While spending a vacation in Lecce, we decided to visit this museum one day. It is just outside the old city walls by the police station. It is open on Sunday, and manned by two helpful attendants, who insisted we talk the elevator rather than...More

This museum has an amazing amount of Greek and Roman pottery. Unfortunately it is not too well signed but we knew what things were. It is well worth a look
