Santa Maria di Leuca sits at the most southern point of Puglia with two promontories, Punta Ristola and Punta Meliso, jutting out into the sea. Along the promenade are villas built in various styles, each with a bagnarola on the shore – stone or wooden bathing huts creating a spa or pool just for one, for ladies to be able to bathe in private.

Lunch in Santa Maria di Leuca included a pie-like dish. When the bread lid was opened it was baby octopus and gnocchi in a delicious sauce, to be eaten with pieces of the bread to soak up the sauce. This is called scarpetta, when you use bread to mop up the sauce.

About Italia!

We have a splendid line-up of features to inspire your travels this month: our cover star Lake Maggiore has a wealth of stunning locations to explore, both around its shores and on the lake itself. If you like a good hike, our itinerary around the byways of a small corner of Maremma will defi nitely stretch your legs. For cricket fans we have the extraordinary tale of a most unlikely team – and they are really rather good! We have e-biking in the majestic Dolomites and we meet a 3-star chef there who’s really making a difference. And for culture vultures, we have the story of the rise, fall and rise again of Venice’s aptly-named La Fenice opera house.
