The Tour was a fantastic experience, our guide was Luigi, who was very knowledgeable and kind and took us through the streets of Lecce, making us discover well-known and less well-known places, telling us about the history and art with a lightness for which time he's turned. Highly recommended

The guide, Luigi Leante made the tour spectacular. Extremely knowledgeable and in love with the history of his city, he described the architecture of the cathedral and the Basilica of Santa Croce to us and told us about the Jewish history of Lecce. It was super interesting and never boring
