Espressino Travel was founded on a passion for Puglia. After countless vacations, and an unforgettable summer in Lecce, we became part of an amazing community of friends, teachers, chefs and hosts. Inspired by our experiences, we realized that the region, its people and its culture were too good not to share with the world. Join us on our Puglia tour and we believe you'll fall in love just like we did!
Guidebooks call Lecce the Florence of the South. The reality is even better. A city of baroque treasures and culinary delights, Lecce has somehow remained unspoilt by tourism. Lecce may be the jewel in Puglia's crown, but the region is bursting with undiscovered gems full of amazing food and wine. But above all, it is the warmth and kindness of the locals that makes the region the perfect place for our Puglia tours.
