Overview

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”.
  • Discover the cultural and culinary highlights of Lecce in one tour
  • Take in the historic center’s famous baroque architecture with a guide
  • Sample the city’s traditional street food, both savory and sweet
  • Time your tour for lunch or dinner so your tastings serve as a light meal

    See Lecce through the eyes of a local

    Our guide brought Lecce to life! The big pieces of history, along with the smaller details that one would miss - even with the best guide book. I found I looked at Lecce with a more educated and thoughtful eye after our tour. So very interesting and a human connection.

    Great tour to get acclimated to the city! Antonella was very passionate and knowledgeable about the city. She gave historical facts and stories about each place we stopped! The food stops were also a wonderful way to explore the food scene of Lecce. Grazie Antonella, this tour is highly recommended!

    We had a terrific visit in Lecce with Antonella. Lecce is a fascinating city and she brought its history to life. Along the way we are a variety of food, it was more than enough for a meal. I was too busy eating the food to photograph it, but included a few shots from our walk. You will appreciate so much more about the history of Puglia but experiencing this tour.

    Christmas time in Lecce with Antonela

    , Dec 2021
    We stayed in Lecce for 3 days late December 2021 and booked a walking food tour with Antonela; the tour was exceptional and the Guide Antonela was an amiable lady with great knowledge of city’s history. We walked the beautifully decorated city streets and enjoyed the festive atmosphere and great local food. It was a winning combination of history and culinary experience and I recommend the tour to anyone staying in Lecce for the first time and eager to learn about culture and food.

    Our first food and walking tour, what a great idea! Angela(American) did a great job of bringing the city alive from its very long and interesting history. Taking a break every 40-45 minutes was appreciated. Great time to relax and ask questions.

    The tour gave us a fantastic understanding of the history of Lecce, while also showing us some of the wonderfully authentic culinary delights that the city has to offer. Antonella was very personable and her English was excellent. Her knowledge of the history of Lecce and Puglia was a joy.

    One of my best nights in Italy

    , Oct 2021
    My night exploring Lecce with Antonella was probably one of my favorite nights in Italy. There ended up being no other participants, so it was just 1:1! Antonella is extremely knowledgeable about the history of the city, its architecture, traditions, and of course, its food. If you're looking for a tour where you not only get to sample some traditional food but also learn A TON about Lecce and Apulia more generally, this is absolutely the tour for you.

    The Street Food tour is the perfect way to discover more about the cultural history of Lecce. If you take the night tour, don't worry about dinner for the night, you'll be full afterwards.

    Efficient city tour
    Lidia_B
    , Sep 2021
    The city tour is very efficient, as Antonella, the guide, was very knowledgeable and explained a lot of details otherwise missed. The 5 food tastings are evenly spaced during the tour and consist of local breads, pastries and gelato. For us it was too much dough, but we got the local taste. Tour started in a warm pleasant weather, but ended in a fresh night temperature. Have a jacket handy! Overall efficient.

    Street Food Tour of Lecce & City Sightseeing with Antonella

    Antonella is extremely knowledgeable. This was so much more than just a basic food tour, this was a history tour, architectural tour and food tour all rolled into one. We got to learn so much and got to experience so many little details that we surely would have missed if it weren’t for Antonella’s expertise. On the food side of things, we got to experience, among others, a variety of tarally, friselle, rustico and gelato and learn the history and origin of these dishes; as well as stopping at local food shops to which we would return to buy ingredients to take home with us. We highly recommend this tour, especially on the first day in Lecce, as it will set the tone for the rest of your stay in the city.

    Taste of Lecce

    Antonella was such a great guide! We were so lucky to just be my wife and I on this tour, so Antonella made us feel very special. Antonella gave a very informitive description of the history and architecture. We took the tour at 18:00. We loved the tastings and were actually so full at the end we could not fit in a dinner. Antonella, who grew up in Lecce, shared her experience and thoughts around the city and Puglia and was very interested in our questions. We highly recommend the tour. David & Agneta from Sweden

    We had so much fun during our streetfood tour with energetic & positive Antonella. She taught us a lot of new things about Lecce. And visited some places we did not find ourselves before. The owners of these shops & bars were also helpful and friendly. Antonella really took time to answer our questions. Next tour when we have guests/friends over we hope to meet you again. Bye! Take care.
