Lecce and the surrounding area
Lecce is an historical city in the heart of Salento and one of the provinces of Apulia region, in the South of Italy. Very often, it is also called ‘Florence of Southern Italy’, because of the magnificent Baroque art styled monuments and noble palaces, stunning architecture, which you can find also everywhere in Salento area. A nice stroll in the city would bring you to visit the amphitheater in Saint’Oronzo Square, where you can stop also for having a creamy ice-cream, then heading for a peek at the beautiful Baroque Santa Croce Church, for example, and at the front of Celestini Palace, at the Dome, along the main shopping street, at the Castle Charles V. The city has also a long traditional bond with the Greek culture, which dates back to its old origins. Indeed, there are suggestive tiny villages in the nearby that are identified as Grecìa Salentina, where natives still speak griko, an old language, which reminds of the old Greek. Lecce is also an important centre for the production of local, golden extra virgin olive oils and ruby wines, such as Primitivo and Negroamaro, as well as for its fine ceramics. The crystal clear sea of both the rocky Adriatic and the sandy Ionian coast is not so far: a pleasant driving will bring you in stunning places, where you will enjoy great time in the sun and having a swim or perhaps taking fabulous pictures for your album of memories: Torre dell’Orso, Otranto, Castro, Santa Maria di Leuca, Gallipoli, Porto Cesareo…and of course there is a lot of more heading in the inland for visiting very fine cultural centers.
