Overview
In addition to its ornate baroque palaces and churches, Lecce is home to a unique culinary culture. With this tour, explore both the city’s architecture and its cuisine while strolling through the old town with your guide. Take in the Duomo, Basilica of Santa Croce, and other highlights and sample local delicacies like the savory “rustico” and “frisella” baked treats, followed by a “pasticciotto” filled with sweet custard for dessert.

Not one to take guided tours, I am really glad that my friends and I took this tour with Antonella. Knowledgeable, well organised, and a font of information. It was lovely walk with history, local food, and to have the tour at night was a treat with Lecce all lit up.
