Lecce's southern location and proximity to the sea moderates temperatures throughout the year, although it can get quite hot in July and August. Still, summer is when the patron saint of Lecce is celebrated; La festa dei Santi Patroni di Lecce takes place from the 24th to the 26th of August.

We love to go in April, when the wildflowers bloom in profusion, extending into May. Lecce is quite dry, so the chance of a soaking rain after March and before October is low.

September is many traveler's preferred vacation time. The crowds have slimmed down a bit and the weather is still quite temperate. If you like it cooler, temperatures sink in October.

Evenings are quite pleasant during the season, which is why you'll eat dinner quite late in Lecce, compared to the rest of Italy.

Just south of Lecce you'll find the Greek Towns of the Salento.
