Lands of Arneo and Negramaro - Trekking - Stage #2

Surrounded by olive groves and scents of Salento, you go back up in the Arneo inland. The colors are bright up to the vineyards of Salice Salentino. The landscapes are flat and linear but never dull or obvious. On the way you will encounter many olive groves where to stop and enjoy the shade.

Technical description: The route is flat and not very difficult, suitable for every kind of hiker. We recommend not to do it during the months of July and August due to excessive sun exposure. Bring water supply.

An ancient legend tells that a treasure was hidden by bandits within the walls of the old tower of the sixteenth century. But the real treasures are the products coming from the farm: jams, olive oil and pasta. From the tower you can enjoy a spectacular view on the Arneo.

MUSEO DEL VINO DELLA TERRA D'ARNEO

Developed within a '30s winery, the wine museum shows a series of finds from the farm: testimonies of rural life, of the production of wine and of the domestic life in the typical farmhouse of Salento.
