    A 'Must Do' Tour We went on the 2 hour walking tour of Lecce which was thoroughly enjoyable and informative. We took the 5pm tour to avoid the worst of the heat. Max was our tour guide, his fluent English and deep knowledge of Lecce made the tour very educational and interesting. We learnt a lot about the history of Lecce in that 2 hours. There was a reasonable amount of walking but with plenty of stops on the way it was very doable even for my husband who has mobility issues. Thoroughly recommend.
