Fodor's Expert Review Patria Palace

Piazzetta Riccardi 13, Lecce, Apulia, 73100, Italy

Lecce's grandest hotel—impeccable from top to bottom, with vaulted ceilings, frescoes, and antique furnishings—also happens to have a stellar location in front of the monumental Santa Croce Basilica, the crown jewel of Lecce Baroque. In summer, you can dine on the patio overlooking the basilica or in the beautiful roof garden.
