Itinerary

First Look at Lecce!
Nighttime walking tour of Lecce

On your first night we waste no time, we're heading out for a first look at the historical centre of Lecce! We've planned a walking tour through the city so you can sample local foods and start connecting. Lecce is a city of rose windows, stone flourishes, small piazzas, and unexpected alleyways. Not many people speak English here so tonight's as great a night as any to start practicing your Italian!
