort where guests can enjoy sunbathing and relaxation, explore the magnificent port, or make a day-long trip to some of the neighborhood locations, such as Mesagne and Lecce.
Brindisi port is a wonderful place perfect for a leisure stroll. The area is beautiful and offers breathtaking views of the Adriatic Sea. The port area also has a well-developed infrastructure with piers and harbors, both commercial and public ships, various cafes and restaurants offering delicious seafood and fish dishes. Different areas of the port have a different purpose. For example, the Via del mare mostly has commercial shipping docks while the Via Ettore Ciciriello has some tourist ships and offers views of the naval base.
While exploring the port, don’t forget to see the Monument to the Italian Soldiers on the opposite side and then head to the Marina that has much to offer to tourists. In addition to dining venues, there are fishing and sailing boats. Tourists are welcome to hire a boat and enjoy fishing or make a memorable short voyage along the Brindisi coastline. Copyright
