South Lecce

DEPARTURE POINT: Lecce old town

We start out from the old town of Lecce to reach the village of Acaya, the medieval fortified town, where we’ll admire the impressive castle, the boundary walls and the urban plan of the old town that has been left unchanged over time.

Then we head to the Cesine Natural Reserve, a wetland that is home to many species of plants and aquatic birds and today is a WWF protected area.

Break on the beach for a refreshing bathe if the weather allows.

On the way back through Strudà we will visit an olive grove where some trees are a thousand years old.

On our return we will stop for a tasting of products typical of Lecce.
