Lecce is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in Italy and we are sure that after this private experience you will agree on this. Often referred to as the "Florence of the South", it will surprise you with its elegance and immense historical heritage.
Your private local guide will take you on a relaxing walking tour of the historic center where you will discover an incredibly charming city with its unique Baroque style expressed in the squares, noble palaces and beautifully decorated churches
As you stroll through the city, you will notice that the buildings of the city are built of local limestone: in the light of the sunset the city takes on a unique golden atmosphere.
Your guide will tell you all about the joyfully decorated carvings that adorn most palaces and enrich your experience with some fun stories about their "goose breast shaped" wrought iron balconies - I bet you wouldn't be able to guess why these are usually decorated with geraniums!
To conclude with a flourish, do not miss to taste the delicious "Pasticciotto", a typical pastry filled with fresh custard and accompany it with a refreshing "Lecce coffee", as a perfect combination of espresso and freshly made almond milk.
