Guided tour Lecce

Guided tour for your group

Visiting Lecce is like diving into a Baroque oasis built in the middle of Puglia

 

TOUR DESCRIPTION

Elegant and refined, Lecce is one of the most appreciated cities of art in Southern Italy. Here the Baroque style predominates and takes on a local connotation, the “Leccese Baroque”. This style is characterised by the fine stonework in Lecce stone and not by lavish gold decorations.

The facades of churches and historic buildings seem modeled by skillful hands… strolling through the old town you will admire showcases of craft shops: from papier-mache to the local pastry-making.
