Restoration work earlier uncovered many artefacts of the old theatre. The half amphitheatre is excellent and the displays, whilst simple were worth seeing at a cost of just 3 euros per person. Congratulations Lecce on preserving such a gem.

It was operating apparently in the fiest and second century AD and is remarkabel waht remains. Although only one third of the original you can see how it might handle the 25,000 people it was designed for. Well worth a visit.

You can view this theater as you are strolling along the quaint streets of Lecce. A small part of the Roman theater still remains. Most of it was dismantled over the ages to use the blocks somewhere else.

Besides giving access to walk in the theater itself, the little museum had interesting information about Greek and Roman theater and about the Via Appia, including some actual stones from the Via Appia.

We chanced on this by accident and were lucky to overhear an American guide explaining how the ruins had been discovered. Although there were some people within the grounds it was not accessible from where we were, but still interesting to see.

Easy to view from outside the railings. We were unable to gain access as only opens at set times. However there is no difficulty in making out the formation of the theater from the remaining ruins.

As with so many museums around here, the opening hours are not always as stated! We eventually got to see this though. Entrance fee just 1€. Small exhibition with limited English translations. Good to be able to actually wander around the theatre itself. Worth a...More
