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

A Recent Review of this tour

In all our travels and our use of local tour guides, Giorgio was probably the best tour guide we have ever had. I love that rather than inundate us with an over abundance of history and dates, he talked about the culture and the people of Puglia.
