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

Outstanding semicircular theatre with a museum building. Mosaic floor replicas on the walls. Interesting descriptions of early Greek and Roman productions.

Right in the heart of the city, disappointing that it is not better looked after. We did not feel that it was truly valued, there was litter thrown down into the area which seemed to be there for the duration of our stay. Could be a much better feature, underutilised

In some ways, this set of Roman remains was more pleasant to visit than the larger amphitheatre. It was in a quieter location, away from the noise of traffic, but still in the centre of the historic part of Lecce. Like the amphitheatre it was in reasonably good condition.

It is quite an experience to sit where theatre goers sat two thousand years ago, but I found the museum even more worthwhile. Or, to be more precise, the downstairs part that is actually about (Greek and) Roman theatre. It explains clearly and concisely what Romans looked for and what they did in their theatres in a clear and very... More
