Marvel in front of the church of Santa Croce and Palazzo dei Celestini, main emblems of the Lecce Baroque.  Continue to Piazza Sant'Oronzo, dominated by the column coming from Old Appia Road (the connecting route between Rome and Lecce in ancient Rome), which now holds the statue of the Patron of Lecce.

Knowledgeable and informative guide

The guide continued with the tour even though I was the only tourist to show. I respect the dedication. The guide gave a great account of the history of the area & the buildings. She knew all sorts of interesting idiosyncrasies. Great tour. I felt I had a good grasp of Lecce by the time she was done.

Fantastic guide to a beautiful city.

Antonella was fantastic- friendly, interesting and super-knowledgeable and she made our tour a highlight of our trip. The tour went ahead even though there were only two of us. Lecce is a beautiful city with an amazing history and Antonella covered the history brilliantly and dealt with our questions clearly and confidently. We have had some brilliant such tours of many cities and this was as good as any of them. Thank you .
