Lecce (Puglia)

Lecce is a historic city in southern Italy, the capital of the province of Lecce, as well as one of the most important cities of Apulia. It is the main city of the Salentine Peninsula, a sub-peninsula at the heel of the Italian Peninsula and is over 2,000 years old. Because of the rich Baroque architectural monuments found in the city, Lecce is commonly nicknamed "The Florence of the South". The city also has a long traditional affinity with Greek culture going back to its foundation.

What others are saying about Puglia

I am looking at purchasing an apartment in Bari that needs to be totally renovated. I would like to get a quote for the complete job from a geometra before I make the purchase. Is this a service that they normally provide?

Thanks
