Known as the 'Florence of the South', Lecce is situated in the region of Puglia in Southern Italy. This magnificent city offers a feast for the eyes with its superb Baroque architecture and well-preserved historic monuments. Featured in the UNESCO World Heritage tentative list, Lecce is a cultural hub nestled between two seas, offering a unique combination of history, art, and sea views.
Exploring Lecce by car is highly recommended, as it allows unrestricted access to several must-visit sites. Start with Santa Croce Church, an architectural masterpiece of the Baroque period with intricate decorations on its façade. Another Lecce's gem reached easily by car is the Roman Amphitheatre. Less than 40km distance by car, beautiful sandy beaches of Gallipoli offer a pleasant break from city sightseeing.
Excursions from Lecce to other parts of Puglia are also easily attainable by car. Approximately an hour's drive to the south will present you with the unique 'trulli' houses of Alberobello, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. To the north, within a two-hour drive, lies another UNESCO site - the charming old town of Matera, known for its ancient cave-dwelling districts.
