Full description
Enjoy a guided tour of Lecce, also known as the “Rome of the South”, a stunning Baroque city with a long-standing affinity with Greek culture. The tour also visit the charming fishermen’s village of Gallipoli, just a short 30 minute drive from Lecce.

The tour begins with pickup from your accommodation in Lecce and heads off on a sightseeing adventure. The first stop of the day is to the impressive Baroque cathedral, followed by the former Convent of the Celestines, and then the Holy Cross Church built in 1646. Next, visit the Arch of Triumph, erected in 1548 to pay homage to Charles V. Other highlights include the churches of Saint Matthew, Saint John the Baptist, and Saint Mary of the Graces.

Continue the tour to the nearby village of Gallipoli, on the coast of southern Puglia. Enjoy a relaxing stroll through this peaceful village and admire yet more stunning Baroque architecture including the 17th century Saint Agate Cathedral. The tour also follows the walls and bastions surrounding the old town, built in the 15th century to fend off attacks, especially from pirates.
