But that's not all. What's the leggenda del cane di San Lorenzo? Why are the Genoans known for being tirchi e avidi, stingy and greedy? And which world-famous product was invented in Genoa?

Sonia tells us about her hometown, Florence, the city of the Renaissance.

The perfect balance of beaches and culture makes Lecce the ideal vacation destination! Linda invites Sen to her place to tell her all about her hometown, and with her words she paints us a picture of lavishly decorated Baroque buildings and hidden treasures: the profile of a woman in a façade, or the labirinto di piccole strade, a winding maze of alleys in the heart of the city. There's so much to discover! What does a caffè leccese taste like? How is the festa di Sant'Oronzo celebrated? And what does it have to do with the "living room of the city"? It's hard to believe that this city of culture is nestled in the paradise between il Mar Ionio and il Mar Adriatico!
