Let's visit the Florence of the South!


Because of the rich Baroque architectural monuments found in the city, Lecce is commonly nicknamed "The Florence of the South". Lecce has a long traditional affinity with Greek culture going back to its foundation; the Messapii who founded the city are said to have been Cretans in Greek records. To this day, in the Grecìa Salentina, a group of towns not far from Lecce, the griko language is still spoken.

I can create a customized tour for you in case you have special requests.

A Recent Review of this tour

Giorgio was utterly fantastic - we can't recommend him highly enough! Fantastic communication on setting up the tour, and then a wealth of historical and local information during it. As well as taking us to the obvious (and beautiful) architectural sites, Giorgio took us to places we'd never have gone to by ourselves, including some local houses. And for the local speciality cafe Leccese. We asked his advice on a place to go for lunch and he recommended a wonderful local place we loved. We love Giorgio!
