    What to Expect
    Firstly we'll go to Alezio and visit its Messapian museum.Then we'll head towards Sannicola and visit an ancient underground oil mill from the 17th century. Along secondary roads, among olive trees and dry stone local constructions (trulli and pajare), we'll reach Galatone with its imposing Norman castle, the Church of the Crucifix - masterpiece of Leccese baroque style - and the noble palace. 

    After the visit, in about half an hour we'll be at the back of Porto Selvaggio Natural Park to visit a farmhouse and enjoy a tasting of local cheese. Then we'll move on to Santa Caterina, leave our bikes and walk to the nature reserve where we'll spend the rest of the morning and early afternoon. 

    Possibility to rent a canoe and reach Porto Selvaggio beach. Back on our bikes we'll cycle along the coast road towards St Mauro church dating back to the Byzantine time and stopping at the Salento Bike Cafè. 

    Return to Gallipoli in the late afternoon.
