Lecce for one day

Hi,

We are ending a bike tour through Puglia on Friday, Oct 10 at 11:30 am at the Lecce train station.

We would like to , ideally stay overnight in Lecce to explore but we have to catch a plane in Rome on Saturday, Oct 11 at 3pm.

Can someone please advise us :

1) is there a place to store our luggage at the train station in Lecce if we need to catch a train to Bari at 7 pm ?

2) What should we see in Lecce over 6 hours ? To give us a feel for the city (Cathedral ?).

3) Do you think it is feasible to stay overnight in Lecce, take an early train to Bari, then fly Bari to Rome by noon ? If so, what airline, train would you advise ?

Thank you so much !!

Cynthia

Hi the train station is close to the city centre. the cathedral is 15minutes walk. You can visit the old part of the city in 6 hours. You view the cathedral and teh square, Santa Crose, Pz St Oronzo, just walking in Lecce is great. Not sure about the suitcase, it should be possible at the deposito bagagli. I personally would take a late train from Lecce (9pm) and stay in bari for the night

I would not rely on train to Bari and flying to rome to catch an interational flight on the same day...no way. If you miss your flight you could be subject to buying a new one way ticket home...and that is probably three times as much as you paid for your original ticket to say nothing of getting seats. It "should" be okay to fly from Bari to Rome on the same day but you sound as if it will not be on the same ticket and again if your flight Bari Rome is delayed and you miss the flight same thing. Good rule is to overnight in the city from which you are flying out or have it on one ticket which can protect you in case of delay of the Bari-Rome flight. Lecce is a nice city but not worth all the hassle of just staying one night and risking the airline problems.
