It is ruins of a roman theatre that is kept very well. A lot of visitors around it. Just around the corner is the best ice-cream in Lecce - Natalee.

We had expectations for our day visit to Lecce from our holiday trullo near Fasano. It is an easy drive down past Brindisi and a bit of pre-planning got us to the car park near Porta Napoli quite quickly. This is a short walk from...More

Wandering around Lecce shows what an underestimated, hidden gem this city is. I'm not a great lover of Baroque, but the outside of many buildings are very stylish and provide a lovely streetscene with innumerable, lanes, little cafes and bars. Very peaceful until the scooters...More

We loved every moment ,so much to do and see very friendly people always willing to help.Plenty of places to eat from fine dinning to snack bars.but it’s the architecture that is wonderful and the star of the city.

It's full of history but getting a quality meal here is difficult. The local folks are great. The restaurants are full of mediocre food & cheap wine. Better to go from November to April for the heat as well as less tourist traffic.

Lecce is beautiful, safe, clean and calm city. Centro storico is very well maintained, very clean. Most of it is walking area. The thing that surprises us the most is the atmosphere of the city - relaxed and calm. Simply, beautiful.

Very historic, beautiful and culturally rich town...you should not miss it if you’re traveling to Puglia. As described, it is characterized as the “Florence of Southern Italy” and I would more liken it to a quaint fusion of Florence and Rome. Very scenic, amazing Roman...More

We were bowled over by this place, and we love Roma and Firenze too. There's just so much. First things 1st (for Brits anyway) use 0039 in front of any number to make a call (and omit their zero). Second, hire a car if you...More

I love an amphitheater, especially one that is in the middle of an interesting old town and that can be enjoyed while sipping excellent coffee at a sidewalk cafe/pasticerria a few paces away.

You can spend easily a week in Puglia. It is not dissimilar from Sicily, although there is less arabic influence and more greek and norman. Lecce is probably the most charming of the "big" towns but it is far from the sea... More

Outside the old city walls there is parking space. Some of it is free. But beware. It can be very busy
