Lecce: a city where you can admire splendid baroque buildings like The Cathedral, The Seminary and the Vescovile Palace, in one of the most beautiful ‘piazzas’ in Italy. Choose one of the hotels of the Vestas Hotels & Resorts between Risorgimento Resort, Hotel President, Eos Hotel respectively a 5, 4 and 3 stars accommodation.
Cultural holidays in Salento allow you to find interesting stopovers in the cities and the less well-known towns, even discovering, whist exploring the surrounding areas unexpected landscapes. The local crafts characterized by the use of papier-mâché, terracotta and ceramic but also wrought iron, glass and of antique and complex art of embroidery on fabrics are some of the attractions most loved even by international tourists.
Even food and wine is an integral part of a cultural Salento holiday, with a culinary tradition rich in typical dishes, a large part of which are based upon fish and vegetables, to savour and appreciate at the various festivals held in the regions towns both large and small. In addition shows and cultural events are organised in the various towns, especially during summer.
