With nearly 100,000 inhabitants, Lecce is the capital of its province and one of the biggest cities in the region. The Baroque architecture of the city’s historic center has seen it called the Florence of the South, and its university and reputation as a haven for artists keep this ancient city lively and vibrant to this day.
Lecce began as a stronghold of the Messapian tribe that has been linked to ancient Crete. The city had strong links with Greece back when Rome was just a provincial town. However, Lecce came under the control of the Romans in the third century BC. In the second century A.D., the town was moved two miles north from its previous location to connect to a nearby port.
Lecce's location on the Adriatic Sea made it strategically important, and following the fall of the Roman Empire, it passed through the hands of many different rulers. Goths, Saracens, Lombards, and Hungarians all occupied Lecce at one point or another. Eventually, the city fell into the hands of the Holy Roman Emperor, and it was during this period in the 16th century that the town center was rebuilt into the Baroque masterpiece it remains today.
Lecce is a long way from the typical Italian tourist destinations of Rome, Florence, and Venice. But its long history and coastal location make it a fascinating place to visit, and more and more tourists are discovering this southern Italian jewel for themselves.
Visitors to Lecce can't help but be impressed by the well-preserved Baroque town center with its elaborate churches and monuments. However, there's more to the city than Renaissance architecture. Look a little closer, and you'll find plenty to keep you busy.
See a Baroque masterpiece at the Basilica di Santa Croce. This stunning church, like many of the cities old buildings, is made from famous Lecce stone, and its elaborate decorations and statues make it an unforgettable sight.
Take in the atmosphere at the Piazza Sant'Oronzo. Surrounded by impressive buildings, the central square is also home to the remains of the city's Roman amphitheater. Grab an outside table at one of the many cafés and restaurants and watch the world go by.
Explore Lecce's military history at Lecce Castle. Built by Emperor Charles V in the 16th century, this well-preserved fortification was intended to protect the city from attacks from both sea and land. The museum inside the formidable walls explains the history of the castle and the town.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!
This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!
Can’t believe I haven’t used this service until now. So easy & convenient. I 100% recommend.
