Breakfast at the hotel.

Departure to Galle on the coast road (170 km, 3 hours and a half). Along the way, we will visit Weligama to observe the arts of these famous fishermen. The days of very hot during the intense hours of sun usually retire of the sticks until the evening falls and it refreshes.

Arrival in Galle where we will visit the Portuguese Fort of Galle a city located in the southwest of Sri Lanka 119km from Colombo. It is believed that the present city of Galle was the port of the ancient Tharsis to which the Hebrew king Solomon sent for ivory and the peacocks indicated in the Bible. The city of Galle was known as Gimhathiththa (then Ibn Battuta in the fourteenth century referred to it as Qali) before the arrival of the Portuguese in the sixteenth century when it was the main port of the island of Ceylon. Galle had its apogee in the eighteenth century before the arrival of the British who boosted the development of Colombo.

We eill continue the route to Colombo by motorway (120 km, 1 hour and a half approx). Depending on the time of arrival in Colombo, we will tour the city of Colombo, where we will see the Independence square, the Fort, the Bazaar, the Hindu Temple, the Cinnamon Gardens and the Old Parliament. Colombo like many capital cities in developing countries is changing rapidly although in some places the old-world charm still remains.
