Artisan Challenge


Architecture buffs will love this guided tour of Lecce, Puglia’s Baroque jewel. Joined by a renowned local sculptor, you’ll admire the city’s ornate facades hewn from the beautiful honeyed limestone known as Pietra Leccese, before heading to his nearby workshop to carve your own work of art from this malleable stone.

Up to 20 guests


Lecce is famous for the craft of papier maché, a centuries-old artform unique to Puglia. Visit a typical artisan’s workshop, or Bottega d’Arte, to learn how craftsmen began manipulating paper to create the illusion of silver, marble and gold before modelling your own work of art from this incredibly versatile material.
