Guided tour of Lecce
Explore the distinctive architecture and rich culture of charming Lecce on this guided walking tour of its historic city center. Marvel at the city’s unique Baroque style, numerous churches, and Roman ruins, and explore why the city has been nicknamed “Florence of the South.”
As you walk down cobblestone streets and through charming squares, your local guide gives you an introduction to the city’s culture and history. Most of the charming Baroque-style monuments adorning the historical center were built between the 16th and the 18th centuries. Due to the abundance of this style, Lecce is often compared to Florence.
Admire the magnificent Basilica di Santa Croce, one of the best examples of Baroque architecture, and see the whitewashed palaces built with local stone.
Continue to St. Oronzo Square and explore the Roman Amphitheater. Once used for gladiator battles, the amphitheater is currently used for different religious and cultural events. Your last stop is Piazza del Duomo, where Lecce Cathedral and other religious buildings are located.
