The expert local guides of our community will lead you to discover Lecce, the pearl of Puglia that boasts more than 20 churches and stone streets that wind between golden buildings, whose magnificent decorations are admired all over the world and are worth to this city the fame of “cradle of the Baroque”. Immerse yourself in its romantic atmosphere suspended in time to discover history and traditions, and do not miss the characteristic workshops where skilled master craftsmen master ancient techniques of processing papier-mâché, Lecce stone, local musical instruments. All seasoned with delicious typical sweets and an exceptional soundtrack, the typical Salento pizzica, with a frenetic dance full of symbolism.
About the tour
The visit of Lecce by foot to discover the hidden gems of the city is recommended for those who love calm and prefer to appreciate all the details invisible to a quick eye. All PlacenPeople organizers who will accompany you on cultural tours are licensed professional tour guides.
You will meet with the guide at the agreed point and time, and the tour will start. If you (or your group) are the only participants, you can propose the guide a particular point and time.
If you want to enrich your trip with the discovery of another unique local pearl, we recommend you to explore one of our tours to 2 locations, combining for instance, when visiting Lecce, the romanticism of Otranto, a maritime town whose beauty will surprise you, giving glimpses of great poetry. On these tours, many organizers make their car available for a free ride.
Costs (and inclusions)
The participation fee for a cultural (walking) tour is € 30 per person and includes the activity of the tour guide, while it doesn’t include meals or anything else.
Some community organizers may indicate slightly different prices depending on the services offered (eg. the “Jewish Lecce” tour, or the “Underground Lecce” tour). It is possible to inquire about availability and prices by contacting our PleacenPeople team directly via the Whatsapp button at the bottom of the page.
Duration and Period
The guided tours have a duration of about 2 hours and almost all the organizers leave freedom of choice on the departure time. Available all year round.
Tours generally start with groups of 2 to 25 participants, but many organizers are flexible and also start with one person, or with groups larger than 25. On tours where you visit only one city, you meet directly on site: the organizer will indicate the meeting point immediately after booking, often agreeing this point with the guest.
Alternatively, if you choose a two-stage day tour our organizers are available to offer a ride by car (in the case of a few people – free of charge) or to organize transport by bus or minibus (in case of groups).
