"Take the train from Naples to Lecce too. You'll need to take a regional train to Caserta and transfer to a Eurostar. The total cost is 38.40 euro and the travel time is around 5 and a half hours. You can check specific schedules at:"

"i think that all the previous answers are correct! i live in italy, but in Milan... and i think the train is the best solution... but whatch out: often trains in the south of italy go funny! you might have to wait a lot and travel in bad conditions!!! but i'm sure you will love it! kisses!"
belzebu :
"only with train, ROMA- NAPOLI; NAPOLI-BARI e BARI-LECCE"
Gud.Love.Boy :
"train..."
bluebutterfly161985 :
"I defiently think that train is the best way. However, try and get on the Eurostar, because those trains are alot nicer. They cost more but they offer good quality. You can take the Eurostar from Rome to Naples, but then to get to Lecce you would need to take Trenitalia. Now, just to prewarn you, on Trenitalia, you are going to get alot of people that don't have seats therefore, they may be sitting in your seats, depending on how long the journey is. You will need to literally kick them out in order to get your seats. As well, the train will be crowded with people in the aisles who didn't get a seat. I went from Paola to Piacenza, an 11 hour ride on Trenitalia and it was like that. So, take a look at the Trenitalia website for more information: Also, this is very important. Before you board on a Trenitalia train, you need to go to a yellow box beside the train and stamp the date on your ticket. If you don't, and when they come around to check your ticket, you will get fined 25 Euros. Alot of tourists don't know that therefore, it's good to know beforehand. If you ride on the Eurostar, you don't need to stamp your ticket because all of those seats are reserved and they check them on the train. Good luck. If you need anymore help, let me know."

Una recente notizia a dir poco curiosa, anzi direi assurda... richiesta ufficialmente alla città di Lecce, la restituzione della colonna con la statua di Sant'Oronzo...
