Gallipoli coast

Walked along Gallipoli coast northwards – not that interesting and a very grey day, with just a hint of sun as it set. did get a decent view of the old town from afar though! And also saw an impressive murmuration of Starlings.

Train from Lecce to Gallipoli and short walk to b&b Anxa, via Parini 7, This was a spacious room, with my own bathroom across the hall. No one else was stopping there at the time so I had breaklfast to myself…and have to say this was the best continental breakfast I’ve ever been served in b&b. Absolutely masses to eat and impossible to finish all.  Cold meats, cheeses, pastries, coffee, fresh juice etc – filled the table! Didn’t reckon much to Gallipoli though, poor weather didn’t help, but the old town just didn’t have an character and the modern town was basically a single high street with sterile kind of shops and restaurants. No desire ever to go back here!
