New Year’s in Salento: lots of music and shows
Are you already at the computer looking for the ideal destination to spend the last night of the year and welcome 2019? Salento is the place you are looking for. We do not miss anything: concerts in the square to sing and count down with thousands of people; nightclubs where dancing until dawn, unleashing in the dances; restaurants and ‘masserie’ for dinner with every delight of typical dishes of Salento cuisine … Salento at New Year is simply the best.
One of the most important events is the ‘Alba dei Popoli’ in Otranto, in the heart of the town, the traditional end-of-year concert that opens the festivities with national and international guests. The great Big of the music are followed in this long night that ends, as tradition dictates, admiring the first dawn of Italy from Punta Palascia, the easternmost extremity of the whole Puglia (and Italy)
The city centre of Lecce becomes the favourite destination for many, with pubs and bars that stay open until late waiting for the sunrise while sipping a drink. Even the beautiful Gallipoli opens the old town to parties in the square and shows of various kinds, but unmissable are the nightclubs of Gallipoli that organize evenings to say the least memorable on New Year’s Eve, with great DJs from everywhere. Password: pure fun.
In all the villages of the Salento squares come alive thanks to the stands of craft markets and gastronomy, concerts, shows and lots of street entertainment, so you can walk in peace and have fun with family and friends.
For lovers of good food, who love to celebrate by letting pampered and delighting the taste buds, we assure you that the Salento cuisine always gives great satisfaction: people like to eat well, so at New Year expect every kind of goodness, from seafood appetizers, to baked pastas, fresh fish, good wine, and delicious desserts.
