Gallipoli

IMG_0055GALLIPOLI my land. The city where I was born and raised, an ancient Ionian seaside town where history and culture join on popular traditions and celebrations. Someone once said “Gallipoli is like a siren on a rock in the sea … enchants people’s hearts.

You have just to prick up ears to listen the comments of the huge amount of tourists who flock Gallipoli in the summer. The recurring sentence is always the same: “Gallipoli is beautiful!
Unfortunately, today Gallipoli is victim of an unscrupulous and savage tourism which has marred the genuine beauty she had until the start of 90s. In this page I would to propose a gallery including some of my shots. I posted also a number of references where you can find detailed information about  Gallipoli and its history.
