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.

    The tour was wonderful! Antonella, our guide, was so knowledgeable and the information she shared about the Lecce was so interesting. The street food we had was so tasty and allow us to experienced the flavors of Lecce street cuisine. We highly recommend this tour and Antonella as a guide as it is a great opportunity to learn so much about the history, architecture, cuisine and beautiful culture of Lecce!

    Booking was easy but there seemed to be a backend issue, so the tour company were not informed, so our tour ended up kicking off about an hour and a half late. Once on the tour though we had a great time. Nice balance of food and cultural exploration. Probably more food stops than we’d planned for, so don’t go straight after a meal. The food we had was delicious and the guide knew all the best stops, as well as giving us a good insight into Lecce’s cultural history. Well worth it!

    Es war eine sehr schöne Tour zu Fuß durch die Altstadt von Lecce. Wir haben historisches und aktuelles vom Guide über die Stadt und das Leben dort erfahren. Es gab 5 Verkostungen in verschiedenen Läden mit regionalen Köstlichkeiten. Ein Abendessen brauchten wir dann nicht mehr. Wir können die Tour auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen.
