Overall Guide : The city is full of monuments and has a cultural heritage. The place is best suited for the people who just want to relax and visit old heritage monuments and churches in the city. Being a very traditional place there... more are beautiful church, museums and Heritage places. To start your tour with you should first go to Basilica di Santa Croce. The church is sculpted beautifully and looks like a craving of gold. At night the church is a real place to watch. The other place to visit is the Duomo di Lecce. The place is filled with old monuments, shops. As the day goes the area looks more beautiful in the evening.

Overall Guide : We drove to Lecce from Ostuni one Sunday in July. Access was easy as was parking (also free on Sundays). Although we are not 'into' church buildings and architecture, the Centro Storico (Old Town) could not fail to impress you... more with the exceptional beauty of its surroundings. There is the usual 'tourist tat' but not too invasive.
Not to be missed Duomo Square , Celestini Palace
