Part of civilization

In the center of the city of Lecce lies this amphitheater. It is quite well preserved and reveals a part of civilization. Do not miss it if you visit that city.

We didn't even know these ruins were here so it was pleasant surprise to find them. Takes you back in time.

Well preserved and improved a little for safety. Free, and interesting to see how it was used so many years ago.

Best to have a guide who can give you the background to its discovery and original Roman use partly excavated. Easy to see from the Road. You cannot go down into the amphitheatre.

Truly saying I was contemplating for along time the brick constructions of the arches supporting this ancient structure. It is not the Colosseum, of course, but its beauty can be adored too. Stop for a moment on sides and watch the precision of the architectors......

Well worth stopping by and having a look. Quite a small Amphitheatre, and half still hidden. But well lit at night and if you can shut out all the noise of daily life, its thought provoking to think what happened here 2 centuries ago...........

We happened upon the Amphitheater Romano as we were exploring the town of Lecce at night.....It brings you right back to the days of the Romans....Magical.

Incredible that this amphitheatre was only discovered last century. To think of all that ancient history under your feet....free to look at from above in the middle of town. The other half is still under the square....great pics from the front with the old buildings in the background.

One would recognise this as an amphitheatre but quite a small one by other standards. There was no opportunity to enter the site but from above one could get a good impression of the goings on centuries ago.

Deserves a visit but it#s even more remarkable that the other half is still under the adjoining square!
