Full description
Taste the best traditional snacks Lecce has to offer while exploring the quaint city center and its impressive monuments. Meet your guide at Porta San Biagio, one of the main old gates of the city. Begin your food tasting experience with the frisella, which is roll-bread, twice baked and topped with fresh tomato and local olive oil.  

Then, you’ll start to move down the cozy alleys of the city center to discover its hidden treasures, with the help of your expert guide who will be full of anecdotes and historical details.  

Your next tasting will be salami, tarallini (similar to a pretzel), and wine in one of the oldest family vendors in the city. Admire Piazza Duomo, surrounded by a closed square and elegant monuments before heading to Porta Napoli to learn about the obelisk that stands in the center of its square.  

After savory tastings, it’s time for dessert — taste Lecce’s most famous cake, the pasticciotto, a small pastry stuffed with custard that locals love to eat for breakfast. Finally, you’ll arrive at the main square, Piazza Sant’Oronozo, where you can admire a fabulous Roman amphitheater. Finish with the grand finale, one of the best gelato in town.
