Brindisi has een known as the «Gateway to the East» and is a city of Messapian origins and an ancient Greek colony. The town acquired great importance and prestige under the Roman rule, becoming the main port for the routes to the eastern lands, and also, a place of culture and commerce. From the 2nd century AD Brindisi was directly connected to Rome through Via Appia, which after passing Taranto, reached the port of Brindisi.
Until around 2010, Brindisi was not the most exciting city to visit. However, since then, a lot has changed. A car-free boulevard has been build and lots of bars and restaurants have been openen in the last few years. The shopping street if full of cute little shops and even big brand found their place in Brindisi. Especially in the summer, the city is full of live, with lots of things to do and see.
