    Fabulous introduction to the history and life in Lecce.

    Fabio was wonderful with his thorough archeological, historic and gastronomic knowledge of Lecce and Puglia in general. His style was engaging and he made us feel right at home with knowledge that we would not have found without him. His advice about restaurants was excellent and his quote “glorious food, it’s not just nutrition” was just right. He also gave us great advice on what else to see in the area.

    Fabio L., guida regionale ufficiale, rigorosamente locale, è stato molto professionale e ci ha reso partecipi di infinite particolarità della sua amata città. In 2 ore ci siamo immersi in storia, architettura, cultura, usi, tradizioni, artigianalità e curiosità di Lecce. Molto apprezzati i consigli per assaggiare le tipicità locali. Un'autentica esperienza a 5 sensi, coinvolgente ed appagante.
