  • Gorgeous Roman amphitheatre in Lecce, in fact it was only discovered a slice the rest is still buried in that to find out would be demolished a good chunk of the town, including a 16th century Church and the castle of Charles the fifth, however what you see makes the idea, not to be missed.

  • In the heart of the city, very well maintained and still used for outdoor performances. Well worth a visit.

Where to stay in Lecce

To enjoy Lecce's medieval architecture, consider staying at a B&B in the town center. Elegant on the outside and comfortable on the inside, B&Bs in this area offer airy rooms and modern conveniences suitable for every budget. If you wish to avoid the crowds of the city's central areas, explore the lodgings offered by private guesthouses on the edge of town.
