Pizzica Evenings

Once a week (from June to August), Masseria Bandino offers its guests an evening dedicated to the 'pizzica', the Salento folk dance. Totally immersed in the local folk music culture and accompanied by expert musicians and dancers, our guests will be taken on an evocative and enthralling journey in which music, dance and tradition will take centre stage.

Guided Tours

In cooperation with the Municipality of Otranto and thanks to the Otranto Card, which will be given to you at the hotel, you will be able to participate in free guided tours of the city of Otranto.


Faro di Palascia

A journey of discovery to a lighthouse, that of Punta Palascìa in Otranto, is undoubtedly one of the most intense 'emotional experiences'. Located at the most easterly point in Italy, the first place where the sun rises, the view it offers is a breathtaking spectacle, where the imposing and secure structure dominates the Adriatic coast of the Salento peninsula, and around it only sea, sea and more sea.

Miele Experience

The experience takes us on a discovery of the wonderful world of bees, where in the countryside, equipped with safety equipment, we will have a close look at a beehive to discover the magic of honey. 

Food and wine
