For 3 Euro it can't be beat. Very interesting and you can get in and out in 30 minutes. Read the article in the NY Times. It's actually more engrossing than the article suggests.

We popped in here for a visit on an overcast day. It was very interesting to see the layers of development that have made Lecce the city it is today. I recommend you visit this small museum

Everybody has been to a PUBLIC museum or even a PRIVATE museum owned by a trust or foundation. But how many times have you been to a FAMILY run museum, where the founder and manager and discoverer and cashier and custodian and trustee and geologist and art director and so on is the PAPA and his MOGLIE (wife) and his...

An amazing place that was going to be a restaurant until the owner tried to find the sewer to fix a water problem... You are encouraged to descend the twisting metal staircase and view their excavation and discoveries and share their wonderment. (3 euros)

A tiny jewel of a museum that is a private home. Thousands of years of history all around you and your tour guide is a family member. A must see in southern Italy.

Interesting little house like museum which began as a house and where a cistern with a story was discovered. The attendant handed out a self service guide and ensures we saw what what we needed too . Puts the age and history of the area into perspective.

We visited yesterday with our two children 6 and 10. The children went in free and we paid a few euros each to a very welcoming gentleman on the door. He gave us an English guide to follow which was very informative and easy to use. Each point of interest was numbered to a corresponding explanation in the guide. There... More

Certainly this trip to Italy has had some interesting moments and one such was yesterday at the Faggiano Museum in Lecce, a brilliant, small museum, totally unlike any as I've ever seen before and fascinating as it was by chance that it's long history was discovered not too many years ago when some remodeling was done that led to significant...

A very charming and quirky little museum. Parts of this old building have been conserved in order to expose a very interesting history of not just the building itself but also of the site upon which the current building is standing. A very charming and helpful lady greeted me and though we didn't speak the same language she was very... More
