Infoleccee is an agency that has worked for years in Lecce and Salento in the field of tourist quality services.
Through two Information offices, located in the old town of Lecce, Infolecce establishes with the tourist a direct relationship which, over the years, has allowed then to form targeted propositions and services on the basis of the visitors’ needs.
From the guided tours, to the bicycle rental, to information about places to stay and transport, Infolecce operates with the purpose of making the tourist’s stay pleasant, practical and dynamic.
To be able to offer a high quality service it is also necessary to operate for the promotion and the enhancement of the territory itself together with the people who operate within it.
Therefore, Infolecce also cooperates with others who work in the same field (places to stay, restaurants, transport and cultural services etc.) operating with targeted promotional and advertising campaigns which can increase the visibility and strengthen the quality of the offered services.
