Archaeologists have unearthed the remains of more than 20 successive settlements in Jericho, the first of which dates back 11,000 years (9000 BCE) almost to the very beginning of the Holocene epoch of the Earth's history. One of Jericho’s primary sources of income is Christian tourism. A cable car takes Christian pilgrims up the hill to the Mount of Temptation. The Monastery of the Temptation sitting on a cliff overlooking the city of Jericho and the Jordan Valley is built upon the summit of the Mount of Temptation, rising 350 meters above sea level. For centuries the monks have lived in the caves that dot the mountain of Temptation. less

The Hotel was built on a hilltop on the plan of the ancient masseries, the old apulian farmhouses as a comfortable 4 star resort, a few steps from one of the most pristine seas in Italy. Like the old farmhouses it has its own orchard where seasonal fruits and vegetables are grown for its kitchen. Their family restaurant on the beach right below the hotel is a hot spot and serves the freshest local sea food. From San Gregorio one can hire a boat to ride along the coastline which is dotted with Paleolithic caves and endless coves for bathing. The trip continues to Leuca and its lighthouse. This is the southernmost tip of the peninsula where the Ionian sea and the Adriatic sea meet. If one is in the mood for culture the city Lecce is very close by. This is a jewel of a baroque city with dramatic architecture and a lively scene. Highly recommended. 73053 Loc.
