Lecce walking tour
Explore Apulia’s capital of Baroque with a guided walking tour. The city was extensively rebuilt in Baroque style between 1660 and 1720. During the tour, you’ll admire the Duomo, the Bell Tower, the Archbishop’s palace, the exterior of Santa Croce Church and, the Roman Amphitheatre.  Stop at a pastry shop to buy the famed Leccese cotognato (quince paste).
The tour can also include a visit to two local master artisans: one an expert in making the traditional cartapesta (papier mache)figurines, the other a stone sculptor – both famous for their top-quality work.

Trulli & Baroque
In the morning visit the villages of Locorotondo and Alberobello, famous for the trulli, circular constructions with white walls and conic, grey, stone roofs. The trulli are scattered in the countryside of Locorotondo with its historical center located on the hills. Take a stroll in Alberobello, a Unesco- protected area that’s entirely covered by trulli. In the afternoon, visit Martina Franca, an elegant town with small, Spanish – styled palaces whose balconies are decorated with blooming flowers.
