Brindisi is one of the main cities of Salento peninsula and the region of Apulia. It is an important industrial centre facing the Adriatic sea, with a particularly developed port of strategic importance for traffic and maritime connections with Greece and the Eastern Mediterranean.
The origins of the city date back to the Roman period: probably founded by Illyrian populations, it became important with the Messapians who made it a royal headquarter. With the conquest of Rome, Brindisi acquired even more importance because of its strategic position: port for the East and connected to the capital of the Empire through the Via Appia and Via Traiana. With the fall of Rome, Brindisi subsequently passed through a series of dominations (Goths, Byzantines, Swabians, Angevins, Aragonese, Venetians and Bourbons) before becoming part of the Kingdom of Italy.
City of extraordinary naturalistic beauty, Brindisi also offers its visitors various artistic and cultural cues: from the archaeological areas testifying the presence of Roman period to buildings dating back to the Middle Ages (especially many churches), as well as monuments built from the Renaissance until today.
