Brindisi

Brindisi

Many cruise ships, whose destination are Greek Islands, Croatia and Venice, set sail from Bari. On Taoticket you will find all departures on offer from Brindisi for a fairytale cruise in the Adriatic Sea.
Located in Salento plain along the Adriatic Sea, Brindisi has a magnificent natural port. The province of Brindisi stretches from the coast to the Adriatic Sea and includes areas of great historical interest. For instance, Via Traiana, the eastern part of the Itria Valley or the Roman road of Via Appia, the oldest road of the Roman Empire. In addition, Greece, Turkey and Albania can be easily reached from Brindisi by sea. The main trade traffic concerns coal, fuel oil, natural gas and chemicals.

If your cruise ship sets sail from Brindisi, do not miss the opportunity to visit this beautiful city in Puglia. We recommend you to visit the church of San Benedetto with its bell tower in Apulian Romanesque style, built around 1090 for the Benedictine nuns of Salento.

Do not a performance of the traditional dance of these lands: the pizzica. Its origins date back to the the cult of tarantismo, the belief that some women suffering from hysteria had been bitten by a tarantula. The only way to recover was to dance the pizzica continuously for days accompanied by the rhythm of tambourines, violins and mandolins. Nowadays pizzica is often still danced by young and old locals. There are many shows and artistic events you can attend, especially in the summer months. The traditional cuisine of Brindisi is made up of peasant elements such as barley flour and rich in blue fish, once undervalued but very nutritious. Stop here and try the famous fish soup with a glass of Negroamaro and your cruise will be tastier.
