Great but

Great amphitheater. Unfortunately, as other places of this type, did not survive in top condition for our time. But you must see it, when you are in Lecce.

Located in the heart of Lecce, the Italians don't just restore their historic finding but use them too. These are used for concerts, recitals and performances in the evenings. Good to see that it's not just something to look at from a distance.

Nice amphitheatre in the old centre of Lecce. Especialiy because it looks like it belongs in the current city center. The theatre is also used for performances which looks very good.

The ampitheatre is surrounded by modern buildings and set below street level. It can only be viewed from the street and being so enclosed loses some of the appeal of the site.

No where near as big as the colosseum, yet, still stunning it sits in the center of a 'modern' city. Saw it at night, in the light of a full moon and bathed in the cities yellow lights. Makes you feel like you are in a story book.

It is good to see such preservation. The ruins are protected and still in use and very easy to get to in Lecce.

We got this place in a preparation for a event and so will you if I am not mistaken. It's for sure a place you should visit cause the city is really small. So not hard feelings for this place. Just give it a try and if you get it empty you are a lucky one :)

Anfiteatro - Built between the 1st and 2nd century AD. It was discovered at the beginning of the 1900's, during construction. At a time when Lecce had a population of 4,000, the amphitheatre could accommodate 25,000 spectators. Elliptical in shape, it measures 102 metres x 83 metres.
