We had 5 days in Lecce and our B and B overlooked the Piazza Orono. Totally fascinating, both during the day and in the evenings. Always a buzz about the place, lots of nice bars and cafes, (and a MacDonalds - not quite so expected!)...More

The first thing you think when you enter in this square is the sense of calm and slowness typical of Salento. A wide square surrounded by monuments of different epochs: baroque, early decades of the 20th century and, obviously, the Roman amphitheater. In the center...More

It seemed like more of a busy crossroads than an elegant square. The Roman theater at one end was opposite a chain hamburger restaurant; people ignored the good statue of the saintly bishop that saved the town centuries ago.

The square is large and it has to one side the old Roman Amphitheatre which is large and impressive as well as the Sedile, a tall monument. Other than that square is fairly standard and not that impressive with one corner with a chain restaurant...More

The best thing about this square ius that it has a McDonalds in it with toilets in the basement which can be accessed after buying something and putting in a pin code found on the receipt.
