We were actually supposed to get off at Bari to catch our ferry to Dubrovnik, but ended up missing the stop and found ourselves in Lecce with no trains back the other way. What a treasure of a town!
Much like many other reviewers, my girlfriend and I stumbled upon this little treasure while roaming the street of Lecce late on Thursday night. The theatre was being used for a graduation ceremony. Imagine graduating in an Anfiteatro used originally by the Romans almost 2000 years ago. Talk about inspiration!
Don't listen to the naysayers. Just take a moment and let your imagination wonder. This is a truly unique treasure and well worth a look.
