Brindisi What To Do
We can start our tour of Brindisi from Piazza Duomo which is the oldest square in the city considered by many to be the most beautiful.
Its beauty is certainly due to the many important buildings that overlook it such as the Cathedral, the Seminary, the Palazzo Balsamo, the Istituto S. Vincenzo, the Provincial Archaeological Museum and the portico of the Knights of Jerusalem.

The Port of Brindisi Built is a sort of natural fjord that resembles, according to some, the horns of a deer, it is the place where ships leave for Greece, Turkey, and the islands.
The Roman Column of Brindisi is a bit the symbol of Brindisi. Until 1500 the columns were two and marked the end of the Via Appia, the street of the streets that connected Rome to Brindisi. At the same time, the columns played an important role in signaling the port. Today only one remains of the two original columns.
