Lecce Street Food
Lecce is a beautiful city. We visited for the day and pre booked the street food tour. This turned out to be a great decision. Antonella was a great guide with perfect English and a lovely sense of humour. She arrived bang on time and proceeded to tell us the history of this lovely old city with many stop offs to sample the local street food. We didn’t need to eat again that day. Everything was done at a gentle pace and we would highly recommend this tour to get an understanding of this lovely place

Antonella was Amazing!
Nov 2019
This three hour tour exceeded expectations. Not only could you see the highlights of Lecce (from the outside -- you would have to go back on your own to the ones that require paid admission), but the food part of the it alone would have justified the price. Antonella knows everything there is to know about Lecce and happily shares it all. There were so many food stops I lost track, but the party and ice cream was wonderful, as was the baked rusticate! Highly recommended!

Not one to take guided tours, I am really glad that my friends and I took this tour with Antonella. Knowledgeable, well organised, and a font of information. It was lovely walk with history, local food, and to have the tour at night was a treat with Lecce all lit up. Antonella was a true find and I would do more tours with her if I returned to Puglia.

Lecce is the jewel and Antonella is the jeweler
Antonella, a 40 year native, was waiting for us as we approached our meeting point and greeted us with a warm smile. She gave us an overview of the history of the city and area, including the succession of invaders and some of their residuals. She then compared and and contrasted dominant styles, original and renewed buildings and stonework and symbolic decorations on the major buildings and gates in the historic center. She encouraged dialogue and answered questions in as much depth as requested without seeming to approach any limits to her knowledge. We had no trouble understanding each other.

Woven throughout were 5 stops for food. At the first, we were served friselle, a twice baked dense bread, think dehydrated bagel, that is initially rehydrated to make it chewable, and then saturated with olive oil and topped with fresh diced tomatoes. Delicious and incredibly filling. The second shop featured a plate that included: a. fresh sheep cheese, b. two different taralli, which is a local, flavored, cookie/cracker, c. biscotti and d. 2 ounces of 100% negroamaro. The third one was for a puff pastry filled with tomatoes and melted cheese in a wine bar where wine by the glass is available for purchase. We tried a refreshing white and were pleased. Next was a bakery for a local pastry filled with cream pudding and finally at “the best Gelateria in Lecce” where we had 2 scoops of our choice of flavors.

She also showed us a local unique local art form of statuary made out of papier-mâché. The process involves 10+ stages and looks like the most ornate carved marble statues but at 1/1000 of their weight.

If I had tried to buy the same food I would have spent E30.

Wonderful Evening of Food/History Walking Tour in Lecce
Oct 2019
During our recent October 2019 trip to Lecce, we had the pleasure of having Antonella as our guide for the evening Food/History Walking tour through Lecce's City Centre. Antonella was promptly waiting for us at our appointed time at the Piazza del Duomo. From there Antonella took us on a walking tour to several different places for eating snack type foods and drinking wine as well as giving a history talk about all the city sights. Our tour ended with a stop at a Gelateria. We never felt rushed by Antonella during the tour. Antonella is a wonderful person as well as tour guide. Our tour was approximately 2 1/2 to 3 hours wandering all over Lecce's City Centre.
