Food Tour of Lecce
After meeting up in the Piazza Duomo square, we will head to the city's bustling market. In this intoxicating culinary space, you will see, smell, and taste the typical fruits and vegetables of Lecce.
After leaving the market, we will stroll along Libertini Street and make a stop to try a delicious Puccia, a traditional sandwich of the Salento region.
Then we head down Palmieri, the only street with Rococo style architecture in the city, and into the charming Sant Oronzo square. Here, we will try Lecce's most famous snack: the Rustico. This is a dough baked puff pastry, filled with mozzarella, bechamel and tomato and offers the most authentic taste of the city.
Hopefully, you will still be hungry after that delicious treat, because we will then enjoy one of the star dishes of Italian cuisine. We'll head to a typical local tavern to feast on the pezzetti di cavallo: a meat stew with tomato sauce. And if you really want to feel like an authentic local, why not accompany it with a glass of regional red wine.
Then it's time for the sweetest moment as we enjoy a delicious dessert in a local café. You will be served an Italian espresso, and try pasticciottos pastries and quince cheesecakes, two of the city's most popular sweets.
When making the booking, you can choose to accompany the tour with a tasting of cheese and ham.
