It is surely extremely fascinating to discover a new territory autonomously, but it is even more so being able to do so with who knows the area well, anecdotes and the cabalas, the stories associated with the streets and the quaters.
For this reason, we invite you to book your trip with local people directly here, at the Hotel Delle Palme, at your disposal for the most beautiful holiday in Lecce and in the Salento area, pearls of the Apulia!
The first thing to do, is to immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the historical city centre, passing through the narrow streets, by admiring the white of the Lecce stone, by observing the Baroque-style of the facades of the many churches and by stopping to taste a “pasticciotto” in one of the local artisanal shops!
Thanks to the favourable location of Lecce and the wealth of the surrounding areas, there are various opportunities: Gallipoli and the Ionic Coast, Otranto, a general tour of the Salento area, the marine grottos, the Adriatic Coast, oil mills, archaeology and much, much more. According to your favourite theme, you will find a trip that is perfect for you!
These are specific itineraries to discover either the wine o the oil supply chain, by stopping at oil mills, wine cellars or large farms to learn about the wealth of resources this sun-kissed area has to offer!
There is also the possibility to book specific boat or kayak trips, to enjoy the sea in total freedom!
Along the road of the ancient wayfarers, passing by the Abbey of Santa Maria in Cerrate then along the Adriatic Coast until you reach Frigole, stopping at an important, typical farm.
A flat land tour inside the WWD de Le Cesine Nature Park, with a visit to Acaya Castle and a return trip among olive groves and dry-stone walls.
A pleasurable itinerary that takes you to visit the Norman Cathedral, with the largest floor mosaic in the south of Italy.
From the historical town centre of Ostuni towards the Coastal Dune Nature Park, the protected area where age-old olive groves alternate with fields of wheat and green grasslands.
From Alberobello up to the historic town centre of Martina Franca. Then also a tour of the Murgia with its trullis and grottos!
