Ostuni Italy, or the "white town" is a small town located by the beautiful Adriatic coast near the heal of the "Italian Boot." The city earned its nickname because of the bright white houses in the older part of town, making the sight truly unique. Surrounded by lush green fields it creates breathtaking contrasts against its white city walls and turquoise waters located about 8 km from the city centre. City's architecture is in harmony with the surrounding landscape made of olive trees that reach out all the way to the sea. A intertwined maze of alleyways through the gleaming old city with doors painted in shades of blue, turquoise and green as well as spectacular views of the Adriatic - give Ostuni Italy more of a Greek feel.
