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.

I think the think with lecce is to get up early and enjoy it on your own, or even when the siesta is on 1-5.... wonderful town that is so manageble on foot or Bike. Enjoy

Not too much to get excited about ... and how gauche is that?? But Puglia is littered with Greek and Roman sites and this didn't do much for us.

July is probably a very hot period to visit Lecce but at least the municipality should keep this beautiful archeological spot nice and clean .... It was not!

After an exhaustive search for parking we eventually made our way to the old town. The Roman Forum was the first site we visited and it was impressive. It was built in the 2nd century and held 25,000 people. Having just watched the Gladiator Series on TV this felt very real. The whole city is a Baroque Feast and full of life! The Piazza Duomo (Cathedral) is huge.
