There is so much to see in Lecce , than even in a day or two you realize right away that there are too many treasures to discover in such a short time. We usually recommend at least 3 full days in Lecce or even 5 to explore the charming Salento through its villages and its Adriatic and Ionian Coasts. For a journey truly off the beaten path, we suggest experiencing Lecce with its baroque architecture and “dolce vita”.
Lecce is surrounded by beauty and every corner of the city is charming and well-tuned with the delicate, sophisticated spirit of place.
At YLTOUR we arrange tours of charming Lecce and Salento that involve both classic and unconventional routes, all of them imbued with a sense of romance and inspiration.
One of the thing you should not miss in Lecce is “Tito Schipa che canta e incanta Piazza Sant’Oronzo”: every day at noon they play a little Tito Schipa, a beloved local opera singer and best tenor of the twentieth century with his melodious voice that echoes every day in Sant’Oronzo Square as the clock strikes midday reminding people how beautiful and inspiring life can be (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YEDlC8Y2lSs&noredirect=1)
