Visit the "Florence of the Baroque," the lovely city of Lecce; its unique buildings—many with wild sculptures—are filled with workshops crafting the town’s renowned painted papier-mâché saints destined for church altars around the world. Lecce is also the de facto capital of Apulia's southernmost Salento Peninsula, famed for its earthy, powerful Salice Salentino and Primitivo wines.
