Your Destination —
Some of the top sights include:
Piazza del Duomo
A beautiful square bursting with ornate buildings. Here you'll find the duomo, Cathedral of the Madonna Assunta, originally built in 1144 and its famous 70 metre bell tower.
Built in the second century AD. The amphitheatre is partially excavated but monuments have been built above most of it. You'll see the remains near Sant'Oronzo Square where there's a Roman column topped by a copper statue of Saint Oronzo, the city's patron saint.
Basilica of Santa Croce
Considered the emblem of the city with its richly decorated facade.
Castle of Charles V
Built in the 16th century as the royal residence. Next to it is the Opera House.
The city centre is quite compact which makes it easy for walking - the best way to sightsee! It is also full of fantastic restaurants offering traditional dishes. Lecce has attracted many foodies in recent years, eager to discover the flavourful secrets of 'la cucina povera' (the food of the poor).
Your hotel is just 10 minutes walking distance from the historic city centre of Lecce, and 15 minutes drive from the best beaches of the Salento peninsula. Why not hire a car and get out of the city for some sea air?
Gallipoli is 40 km from Lecce
It is a town divided into two parts: the old town situated on an island of limestone, which is connected to the mainland by a 17th century bridge. On the mainland you will find the village, and the most recent part of the city, home to new buildings like the Glass Palace.
Otranto is 40 km from Lecce
Considered one of most beautiful villages in Italy. It hosts an impressive cathedral, prestigious churches and the Castle of Otranto, featured in Horace Walpole's famous 18th century Gothic novel. The Daer Cave also has a particular importance, containing priceless archaeological heritage.
Santa Maria di Leuca is 68 km from Lecce
The city where "the land ends and the two seas meet", a tourist destination famous for the 19th century villas and its beautiful coastline, bordered by many fascinating caves, rich in Greek and Latin inscriptions and Neolithic findings.
