Cycle to Roman Ruins

Cycle to Roman Ruins
Back to archive

It is around a ten minute cycle ride to the 4 BC ruins at Egnazia. The site is well preserved and an excellent museum details the history in a collection of artefacts such as ceramics, sculptures, coins and utensils. Stroll along Egnazia’s stone roads, past the defensive walls that stood 7 metres high, envisaging the busy life of this ancient city. There are also well preserved 5 BC Messapian tombs on view.

 

The country lanes outside La Peschiera are bordered by small farms and the sea, cycling along you will see the conical roofs of a beachside trulli, a former store for fishermen or farmers. Cycle back for a refreshing dip in our pools, or to relax on your private beach.
