Pride on the Beach of Italy 2018: The Programme

Each morning, our guests will have plenty of options to choose from. They can relax while taking a stroll along the windy streets of the old town of Gallipoli; sip cocktails by the pool or head down to the beach.

Pride attendees guests will receive unlimited VIP access to Lido Por do Sol, the only gay-run lido in Gallipoli bay. Lido Por do Sol is set on a beautiful long stretch of sandy beaches and has relaxing chill-out music throughout the day. Excellent cocktails and great local food will be the perfect complement for the day.

For guests feeling curious or adventurous and willing to explore the amazing surroundings, guided excursions to some of the most beautiful locations in the area are on offer, rich in cultural and natural beauty. Our guests can visit Santa Maria di Leuca at the Southernmost tip of Puglia, where they can enjoy lunch by the seaside, a cooking lesson trying their hand at local dishes and tasting sessions of typical Salento liquors.
