Brindisi is a city in the region of Apulia in southern Italy, the capital of the province of Brindisi, on the coast of the Adriatic Sea. Brindisi’s cuisine is simple, starting with flour or unrefined barley, which is less expensive than wheat. Moreover, they also produce red wines and rose wines made from grapes. Dreaming of unique, special wines, Italian cuisine, tours, excursions, and so much more? Well, I would definitely read this article if I were you.

Swabian Castle of Brindisi is a port and is always nice in any weather. The beautiful castle was made thanks to the Navy. The beautiful castle provides the possibility to organize parties and eat there as there is a restaurant which offers many excellent dishes. The disadvantage of the place is that people can’t visit the area freely because it’s a military zone; the advantage is that uncivilized people cannot spoil the historic castle. Brindisi port is a very beautiful example of maritime fortification with several successive historical stratifications.

Parco Naturale Regionale is a place that has large plants, a bit like in the famous oasis of Orbetello, and one must bear in mind the environmental transformation of the 60s, which allowed in the name of a controversial industrial progress the devastation of extensive wetlands. The Regional Park of Saline is considered a priority habitat, by ways of its extraordinary plants, its sandbanks and the richness of its bird life. A real environmental education center for the area, often overlooked.
