Ostuni Italy

Ostuni Italy

Rather close to the coast, a small town named Ostuni, nicknamed "the white town" is located. Surrounded by lush green fields it creates breathtaking contrasts against its white city walls and turques waters. The city earned its nickname because of the bright white houses in the older part of town, making the sight truly unique. City's architecture is in harmony with the surrounding landscape made of olive trees that reach out to the blue Adriatic sea. A intertwined maze of alleyways through the gleaming white walls with doors painted in shades of blue, turquoise and green as well as numerous views of the Adriatic Sea along the way, give Ostuni more of a Greek feel. Olive oil tasting tours are popular, as the olive oil here is of a particularly fine quality and the ancient olive groves are well worth seeing.
