Lecce, called "la Signora del Barocco" (the baroque lady) for its architectural structure, is the perfect combination of nature and culture. It is located in the heart of the peninsula of Salento, close to the most beautiful beaches of southern Italy. Lecce's fame is constantly increasing thanks to its hospitality and its many accommodation facilities but also to its extraordinary artistic and cultural patrimony. Walking through its streets, the tourists will discover little and majestic architectural wonders (churches, palaces and citizens' little houses): Palazzo Carafa, town hall of Lecce; the palaces of Piazza Falconieri and the Provincial Museum, full of archeological findings. In the modern centre of Lecce it is possible to take pleasant walks during the late afternoon or evening among the numerous artistic beauties, elegant shops and excellent restaurants that serve typical and genuine local dishes with exquisite local wines.

The coastal area of this province is covered in a flourishing mediterranean scrub and pinewoods. It is high and rocky with cliffs that overlook the Adriatic sea (from Otranto to Santa Maria di Leuca) and the Ionian sea (from Gallipoli and the Nardò marines). The most renowned watersides (from the adriatic sea to the ionian sea) are: San Cataldo, San Foca, Torre dell'Orso, Otranto, Santa Cesarea Terme, Castro, Tricase, Santa Maria di Leuca, Marina di San Gregorio, Torre Valdo, Marina di Pescoluse, Lido Marini, Torre San Giovanni, Gallipoli, Santa Maria al Bagno, Santa Caterina, Porto Cesareo e Torre Lapillo. Salento's motto is "lu sule, lu mare e lu jentu": the sun, the sea and the wind, the three protagonists of this locality.
