Visited Oria in the last week of October to see our daughter who is on her uni gap year. The whole area is really beautiful with whitewashed buildings and cobbled streets. Would recommend for a quieter italian experience as hardly any tourists were in the area. Great restaurants and gelaterias for the foodies too!

Once parked at the base of the hill, walk up to the old town. It is not a heavily touristed area and is a lovely place to stroll. Sites to see include the cathedral, the castle and the Jewish quarter.

Love strolling the streets of Oria, getting a little bit lost and then finding my way again. Making sure to stop frequently and look up, not to miss any of the stunning balconies.

Oria wasn't part of our itinerary for Puglia but then we booked to stay in a farm between Manduria and Oria and the owner suggested we visit it. A lovely little town built on 7 hills. Not so frequented by tourist so we didn't find all those touristic shops and felt the authenticity of the historical centre with many attractions... More
