Six nights in the Lecce's Baroque capital city, exploring Salento and its artistic beauties, its wineries and its amazing coastlines in the east and the west.
From €550 per person
Guided tour of Lecce by night, the Florence of the South. Lecce has got ancient origins; historical-artistic evidences date back to the Messapic and Roman Age until the Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque times. Lecce is almost completely Baroque-decorated, and it has its own style called "Barocco Leccese".
Thanks to the local crumbly stone - the so called "Stone of Lecce" (light colour and easily workable) - buildings with very fine decorations of a unique beauty and elegance have been made: they are present all over the historical city centre either in the churches and monuments or on balconies and terraces of private residences.
The 17th and the 18th century have particularly characterized the look of Lecce: Piazza Duomo, the Episcopal Palace, Piazza S. Oronzo, the Amphitheatre, the Basilica of S. Croce.
Alternatively day tour in Otranto, Castro and Vaste, two charming coastal towns and an ancient village in the hinterland with Messapian walls, Aragonese castles and Byzantine frescoes.
