Thanks to Audrey and Davide for a nice and interesting tour of the historic city of Lecce. They told us several humorous anecdotes and explained several super interesting facts and details about the architecture and the history of the buildings of the city. As a bonus, a leccese and pasticciotto coffee, a real delight! ❤️
