Guided tour of Lecce
Discover the charms of the so-called “Florence of the South in the evening, when Lecce's Baroque architecture and enchanting atmosphere are at their finest. Admire stunning limestone palaces and illuminated monuments, then wrap up your evening over a traditional Italian aperitivo.
When the sun sinks down, Lecce seems to glow from within—the ornate buildings of the city center were carved painstakingly from the region's cream-hued limestone, and the city softens around the edges as the night lights come up. Meet your guide and wind your way down narrow streets and across expansive piazzas after dusk, admiring the elaborate facades of churches and regal, white-washed palaces.
At St. Oronzo Square, in the heart of the old town, admire the half-buried Roman amphitheater, which archaeologists believe would have held up to 25,000 spectators during the town's Roman heyday. Built in the 2nd century, this incredible site was forgotten for years and only began to be excavated in the years following World War II.
After your leisurely stroll, head to a lively district where residents gather to eat, drink, and take a break with friends and family. Pull up a chair for a traditional Salento-style aperitivo. Sip favorite local beverages, and sample appetizers that reflect the peninsula region's well-known, rustic cuisine.
