Italy’s top spots by Vincenzo (draft)

May 10, 2014

Major cities (best during spring or fall…during summer they are too hot & humid)
– Roma
– Firenze
– Venezia

Best Beach & amazing food
– Salento (south of Puglia) especially Otranto
Here are my top two favorite restaurants
Agriturismo Il Contadino
Via Azienda Frassanito, 73028 Otranto Lecce, Italy
Order orecchiette alla crudaiola, grigliata mista, antipasto del contadino

And in the center of Otranto
Ristorante Da Sergio Di Benegiamo Giuseppe E C. Snc
Corso Giuseppe Garibaldi, Lecce, Italy
Order the set of “antipasti” and then spaghetti or linguine ai frutti di mare

Whether you are a group of friends, a couple of whatever age and especially if you have kids one of the best places to stay is
Serra Degli Alimini 1
Via Alimini, 73028 Otranto Lecce, Italy
– amazing sandy beach with super clean and transparent water that is shallow for many meters away from the shore (like 15-20-25mts) so very safe for kids but also chill and peaceful for anyone else
– no cars or major streets
– quick walk under a beautiful vegetation to get to the beach
– great coffee and cappuccino

Nice towns and monuments
– Trani (Puglia)
– Amalfi & Positano (Campania)

Beautiful monuments
– Castel Del Monte (Puglia)
– Reggia di Caserta (Campania)
