This could be one of the best examples of Roman history and architecture. It's located right in the center of the main piazza of the old section of town. Incredible! It's in such remarkable condition you can visualize a gladiator entering the arena.

Although a must see it looked uncared for. Looking down on the Roman amphitheater from the Piazza, litter and debris were clearly visible. We found an information panel, but it was difficult to read. Such a shame to treat such an amazing site with such...More

This excavated amphitheatre is right in the centre of Lecce. It is not open to the public, but you can view it easily from above. It is not on the scale of other Italian roman amphitheatres, but you can get a really good impression of...More
