No so easy to find, but once you found it, it was certainly worth looking. Very nice restored and it gave a good impression of its size and importance.

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.

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.

We chanced on this by accident and were lucky to overhear an American guide explaining how the ruins had been discovered. Although there were some people within the grounds it was not accessible from where we were, but still interesting to see.
