  • Overview

    A masterpiece found within Puglia is the city of Lecce, also known as ‘Florence of the South’ or ‘Florence of Baroque’. The city has a long and vibrant history, with relics dating back to the times of the Romans, with the ruins of a Roman amphitheatre present within the city.

    However, it was not until the 17th Century that the town made its name. A period of prosperity allowed for the area to be greatly developed with many new palaces and churches being built. These can be found today in the historic centre of Lecce, which offers an ideal location for visitors to explore the stunning architecture of many of the buildings and discovering some of the many architectural monuments and Baroque churches.

    For those who love Italian Gelato, the city is home to The Gelateria Pasticceria Natale. They offer a varied selection of ice-cream and cakes, with something to suit everyone’s taste buds.
