The southernmost city on the island, Galle combines colonial-era history with a tropical feel and climate.
Venture out of the city with trips to Hikkaduwa (Hikkaduwa Beach, Turtle Hatchery Hikkaduwa, &more) and Mirissa (Coconut Tree Hill, Mirissa Beach, &more). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Galle Fort, enjoy some diversion at Sithma Gems & Jewellery, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Sea Turtle Farm Galle Mahamodara.

To see reviews, more things to do, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Galle attractions tool.

Rome, Italy to Galle is an approximately 18.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 4.5 hours traveling from Rome to Galle. In September, Galle is somewhat warmer than Rome - with highs of 36°C and lows of 30°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Thu) early enough to drive to Bentota.
