Today, you’ll get to know the age-old sights in the historical city of Brindisi. The walking tour starts at the seafront, where you’ll spot a towering Roman column at the top of a flight of steps. It’s said this pillar marks the end of the Appian Way, one of the earliest and most important roads of the Roman Empire, which connected the city with Rome. Piazza Duomo, or Cathedral Square, is next up. It’s the city’s oldest square, and is bordered by Baroque-style buildings, like the Medieval cathedral it’s named after. Other highlights of the day include the 14th-century Palazzo Granafei-Nervegna, and the Church of San Giovanni al Sepolcro. This circular church was one of the most important places of worship in Brindisi during the Middle Ages. The day concludes with some free time to explore the rest of the city at your own pace, before you make your way back to the port.
