Located in the sunny South, Lecce is fantastic to visit for a number of reasons: the delicious Italian cuisine, the gorgeous weather and ancient historical moments, not to mention the stunning beaches dotted along the coast.
The centre is magnificent
Life revolves around the ancient Roman amphitheatre in the centre. Dating back nearly two millennia, it testifies to the Roman’s infamous engineering that was designed to stand the test of time.
Explore the paved streets and alleys
The winding streets are lovely to explore and at night everywhere is beautifully illuminated and bathed in golden light.
While a number of impressive buildings dot the city, the Church of Santa Croce is particularly delightful. The square in front of it is also well worth visiting.
