Great ruins in the city center. During our visit, opera was on the scene so we could feel the atmosphere of the place. It had not survived too much to our times.

fascinating and well-preserved. Lecce may be the cleanest city of the larger cities in the South of Italy very lovely. Would highly recommend visiting Lecce.

Only open mornings until 1.30pm but well worth visit. Attached museum contains quite a few artefacts and information about the drama acted out in the theatre. It was only discovered in 1920's and by that time well over half the theatre had been lost by...More

Interesting and easy to view Roman theatre in the middle of Lecce's historic district. As part of many wonderful buildings well worth a visit if in the region.
