Despite the tremendous work of teachers to prepare for the final report and the closure of the program, everyone enjoyed the picturesque narrow streets of the old town, the tour of the Greno-Roman colony Rodi Garganico and the beautiful Peschici. During the planned boat ride on the coastline, the early rainy weather turned into an ally for us to enjoy the beauties of the area even more. Exiting the lighthouse of Agia Efimia we ended up in the famous caves of the area, which reminded us of something of the blue caves of Zakynthos
But nothing lasts for ever! On September 23, we said goodbye to the friends we have made during the last two years along with the wonderful love story of Cristalda and Pizzomunno, a trademark of Vieste.
