Colourful Castellaneta Marina
Situated atop Italy’s booted heel, you can expect stunning scenery from your holidays to Castellaneta Marina, views that encompass beautiful beaches, clear waters and to your west when looking out from the shore, sights of Taranto. Combining an exotic landscape with Italy’s famous cuisine and culture is one of the most alluring aspects when thinking of travelling to this part of the country. Not only will you be able to watch the gentle waves kissing the golden sands of glorious beaches, but you can also do so from the comfort of a fantastic restaurant – one that offers exquisite foods such as traditional pastas and pizzas.
Authenticity along the shore
Mixed among the beachside bars and restaurants are a number of cultural intrigues that present history as well as Italian architecture. Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta is a picturesque building that adds to the atmosphere of Castellaneta Marina holidays, although the main attraction is of course the beach itself. Sunbathe on a sunbed, get involved in a range of water sports or venture from the shores aboard a luxury yacht, passing the coastal towns of Puglia as you go. If you want to fully immerse yourselves within Italian culture then make sure you head towards Martina Franca. Not only is the town situated among some of the best scenery in the area, the Valle d’Itria – the area surrounding the town – is interspersed with numerous historical Trulli. Trulli present the perfect opportunity to travel back in time to when pretty stone huts were all the rage. Holidays in Castellaneta Marina can then be used to visit Alberobello, where you can find winding streets and picturesque views.
