The Essential

Nestling in the heel of Italy, Lecce, nicknamed the "Florence of the South", boasts a profusion of exuberant Baroque buildings. Once a garrison town, the city owes its fortune to the sunshine which floods the surrounding olive groves and the warm stone which captures the light so perfectly. And although the palazzi and churches in the historic centre attract crowds of visitors, the town is much more than an open-air museum thanks to its attractive outdoor terraces and lively streets which add to the town's charming atmosphere.
