Study in Lecce: The Baroque Heart of Italy's Heel
Nestled in the southern region of Apulia, Lecce is a historical gem waiting to be discovered. Known as the "Florence of the South" due to its stunning Baroque architecture, this charming town offers visitors a rich tapestry of history, culture, and culinary delights. A visit to Lecce is not only a visual feast but also an immersive experience to learn the Italian language in an authentic setting.
Lecce's history dates back to the 3rd century BC when it was founded by the Messapians, an ancient Italic tribe. The town later flourished under the Roman Empire, which left a lasting imprint on its architecture and urban planning. It reached its artistic peak during the 17th century, when the Baroque style became the town's hallmark.
The town's narrow cobblestone streets, ornate churches, and warm-hued limestone buildings create a charming and intimate atmosphere. Lecce is also a culinary paradise, boasting a rich culinary tradition and world-renowned wines. The slower pace of life and friendly locals make it an ideal destination to learn Italian, as you'll have ample opportunities to practice your language skills while exploring the town's enchanting history and culture.
