Lecce is best known for its sumptuous baroque architecture, but the city has an equally rich cuisine worth exploring. Discover both its cultural treasures and gastronomic delights with this tour that combines a guided walk past the Basilica of Santa Croce, the cathedral, and other highlights of the historic center with stops to sample traditional specialties like savory “rustico” and “frisella” pastries, and the sweet custard-filled “pasticciotto”.

Today its undergrounds are part of a historical itinerary accessible by the visitor. During the visit we observe the tanks used for ritual ablutions (mikwa’ot), the door jamb space in which a mezuzah was housed and the remains of the ecclesiastical building whose perimeter is substantially the same as the pre-existing synagogue. Available languages: Italian, English, French, Spanish.

Lecce. Journey to discover a charming baroque

Lecce. Journey to discover a charming baroque

star-5

The historic center of Lecce is one of the most interesting in Puglia. The particularity of its Baroque architecture derives from the ability of local artists and architects who, between the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries, have done something unique thanks to the quality of the tender local stone. Our tour will be a journey through time, from the splendor of the Roman Empire to contemporary Lecce. An elegant and refined city where churches and ancient buildings alternate artisan workshops (especially papier-mache), shops and places where you can taste typical products.

Traditional Home Cooking Experience in Lecce
"Paola and Tiziano were great hosts and we would highly recommend this. The evening felt really tailored, was only us and not merged with other people and we learnt a lot about the region, local food and seasonal produce. As a confident cook with friends less so experienced, it was a good starter for pasta making and Paola had prepared the most part of the meal so it's more about learning rather than cooking from scratch the entire meal. Was a lovely starter, pasta course, secondi and pudding, paired with local wine. If there are more than 4 of you, you might need to pay a small subsidy for transfers but Tiziano will arrange. All in all we left saying it was one of the best and most memorable evenings in Puglia."..."
