At the beginning of October it was nice to walk the small historic part of Peschici when many tourist has gone and the city slows down. At that time also many tourist shops and also restaurants close and you can stroll the cobbled street with white-washed houses in more relaxed manner. If you do not come by car it is easy to find free parking within 5 minutes walk from the old.

When in Puglia Peschici is a town you shouldn't miss out on. Ok, Puglia has so many wonderful spots. But this is one of the very top.

It's a beautiful white-washed old town, sitting on top of a cliff, just by the ocean. The Historic Center is pretty compact, it's an easy stroll. Some streets are cobbled, so be aware of that in case you have a wheelchair or a stroller.

Of course you can't drive into the Historic Center, so you drop your car in the new part of town. There are several blue zones with (limited) free parking. But these fill up fast. There are two bigger parking lots (prepaid meter) on Via Monte Santo, south of the Center, but still in walking distance.

The Center starts at the Torre Del Ponte, on a smaller square. The Via Roma is the main drag leading through the Centro Storico. Lined with countless restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops, arts & craft shops and more. Via Colombo has some of these too, but less in numbers. Be sure to check on some side streets as well (like the Via Forno).
The Piazza de Popolo is a good place to sit down and have a drink or a meal. And watch the world go by. Try "La Taverna". Good food for great prices.

The Castello Medioevale sits a the northern end of town, on top of the cliff. That's as far as you go. From here you could go down to the small harbour and the beach.

The town is just a sight by itself. It's nice to wander around this small center. Really feels like Greece at times. The style, the colours. It's such a bright, happy and lively place to be.

A town that time forgot, well except for all the souvenir shops. Peschici is off the beaten path for most tourists and English is not common here . i survived on this one phrase and lots of hand gestures, Mi dispiace tanto il mio italiano è terribile usually gets a smile. we took a walk around the town a few times while we were in the area and found new things each time, it is especially lovely in the evening, great place to people watch.

The houses in the couple of old streets are mainly occupied by prullaria shops and have therefor taken away all of the charm that a historical centre may bring. Too bad, this could have been a lovely place. The tourist area is vaste with many restaurants and bars.

The Centro Storico is lovely, narrow lanes, friendly people and some interesting shops. Of particular interest was the pottery, lovely colours and shapes, also some handmade jewelry.
Lovely place.

This cliff-top village is a great place to explore. It is full of narrow passageways where you turn a corner and are rewarded with a view out onto a blue sea, framed by the white walls of the buildings. The walled village and the town outside offer plenty of good restaurants offering local specialities at reasonable prices.

The city centre is a maze of alleys and narrow streets. The typical Mediterranean architecture with its white houses has been quite well preserved here. Most of the small shops, restaurants, and bars lay along the 2 main streets (Via Castello and Via Colombo), where every night hundreds of people crave for ice creams, pizzas, souvenirs. But try to escape the crowd and find your own spot in one of the alleys, they are just charming and so peaceful!
Try to visit the center in different times over the day, you'll find the same spots looking amazingly different: in the morning tourists and locals do their shopping for the day. In summertime, midday is a desert: no one is around between 2 and 4 (guess why? it's damn hot!), you can play soccer in the same corners which are overcrowded in the night. Dinnertime is when the city center starts living again. From 10 pm tons of tourists flow form the surroundings, turning from family-like to party-like activities (though Peschici is not at all a party-town!).

Peschici is wonderful place to spend as much time as you have to spend.

Yes it is off the beaten track, but that makes it more appealing not less so.

The scenery is gorgeous, the centro storico is adorable, the people are amazing and the food and wine isn't too bad either :)

Take your time and wander in and out of all the little streets, enjoy some delicious gelato amd other treats as you check out the scene, the stores, the beach and life in small town Italy.

We were there in early June which is a near perfect time to go---no crowds, no noise, nothing but bliss.

Rent an appartment and buy groceries daily, prep your own food etc as we did and you will find yourself deperately wanting to stay so much longer than your original plans first indicated.

Peschici is one of the many little secrets of Italy. If you go, have a wonderful time---just don't spoil it by telling too many people tho :)

Absolutely charming village. Whitewashed houses and Cobblestone streets. Very ancient.It was wonderful to visit because it was the home of my husbands grandmother.Lovely restaurants and souvenir shops. The old castle was a reminder of how brutal it was in that century. The village sits atop a steep cliff overlooking the Adriatic which made it even more breathtaking!!!
