This, combined with the laid back rhythm of daily life, will make you never want to leave. Moreover, you will receive a warm welcome from the incredibly kind locals!
The best way to get to Puglia is to fly to either the Bari or Brindisi airports. Brindisi airport is the closest to Lecce. For those not renting a car on arrival, there is a shuttle bus running from Brindisi to Lecce city centre.
