Although the amphitheater has only been partially excavated and renovared, the site is very interesting. NOT 2 B MISSED.

The Anfiteatro Romana has been discovered in excavations conducted in 1938. Only part of the struture was discovered and some was also renovated. According to the findings, archeologists documented the the amphitheater to the first century BCE.

Amazing in the city center!
Oct 2019
This site was found in the early twentieth century while under ground pipe work was being done. Your able to walk around a large section of the site but another section is still under the streets and sidewalks. This was an amazing find under the streets of the center of the city. Great information office at this site too!

Well preserved Roman theatre
Sep 2019
The anfiteatro Romano is central in the old part of Lecce. You are able to walk around most of it and it helped us gain an appreciation of how industrious the Romans were, where ever they settled.

Surprised....

Our trip to Lecce was just for the day but we absolutely loved the place & we were pleasantly surprised at how large & well preserved the Roman remains are.
There are lots of other things to see in the city but don’t miss this one.
Close by there is a big Tourist Information office for anyone that needs help/advice/maps.

Impressive!
Sep 2019
The amphitheatre has been tastefully preserved. There are good views from all around the ampitheatre which viewers are still able to visualise how this may have looked centuries ago. If you are visiting Lecce it is one of the main sights to take in during a tour of the city.

Good view of amphitheatre

This is a well-preserved Roman amphitheatre which you can observe from the street. The main parts of the amphitheatre are visible.

Standard layout-well preserved section here
Sep 2019
This is a well preserved section of the original ampitheatre and there is enough to be able to imagin the layout and set up of the whole without really exciting those who have seen more complete examples elsewhere. Worth a look but not one to linger over when there is so much else nearby

It is half an ampitheatre but still impressive if you use your imagination and realise the other half is still there under buildings. It isn't Rome but to stand and admire is just worth it.

So pleased it has been preserved
Sep 2019
The section of the amphitheatre that remains is surrounded by modern buildings and shops. What remains shows you what a lovely structure it was.
