The ruins of the Roman Amphitheatre, the church of Santa Croce, the Archbishop's palace of Lecce...
All the most striking monuments are reachable by a walk through the alleys, where by day the sun reflects the whiteness of Lecce stone and by night the moon peeks out between capitals and rose windows of palaces and churches.
In Lecce you can choose whether to spend your days at the beach, visiting the main tourist destinations of the Adriatic and Ionian areas: Alimini and Otranto lakes, or you prefer to relax on the large beaches and visit one of the most beautiful villages of Italy - Gallipoli, and on Punta della Suina you can have the aperitif on the beach waiting for the sunset.
For landscape lovers we reccommend a coast to coast from Adriatic to Ionian sea.
The whiteness of Lecce stone that reflects the sun's rays makes the atmosphere in the alleys of the historic center of Lecce full of mistery and enchantment.
The path that leads from Piazza Sant'Oronzo, the square dedicated to the patron saint of Lecce, to the Cathedral, will give you the opportunity to admire the authentic Lecce Baroque. It's characterised by Corintian capitals where the acanthus leaves intewine with the typical cherubs present in the architraves of the facades of churches or between the columns of anciant buildings. Let yourself be fascinated by monuments of Lecce...
