Where to stay in Lecce

To enjoy Lecce's medieval architecture, consider staying at a B&B in the town center. Elegant on the outside and comfortable on the inside, B&Bs in this area offer airy rooms and modern conveniences suitable for every budget. If you wish to avoid the crowds of the city's central areas, explore the lodgings offered by private guesthouses on the edge of town.

  • The curch is very nice and deserves a visit, but the masterpiece is the location. In the heart of the historical centre of Lecce the "Duomo" is the most important building of the Duomo Square...a mast...  more »
  • Apparently built around 1660 it is an impressive old church with a large square free of restaurants.Inside the church is fairly sombre but interesting.  more »
  • There are two entrances to this Duomo on each side of the building...which is unique. The inside has stain glass windows that are very nice and colorful. Worth strolling in.  more »

  • I was a guest at this bed and breakfast recently. I was visiting Lecce for work and I got to enjoy the great hospitality of this hotel, which define Bed & Breakfast seems a little simplistic. Located in a historic building, with high vaulted ceilings and Baroque stucco here and there, creating a lovely atmosphere, the Duomo offers spaces and environments that would be unthinkable in cities like Rome or Milan. Very kind then the managers, available and committed to making your stay as pleasant as possible. In my unfortunately brief stay in the capital of Salento I slept in a suite with a small living room/Hall, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom. Too bad spending just one night!
