#budget

Oh, this really depends on your travel plans and an overall budget! To start with, Switzerland is the most expensive country in Europe, but don't get frustrated yet! I'll give you some tips on how you can save some money during your stay and give an approximate budget:👉 Transportation. Swiss cities are quite small, so I totally recommend you to explore them on foot. But even if you want to buy a bus ticket and you think that you will use various routes, just get a daily pass straight. It will cost you around 20 CHF. The best way to get from one city to another is to catch a train, install SBB app on your phone. In order to save money, plan your trips in advance, so you will have a chance to buy Supersaver ticket. This ticket is normally giving you a discount up to 50% of the normal price of your ticket.👉 Food. A meal in an average restaurant will cost around 40 CHF per person with no alcoholic beverage. A cup of coffee is around 7 CHF. The good news is that you can also grab a snack (salad, hot dish or a nice dessert) in local supermarkets for less price! Check out Coop and Migros. My personal recommendation is to get Croque monsieur from Coop! Come in the morning, so you can have it hot and the freshest. 👉 Accommodation prices you can check on Booking, let me know if you will need a recommendation on where to stay based on your city!

#travel#places

There are so many places to visit, but I will mention my favorite ones. 

- The most beautiful city is Lecce, which is often called the Florence of the South due to the abundance of Baroque architecture in its historic center.
- Alberobello’s old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it is famous for trulli houses.
- Ostuni, also known as the white city, is a perfect place for Italian aperitif with a view, as this city is situated on a hill. 
- Polignano a Mare is stunning, its historic center, perched precariously on the cliffs overlooking the Adriatic Sea.
- At the same cost, you will find Otranto - another spectacular clifftop town with its history.- And Gallipoli is located by the Ionian Sea, the old town is situated on a little island and is connected to the mainland by a 16th-century bridge. There you can admire the most beautiful sunsets. 

I’m waiting for you and will be happy to show you all these marvelous places!

You can either rent a car or a bike to go around the island!As for public transport, you can either use a bus or a local tuk-tuk. This is a funny small car, which also makes quite a lot of noise. By the way, in our tour we are taking you all over the island on a comfortable minivan (with AC and cold water).

#weather#travel

Well, it's quite warm but bearable! On the beach, the temperature is around 30°C (86°F) all year round but it doesn't feel exhausting because of the ocean breeze! Of course, if you are not used to a warm climate it's always good to bring sunprotection creams and a hat to cover your head. Also consider that there are mountain areas and jungles (must-see as well!), where the temperature is moderate and even cool at night.

#visa#travel

Not at all! According to our experience that's the easiest visa procedure we've met: you just need to full-fill an online entrance application, pay for all the relevant costs (e.g. insurance) and you are all set to go! The visa is given for 30 days at first and then you can renew it if you want to.

#travel#duration

We would say at least dedicate two weeks to exploring the whole island!If you are staying here for less, most likely you won't be able to see all the main attractions and be in a rush. Even though some people think that Sri Lanka is a small island, it's going to take you a few hours to get from one place to another!
