I bumped into this Roman theater by chance while strolling small streets. The theater can be seen from outside, for the proper visit you have to enter via Museum on the main street leading to the Cathedral. Even from outside is stunning and worth to pass by.

This Roman theater is tucked away in a residential area. The narrow crooked streets can make it hard to find. The restored theater is impressive.

This is a bit hard to find but a map will help. Tucked away in a neighborhood was a little surprising. The museum is a good starting point to understand this site. It's self guided, but well done. Your able to go outside, walk around and sit in the theater. Very cool when you think of the history.

I used to live with a view over it and absolutely loved taking it in, day or night, with the spire of the Duomo behind it. Bit tricky to find but worth it and near some quirky back street bars and restaurants which beat the touristy places.

Even though it is in the Centro Storico, it is somewhat confusing to find, but well worth it.
WE have yet to find the museum open, but you can wend your way round the back and have fantastic views of this amazing Roman structure with some of the original(?) associated buildings at the back.

Located a short distance from Piazza Sant’Oronzo, this “newly” uncovered remembrance from the past is well worth stopping for a visit. In addition to the theater complex that can be viewed free, there is also a museum. The admission price allows access inside the theater grounds.

Fascinating museum exhibits as well as access to the ruins. Learn about the Roman plays, as well as the appliance way.

An interesting visit which you can access from the main street and it was discovered back in 1929, costs only 3EURO to get in each and there was a beautiful mosaic piece of flooring to view, as well as the tragedy faces, and the theatre itself. You can sit and climb around in there and sit around in there...well worth taking the time to visit.

Although it's in the midst of the historic center of Lecce, and right on the way to the cathedral from Santa Chiara, I would guess many people pass by the Teatro Romano. Too bad, because it was quite interesting and informative.

The upper level of the museum gives a very good background explanation of Roman Lecce and the different types of theater (comedy, drama, farce) and masks and costumes. Then you head down to what's left of the 1st Century theater.

What's left is part (perhaps one third) of the lowest level (in very good condition) and stage of what once was a very large theater. Like the nearby amphitheater, much of the original Teatro Romano has been destroyed. It once had two, if not three, levels. What's left is about a dozen rows. Interestingly, the first three or four banks of rows are much wide than the "cheap seats" behind them.

Fun and interesting one hour stop.
