Tour itinerary

This half-day excursion takes you through the beautiful streets of Lecce and, after a short introduction to the ancient origins of the city and some landmark events in its history, your guide will introduce you to Lecce's remarkable Baroque architectural heritage, concentrating on the special details that contribute to the theatrical effect of the local architecture, as well as the tradition behind the local crafts (papier-mâché, wrought iron, ceramics and inlaid olive wood). You will then begin your tour through the city, seeing all the main sights, including the Duomo, the main Piazza, the churches and much more.
