We went out with 9 people, first your bike was properly adjusted and we got water and then we went on the road. It was a nice international group and the route was manageable despite the heat, with regular stops at the sights and a lot of explanation about everything. Our guide, Antonio, is a walking/cycling history book, learned a lot again. Big thumbs up!

Thanks to Audrey and Davide for a nice and interesting tour of the historic city of Lecce. They told us several humorous anecdotes and explained several super interesting facts and details about the architecture and the history of the buildings of the city.
