Gallipoli Port

Holiday Travel Guide
Gallipoli Port featuring a marina and general coastal views

Watch fishermen bring in the day’s catch, dine on fresh seafood and spot notable town landmarks at this active port.

Spend a morning or afternoon enjoying the animated activities at Gallipoli Port. The port sits conveniently at the point where Gallipoli’s old town converges with its modern center. It’s a place to observe fishermen at work and sample plates of delicious seafood. At Gallipoli Port you can also visit and appreciate the craftsmanship of some of the town’s centuries-old monuments.

The port has several quays, where a mix of colorful trawlers, freight ships and yachts bob in the water. Stroll along the port’s eastern banks to see anglers counting their catch and repairing their nets. Much of the catch gets sold to the town’s cafés and restaurants. Sample typical dishes, such as sea urchins, at the casual dining options that frame this area of the port.

Also on the port’s eastern side are a collection of interesting buildings. Marvel at the twin façades of the Greek Fountain, which feature bas-reliefs and carved caryatids. Admire the arcaded Baroque frontage of the Sanctuary of St. Maria del Canneto and the humble Church of St. Cristina.

Look west across the water to see the imposing Gallipoli Castle, raised by the Byzantines in the 13th century. Pay attention to its quadrangular form with three towers and a solitary polygonal tower. The castle’s ramparts afford panoramic views and great photography opportunities of the port and townscape.

At the southern edge of the port, quays jut out into the water and are ideal to sit at and gaze across the Ionian Sea. Spot Isola Sant’Andrea and Baia Verde Beach, in the near distance. Come early in the evening, when you can often enjoy the build-up to scenic sunsets.

Gallipoli Port is within comfortable walking distance of major town attractions. Follow meandering streets through the old town district to important works of architecture, including the Cathedral of St. Agatha and the Church of St. Francis Assisi. Parking is available at the larger and more commercial Mercantile Port.

A good option in Gallipoli
"The best part about Hotel 33 Baroni is Sabrina who works at the front desk.
