There is an incredible mix of ancient roman architecture with baroque one. In front of the amphitheater/historic site, there is a imposant baroque building, making this place unique.

It was wonderful to walk around this remarkable excavation in the center of Lecce! To see where the animals and people entered and exited the stage area and the seating was terrific.

This is a beautiful city with a myriad of attractive baroque buildings & the city "fathers" keeping it clean & very pedestrian friendly. Also remains a living breathing commercial city not sterile & dominated with tour groups.
