Fascinating museum exhibits as well as access to the ruins. Learn about the Roman plays, as well as the appliance way.

Like the amphitheatre in the main square this theatre again gave a neglected appearance so we weren't motivated to visit the museum. Our impression is that the city promotes its baroque architecture (with good cause) rather than the much earlier Roman.

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

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.
