Overview
More
Cape Palascìa, commonly known as Capo d'Otranto, is Italy's most easterly point. It is situated in the territory of the Apulian city of Otranto, in the Province of Lecce at 40° 7' northing and 18° 31' easting. The lighthouse there, recently renovated, is one of five Mediterranean lighthouses protected by the European Commission. It is often visited by tourists, especially at New Year, since it stands at the point where the dawn of the new year may first be seen in Italy.

Easternmost point of italy where the first sunrise can be enjoyed. Very popular spot for spending NYE but can be crowded. I personally loved in a windy winter morning where the waves and the wind make a fantastic display.

The view is quite attractive, but I would not make a special trip to see it unless you had time to burn.
