  • A must see for tourists to make a blast from the past where there were shows and is still used for various events. Discovered in 900 during the construction of the Bank of Italy, and was exposed to just a third, the rest is under the buildings that surround it.

  • Stroll around downtown and being under the eyes a piece of history, well preserved and respected, does honor to those who have had the strength and determination to pursue the objective of the development of a unique heritage.

  • This ampitheater is not one of the most complete in the world - but another wonderful treat in this fantastic southern city.  more »

  • This nice Theatre is right in the middle of lovely Lecce. It was a quiet day when we visited (Sunday in August). But it was still surprising how few tourists were in town....and almost none a the Amphiteatre. Because it is actually quite a beauty, but not always open for public. There was a stage for concerts, which messed up the view a bit of course. Nice to see the theatre is still used....but on the other hand I'm not sure how good that is, if it is still used regularly. Because the stone surface might wear off a lot faster that way, would be a shame. Lecce is a real beauty, but not so popular yet. Too bad, because the Theatre, the Piazza Del Duomo and the Centro Storico in general are really beautiful. But Southern Italy might be a tad too far for many. But if you're in the area, be sure to make a visit.
  • Located in the city centre, impressive Roman amphitheatre, often used for concerts or theatre performances.
  • History right in front of you, well preserved.
  • Well worth a visit.
  • Beautiful and right in the historical centre of the town.
