our first visit to Lecce revealed to us an extraordinary city. The narrow alleys, the ancient and well preserved buildings, the hugh cathedral, the roman amphitheater, the city walls and gates. Well worth an intensive visit and you should also visit the new and modern district of the city

I have been to Italy twice a year for many years and it was my first time to Puglia. My friends from Milano and Genova had never been there either. They was as impressed as I was. Food is great, people are friendly and the nightlife is awesome. There is piazza after piazza one more beautiful than the next. I think this was probably the most beautiful city I have been all over Europe.

Lecce is incredibly charming with a centro storico filled with amazing Baroque buildings. The scale of the place is very navigable by foot and we took time to explore the many corners and side streets. There is also a wonderful array of restaurants featuring the regional cuisine of the area. There are tourists there, but the place lacks the oppressive tourist density of northern cities like Florence or Rome. The atmosphere is relaxed but elegant.

Many historic sites to see, but in a very compact area, so esay to manage. The local artistic specialty is papier mache like you have never seen before. Stunning. Oh, and the gelari is superb.
