PUGLIA: LECCE--How many nights?

Jump to last reply

On a week-long trip to Puglia, how many nights should I devote to Lecce? I will be arriving from the Otranto area, so will not use Lecce as a base to day trip. I am now planning, in addition to 2 nights near Otranto, 3 nights near Fasano. We will rent a car.

So the question is: Should I keep two nights in Lecce so that the plan looks like this:

Arrival in Brindisi. 2 nights outside Otranto
2 nights Lecce (enough to keep us busy in the city for almost two full days?)
3 nights near Fasano (day trips from here)


OR, should I cut Lecce to one night and add another night in, for example, Martina Franca, or Cisternino? Or Monopoli? Or another nearby place? Or add a night in the Fasano masseria? (I think I will leave Matera for a future trip although it is tempting to try to work it in)

Which of the towns in that area did you find most interesting--?

We will fly in and out of Brindisi and the trip is in late September. Interested less in specific "sights" than in general exploration. Food, of course, is a primary interest.
