BEST OF LECCE TOUR

Half-day private tour of Lecce including all the highlights

Tour Description

Visit one of the most beautiful cities of Southern Italy with a 2.5-hour private tour and choose between the morning or sunset time.

Your licensed, top rated, local guide will accompany in a relaxing walking tour through the city center, to discover what makes Lecce the right mix between the elegance of Florence and the richness of Baroque style expressed through its squares, monuments and churches.

Your journey will start at the obelisk, in Porta Napoli, where your guide will reveal the meaning of the dolphin that bites a Crescent moon, graven on it. Then,  through the typical paved alleys  proceed to the heart of old town.

You will be amazed in front of the facades of Palazzo dei Celestini and the church of Santa Croce, emblems of local Baroque architecture, rich of decorations similar to precious embroidery.

Walking through the off-the-beaten paths, you will listen to nice anecdotes  about the places on your way, like a noble residence that was used as a casino in the past.

Arrived at Piazza Duomo you will discover an unusual square, closed by beautiful buildings, with only one access. Stop there to take the best photos with the Duomo and the bishop’s palace on the back.

The tour will end in Piazza Sant’Oronzo, the patron of the city, whose statue is standing on top of a Roman column, previously placed at the end of the Via Appia, the road that from the III century B.C, connected Rome to the harbour  of Brindisi, 30 kilometres away from Lecce.

Following the suggestions of the guide, you could also taste the most famous pastry of Lecce, the “pasticciotto”, or in summertime, quench your thirst with a “coffee on the rock”.
