One of our favorite things to do while traveling is to visit historic places. The older the better for us!! It is always wonderful to see sites of this age as it takes you back in time. It is always amazing to see how something...More

This is a very well conserved historical roman amphitheater in Lecce. In the middle of the main square. Very well iluminarse and with tons of history. An attraction itself that you must see. Do not miss it.

This could be one of the best examples of Roman history and architecture. It's located right in the center of the main piazza of the old section of town. Incredible! It's in such remarkable condition you can visualize a gladiator entering the arena.

We took an iced coffee to-go and sat in the afternoon sun with view across the theatre. It is a Great place for a Stop and a little rest when in Lecce.

Only part of the amphitheater has been excavated. It doesn't have the appeal or views that most of the other Roman theaters had; it is now off to the side of a busy square.

Hadn't seen an amphitheatre like this before. While you can only see half (free viewing) you get a great feel for what it is like. It's a pity you are unable to get inside it.

The amphitheatre is only a couple of hundred yards from the cathedral in the centre of old town Lecce and is worth a visit. Less than half of the theatre is visible as the remainder remains buried under nearby buildings. We weren't able to walk...More
