What's Lecce Like?

Lecce is also known as the "Florence of the South" and this should give an idea of the architectural and artistic splendour in store for visitors to this wonderful destination. Lecce possesses a vast trove of Baroque buildings including the dazzling Cathedral with its iconic bell tower. The Church of the Holy cross includes a famous sculpted façade, while the Church of the Theatines is similarly beautiful. For a change of scene, you can also visit the ancient Roman amphitheatre, and there are Renaissance and Baroque wonders around every corner. The town also offers some excellent museums, not least the fascinating Museo Provinciale. There are more modern attractions as well, including football matches at US Lecce or the refreshing water park at Splash Gallipoli. The natural beauty of Apulia is also on Lecce's doorstep with sites like the Alimini Lakes and the coast around Otranto.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Lecce

Lecce is famous for the optimism and friendliness of its people, even though it has escaped the hordes of tourists that other great Italian cities have experienced. Expect a warm welcome. To make the most of your trip, a guided tour of the city's churches and other buildings is recommended, although with a map the city centre is easily navigated on foot. In August, the people of the region flock to Lecce for the raucous Festival of Sant'Oronzo - which is the best time to sample the regions street food and music. There are also many local food festivals, such as the Octopus Festival in Celenza Valfortore or the many wine festivals held in November. At any time of year, a trip to Lecce hotels organized with Hotels.com will be well worth the journey.
