This was an informative tour and helpful for tourists visiting Lecce for the first time, looking to get a bearing of the city. Lorenzo was friendly and a good story teller. He also recommended some restaurants around the city which was delicious!

We had a great time with Lorenzo. He gave us a great overview of the city and its history while keeping things informal and relaxed. I loved learning about the architectural details and the meanings behind them. I'd recommend this tour to anyone who hasn't visited Lecce before and wants to get the lay of the land.

Lorenzo's tour is an excellent way to get an overview of the beautiful city of Lecce. It was an interesting and informative morning, including a coffee break.The tour actually over ran! Lorenzo gives a lot of interesting information in a short space of time and is happy to answer questions.It was such a fun morning, I would thoroughly recommend it to any visitor.

Lorenzo ist ein wahnsinnig guter Erzaehler. Er hat er geschafft die Historie der Stadt sowie die Erzaehlungen ueber die Bauwerke in spannende Geschichten zu verpacken und dabei auch auf ein paar Details verwiesen, welchen unter Umstaenden nicht auf den ersten Blick erkennbar sind. Eine Teilnahme an der Tour lohnt sich in jedem Fall!!!!

Amazing tour through the city, absolutely loved it. A real must if you visit this beautiful city! Lorenzo is a great storyteller and gave many great insights, not only about the history of the buildings and places, but also about the life here in the area. He is very friendly, I can recommend this tour to everyone!

Wow! What a tour we had with Lorenzo! It was just fantastic. We now feel we really understand the baroque style of Lecce and it’s history. Lorenzo is a fantastic storyteller and really enthusiastic. We highly recommend this tour to those interested in history. The nice touch of the caffe Leccese was very nice! We are now obsessed with it! Grazie Lorenzo!
