LECCE: A perfect little gem of a Baroque city,Lecce’s crowning glory is the Church of the Holy Cross, completed in 1695. Next to the church is the Governor’s Palace, a former convent. The cathedral is one of the most important in Italy, with an enormous five-story campanile that towers 70 meters (231 feet) above the square.
MATERA: The city of Matera forms a bowl cut into the rocks, with unique cave dwellings known as sassi. In the 1950s, this was one of the poorest areas of Italy and the people living in the sassi had an unbelievably squalid existence. Their plight was highlighted by Carlo Levi in his book Christ Stopped at Eboli, and the government was finally shamed into rehousing them in modern homes on the outskirts of the city. In 1993 Matera was made a World Heritage Site, and since then, people have been restoring the sassi turning them into hotels, guest houses and craft workshops.
