Explore the treasures of the ‘Florence of South Italy’, under your own steam.

Entering the city of Lecce is like walking into an open-air museum, packed with Baroque and Rococo monuments. Dating back to Roman times, the city flourished from the 16th–18th centuries. Now it’s time for you to explore this stunning golden-limestone-carved world, where you’ll have around two hours to wander through the famous Leccese Baroque architectural wonders. Highlights include the Baroque Santa Croce Basilica, the striking façade of the Governor’s Palace and the huge 2nd-century Roman amphitheatre. And why not try a caffè and a ‘pasticciotto’ pastry in the impressive Piazza Duomo? The choice is all yours.
