Although it's in the midst of the historic center of Lecce, and right on the way to the cathedral from Santa Chiara, I would guess many people pass by the Teatro Romano. Too bad, because it was quite interesting and informative. The upper level of...More

You don’t have to visit the museum to see the theatre - it can be seen fro the nearby street. However entry via the museum means that you can actually sit, walk and climb in the theatre itself and soak up the atmosphere. Moreover there...More

This old Roman theatre is well worth a look. Entrance is €3 and there is enough to see to justify it. We sat for a while on the old seating and you get a good impression of what it must have been like. Closes for...More

Restoration work earlier uncovered many artefacts of the old theatre. The half amphitheatre is excellent and the displays, whilst simple were worth seeing at a cost of just 3 euros per person. Congratulations Lecce on preserving such a gem.

It was operating apparently in the fiest and second century AD and is remarkabel waht remains. Although only one third of the original you can see how it might handle the 25,000 people it was designed for. Well worth a visit.

You can view this theater as you are strolling along the quaint streets of Lecce. A small part of the Roman theater still remains. Most of it was dismantled over the ages to use the blocks somewhere else.

There is nothing worth seeing in the God forsaken town of Ledcce but this is one of the places tourists are taken to.

The Roman theatre itself can be viewed from the street. You really don't need to pay the few extra euro's to get into the museum-which is disappointing. Most of the displays are reproductions and very poor ones. There's a bit on theatre during the Greek...More

Besides giving access to walk in the theater itself, the little museum had interesting information about Greek and Roman theater and about the Via Appia, including some actual stones from the Via Appia.
