Known as the Florence of the south of Italy and having been to both, Lecce was my favourite. A great many historic sites and a maze of narrow atmospheric streets made for a great stay. Great base to explore the rest of Puglia.

I can't say enough about Lecce. The Baroque architecture is fabulous. Also, the town has an active population and in the evening, the streets are filled with people. We've now been to Lecce twice and have been very impressed.
