Great place to visit, lovely to enjoy its historic center by walking through the streets, plazas, cafes and churches. It seems to be somehow quiet, only few cars can go in it. But there is a lot of activity at night with live music and...More

We were advised to spend twice as much time in Lecce as we did in Matera, Bari, or Brindisi and we are glad we did. Getting lost in those other places is not fun while getting lost in Lecce was our daily goal. The charm...More

We decided to travel by train to visit Lecce for the day as we’d read that parking in the city was difficult. The railway station is some distance from the historic centre but as brisk walkers we soon reached the start of the old district....More

Striking impact from the honey coloured stone buildings, Baroque style, when we arrived. Finding a parking space was so difficult we ended up walking through suburban streets, narrow, many one way, charming, before we reached the historic centre. The Piazza del Duomo is a beautiful...More

Lecce offers much as a destination. It has an attractive historical center, many Baroque churches, a pleasant pedestrianized street scene, solid restaurants, regional cuisine, nearby beaches, and reasonable prices. But it's out of the way, unless you want beaches or want to avoid larger, more...More

A true Baroque city with a wonderful feel. We ate well, visited the Jewish Museum, had a walking tour with Fancesco, and felt right at home. A feast for the eyes!

Wherever you travel in Italy, there is usually a Centro Storico. The first time you happen upon Lecce's Centro Storico, you will be stunned by its beauty. The stark contrast of storied buildings and the tidy remains of a Roman ampitheatre dominate the city's main...More

You can spend easily a week in Puglia. It is not dissimilar from Sicily, although there is less arabic influence and more greek and norman. Lecce is probably the most charming of the "big" towns but it is far from the sea... More
