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

The food is wonderful, with plenty of vegetarian offering (the national dishes orecchiette con rape".
