Day 2 - LECCE
Morning - Papier-mâchè class in Lecce
Explore the world of paper-mâché and the craftsmanship of typical artifacts of the Salento tradition, an expression of a century-old art that combines paper-mâché and clay to create sacred and profane statues. The workshop, in addition to providing historical notes on the origins of paper-mâché, will give the unique, original and unforgettable opportunity to “touch” the production of art pieces, participating in the creation of statues in papier-mâché, thus offering the exceptional opportunity to deepen the knowledge of this centuries-old form of Lecce craftsmanship. You will learn about the materials used, and you will experience the surprise of being able to create papier-mâché objects with your own hands.
Meet your guide for a private guided tour of Lecce. Lecce is an important stage for art and culture lovers. In fact, it is the main Baroque city in southern Italy. Walking in the city center is a dive into the past, between churches and antique buildings that keep precious details and decorations. You will love this deep dive into Lecce art and culture!
Day 3 - CELLINO AND PORTO SELVAGGIO
Morning - Wine tasting with light lunch
Drive to one of the most iconic winery in the Salento area, built inside an old Masseria and surrounded by beautiful vines of Negramaro and Primitivo grapes.

The tour is followed by a lunch with a tasting menu of carefully selected traditional local dishes paired with 5 representative wines.
In the afternoon, drive to the Regional Nature Park of Porto Selvaggio. You will have a private trekking with our guide. This park covers an area of 1100 hectares in the municipality of Nardò and is part of an area by the sea, where reforestation has been started since the 50s.
