Accommodation in Lecce

Lecce is a historic city of 95,000 inhabitants in southern Italy, the capital of the province of Lecce (the second province in the region by population), 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; the Messapii who founded the city are said to have been Cretans in Greek records. To this day, in the Grecìa Salentina, a group of towns not far from Lecce, the griko language is still spoken. Lecce is an official city candidate to become the European Capital of Culture in 2019. In a city like Lecce, the choices of accommodation are varied (from B & B to hotels to luxury hotels) and, as such, must meet the most diverse needs.
