Let your imagination take you back to the Greek and Roman theatre productions, with masks on display and information about the satyrs, tragedies and comedies which were staged in this venue. If you can ignore the open air exhibit of 21st Century plastic drinks bottles, other rubbish and the smell of urine at the upper railings where the stray cats... More

The Roman theatre is not intact but it is in a quite good condition. You can see it easily even without paying the entry.

This "museum" was full of models made of paper mache or similar material and appeared to contain nothing authentic except for the theatre itself. Save yourself the entry fee and see another Roman theatre for free in Piazza Sant'Oronzo.

The theater is in good condition as ancient theaters go. The museum attached is small and basic but serves the purpose of explaining the basics of how a Roman theater worked. Cheap entry, and being able to climb around the seats is cool.

I'm very glad I checked this out but it was pricey to get in - all things considered. However, if they spend the entry on making more of the museum then this will be an awesome attraction one day. It must be a magnificent place to see a performance at. If you LOVE history then do it, it's great to... More

The Lecce 2nd Century Roman Amphitheater, is located at the St. Oronzo Main Square near the statue of Lecce's patron Saint: St. Oronzo and the Tourist Information office. Check with the tourist office for a free city map and a calendar of events held in this ancient amphitheater not to be confused with Lecce's Romano Theatre. Although the amphitheater is... More

I have a sense many tourists confuse Romano Theatre with the Roman 2nd century Amphitheater that is located directly at Lecce's St. Oronzo main square with its tall statute of St. Oronzo dominating the square and the tourist information steps away. Pick-up a free city map at the tourist information and have the receptionist mark Romano Theatre on the map... More

Nice little theater to see and tour! Small little museum inside and with a few costumes to show what they were wearing during performing there acts!
