Lecce is such a joy of a city to casually stroll through and admire its beauty. There are also great restaurants and hotels here. The perfect base to explore other parts of Puglia.

Begin with a Roman amphitheater, a Tourist Information center in a medieval tower, and continue to coffee shops, restaurants, ice cream and gelato havens, all within a 1 minute walk.

In the historic center of Lecce are many Baroque churches. There is also the Roman amphitheater and the St. Oronzo column. There are also plenty of restaurants and shops. At night the populace comes out for their evening walk around this very attractive center.

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
