This practically flat trail follows farm trails or sparsely used paved roads. This trail can also be done by mountain bike.
The trail is fairly easy to follow allowing you to enjoy the walk and not stare at your GPS every 5 min.
This hike can be combined with this one:
Brindisi to San Pietro Vernotico via Tuturano
The hike starts at the Train Station of San Pietro Vernotico. After passing a supermarket and some bars, the track takes you quickly out of town on small roads. The next 5 km, you'll be walking through the fields until you enter Squinzano. On the way into town, you'll pass by 2 supermarkets, a bar and 2 pharmacies.
From Squinzano, it's a short 3 km walk to Trepuzzi. In this town, you'll also a pass by a cafe and a supermarket, but keep in mind that many stores close between 12:00 and 16:00, so the supermarket might be closed. When you are in Trepuzzi, you are around half way of your trip. You're unlikely to find any places where you can buy any food or drinks for the 10 km.
After Trepuzzi, the track goes into the direction of Arnesano and it a bit of a detour. I've spend quite some time looking for a more direct route, but due to the highway, the train tracks and the industrial zone, all the alternatives lead you to roads where traffic is likely flying by at high speed.
This route will take you on windy country tracks until you get very close to Lecce. As you get into Lecce, you'll find plenty of bars and cafes, but I also marked a supermarket for your convenience.
The track finishes and the train station, which will bring you back to San Pietro Vernotico.
