This is a small office but very convenient in one of the main squares. There are free maps available, of course, but the staff could have had more ideas of things that were must see in a limited visit time.

they sold me postcard stamps for the US for 2.50 Euro per stamp and told me to mail them only in their own yellow mail boxes. They said it's usually 5 days to the US. It has now been 30 days, and not one post card has arrived.
Both branches of the TI office provided for free only black and white maps, which were not adequate for navigating Lecce. Finally we found a wine store with free colored maps, which made it much easier.
I believe that Lecce deserves more from their TI if they are to become a major tourist city.

This tour was by far my favorite. Our driver name was Antonio he took pictures with us and of us during the whole trip showed us an additional spot that wasn’t included in the tour gave us the local vibe and dropped us off at our hotel door front at no extra charge. Bring a snorkel because you will want to see everything the water is so clear ! I would recommend this tour over the almafi coast or the island Capri and I didn’t both those tours a day and two days before this one and I’m 100% coming back to do this tour

Located behind an impressive portico in the square next to the Roman ampitheatre. A good selection of brochures and maps in different languages though the staff seemed rather disengaged unless you were actively seeking to book a tour.Not the worst but certainly far from the standard of some of the excellent Tourist Information centres we have been in during our tours of Italy, and yes, we are fluent in the language!

This tour is more expensive through TripAdvisor than in the tourist office (60€ only).
Be aware that this is a cargo tour: The driver brings you from A to B and tells you in Italian in which direction to walk to find the center.
You should expect to be picked up 20 min late and be dropped off 1 hour before 6 p.m.
We haggled with him to extend our stay in Alberobello to 2 h, which is really worth to combine sightseeing with lunch.
In total a good Tour - good to combine these four cities!

We have booked two tours this week with Antonio through the tourist office. Both very enjoyable, and Antonio had a good sense of humour at getting us back on time and explaining with phone translation when we 4 aussies did not comprehend very much Italian.

Thanks Antonio, great driving!

I went to the tourist office in the Lecce castle today to obtain some city brochures and enquire about a city tour. The young lady in the tourist office indicated there were 1hr 45min tours in English costing 15 euro or 10 euro in Italian. For the tour to proceed they needed at least x6 people. I asked if there were any free city tours that had more certainty of proceeding. The young lady who was 20-25 said that no one in the world does free city tours and accused us of lying! One can see by our posts that we are experienced travelers who have visited many corners of the world. So I’d like to tell this young lady to grow up and learn some manners and perhaps go and travel the world before she comments on what she does not know. My second point relates to the fact that if Italy is in a financial crisis and one wanted to work and help their tourism wouldn’t you take one tourist and not wait for 6. And my third point, why is it 50% more expensive in English than Italian?

As a footnote to this article, it has been brought to my attention that there are free city tours of Lecce!

Well situated in the centre near the amphitheater and very helpful staff who spoke English well. Provided all the information need when visiting this beautiful city, good insights on what to see and when with good maps and information booklets.

Located in the center of town and there are tours available from this location. We did not partake in the tours, just information of the town of Lecce.

We tried one of the many tours advertised here, to the Adriatic coast, and it turned out to be a taxi transfer in a car with a driver who spoke no English at all and who had to use Google translate to answer the simplest questions, despite us being assured beforehand that it would be a minibus with a fully English-speaking guide. We spent five hours in a car, paid 60 Euros each (despite the advertised cost being 40 Euros) being driven round the most beautiful scenery imaginable, without learning anything about the history, culture, wildlife, or any other aspect of what we were seeing. When we expressed our disappointment at the Tourist Information Centre on our return, the lady there couldn’t care less, and basically blamed us for not understanding that ‘tour’ actually meant ‘transfer’. She was extremely patronising and unpleasant, and not the usual ambassador you would expect in a tourist information centre aimed at welcoming visitors to this beautiful city.

Dear madam, We are very sorry that you were not satisfied with our service. We offer this kind of tour (one of our best tour) since years and our customers are always very satisfied. As indicated in our brochures this is a tour without a guided service. Furthermore, this is a tour with minimum 3 partecipants, but we give the possibility to start the tour with less people,which of course, will have to cover the costs for three. Anyway i hope to see you very soon in our beautiful city.
