Silversea Luxury Cruises A Santa Maria Di Leuca

An ordered line of palm trees watches out over the shimmering waves along the huge seafront promenade of appealing Santa Maria de Leuca. Sitting at the tip of the jutting heel of the Salento peninsular, which stretches out into the Adriatic towards Albania, the mighty lighthouse, which towers 102 metres over the waves, is one of the most important in Italy, and it keeps a watchful eye over the narrowing sea pass here.

Ascend high above the picturesque harbour, to the monumental lighthouse that soars 47 metres upwards, into the bright blue sky. It’s still functioning, despite having been erected all the way back in 1864. Climb the seemingly infinite slope of 284 stone steps – or jump in a taxi – to the 18th century Basilica Santuario Santa Maria De Finibus Terrae – the church at ‘the end of the earth’ – to see the charming square that keeps the iconic lighthouse company. From here, you can observe unrivalled views of the Adriatic and Ionian seas merging, and look over the immensity of rippling blue, to spot tiny boats jostling on the waves far below.
