What you'll do

After meeting, we will start our walking between the alleys of the old city centre headed to our first tasting of salami and wine. I will tell you the history related to the main highlights such as Basilica of Santa Croce or piazza Duomo and many places that we will find on the way. From one place to the other we will stop to some shops to delight your palate with the most famous samples of Salento street food such as the "rustico": a soft puff pastry disc filled with mozzarella, tomato and béchamel, or the "frisella": a twice-baked bread roll topped with fresh tomato and olive oil . The tour will take place at dinner time, as it is an ideal way to do some sightseeing while having a light meal like locals use to do.

Hi, my name is Antonella. I'm a tour guide and a foody person! I thought of put together these two elements to offer people who come to visit Lecce the opportunity to enjoy my city in the deep, not only through history, but also tasting samples of local food that it is of our culture and history itself! That why I created the Street food tour of Lecce, a mix of walking sightseeing and street food tasting

This was a beautiful evening tour around the city where I could learn more about the history and stories whilst also trying some wonderful Lecce cuisine. Antonella is a wonderful story teller and made me feel so welcome whilst we explored the streets of Lecce as the sun started setting. Come hungry as the food tasting session was so great with lots of different things to try. Thank you! Antonia

I really enjoyed such a personal and inspired experience. Antonella made sure I understood all the history of the different places we visited and took the time to explain it in English (I was the only English speaker in the group so Antonella had to speak both in Italian and in English) I really appreciated that she didn’t leave me out. The food was so tasty. I had to pace myself given there were so many yummy food stops in only a few hours. I loved every single tasting! And I enjoyed meeting the others in the group. A little daunting at first for me since I was on my own. But I was soon made to feel welcome! Top class experience and I thank Antonella for such an enjoyable trip around such a beautiful city - a trip I could not have done alone.

Great tour with Antonella, who has a lot of insight about Lecce. The tour was a perfect mix of history, architecture and food to discover. A great way to enjoy interesting Lecce and Puglia Cuisine.

Antonella knows a lot about Lecce, you’ll learn many curiosities about this beautiful town and you’ll be able to see secrets that the original architects left on the different monuments and churches. Very instructive and professional. This tour is definitely worth doing. Do note that this is more a city tour than a food tour. It was very nice to do!
