I’ve got quite a busy week coming up. In fact, today I’ll be logging a possible 13 hours at Clerkenwell Design Week, so I’m not going to have a lot of time to blog over the upcoming days. I decided that made this the perfect week to share some photos of my recent trip to Italy with you all, and, because my photo count for the whole holiday is in excess of 500, I thought I’d split it up into the three main cities we visited.
First up is Lecce, often called the “Florence of the South” for its rich Baroque architecture. The city seems to glow with a soft yellow light, thanks to the kind of limestone which was used in its historical centre. While I’m not generally a fan of the Baroque, I found myself utterly charmed by Lecce’s narrow streets, relaxed ambiance, countless churches and tasty treats (it’s famous for its pastries).
My sister and I stayed two nights in a lovely Airbnb flat, from which we explored the town, bought produce and cooked ourselves dinner, searched out the best gelato and photographed the days away.
