An exclusive tour to explore Lecce and its age-old papier mâché craft.
Lecce is a veritable treasure trove to explore. As you stroll the streets, you can admire its cultural highlights, from the Baroque churches and palazzi to the ancient Roman ruins sprinkled through every corner. The little craft workshops in the historic centre are the heartbeat of the city’s artistic heritage. Your tour will take you to a local papier mâché artisan’s workshop for you to learn about the old tradition of transforming humble paper into extraordinary works of art. You’ll move on to the contemporary papier mâché studio of an international master artist, followed by one of Lecce’s loveliest secret gardens, nestling inside an aristocratic family’s historic mansion.
Finally, a Pugliese aperitivo will round off this fabulous day in fitting style.
