“You can find this ancient structure in the southern part of the Piazza Sant’Oronzo. This amphitheatre was not unearthed until 1929 but it was built in the second century AD and had a capacity of 25,000. It is possible today to take tours of the theatre and see the remains of this once impressive structure. Much of the stairs, seating, external walls and columns still stand in a fantastic condition and you can really gain a great sense of the magnificence of this arena. For those who love ancient history there is no better site in Lecce to visit.”

“Try to go there either at sunrise or at sunset. This odd-shaped and tucked away piazza will turn a soft salmony color. It is generally very quiet, no cars allowed, and if you sit at the back end of Syrbar, you can sip your drink or eat your lunch while enjoying the architecture and the sky.”

“E' la piazza politica della città, dove ha sede il Comune di Lecce. Qui troviamo anche l'Anfiteatro Romano, al centro della piazza il mosaico con la Lupa, simbolo della città. La piazza è ampia e soleggiata; è piacevole godere la sua atmosfera ed alzare lo sguardo per ammirare la grande statua di Sant'Oronzo che benedice la città. It is the city's political square, where the City Council is located. Here there is also the Roman Amphitheater, in the center of the square the mosaic with mum wolf, a symbol of the city. The square is wide and sunny; it is pleasant to enjoy its atmosphere and look up to admire the great statue of Sant'Oronzo that blesses the city.”

“The Roman Theatre of Lecce, as a hidden treasure amid the alleys of the historic centre, opens up amid the roof gardens of 18th- century palaces. The Roman Theatre, in the heart of the historic centre of Lecce, embedded amid baroque alleys, suddenly appears, almost intact. Built in the 2nd century AD, it was forgotten for a long time, covered by gardens and palaces and absorbed by the 18th century city, until it was rediscovered in 1929. The large cavea of almost 70 metres, built according to the Greek style on a rocky slope, indicates that here there was enough space for 4000 spectators. Opened to the public in 1940, it was restored again at the end of the 90s, when it was built the Museum of the Roman Theatre, which keeps its finds, such as the marble statues which decorated the scaenae frons, among which a head of Asclepius and the statues of Athena, Artemis, Ares and Heracles. The wonderful theatre is the seat of shows and plays, also thanks to the quite unusual silence around there, despite the night life of the nearby historic centre. ”

“Located in the Piazza del Duomo, Lecce cathedral is on par with the Basilica di Santa Croce as the most important religious buildings in the city. Constructed in the late 17th century, this cathedral also features a Baroque design similar to the basilica and has an opulent northern façade and a beautiful bell tower. The northern façade contains some magnificent stone statues and sculptures and faces the charming cathedral square. In contrast to the Basilica di Santa Croce, the interior of the Cathedral is highly decorative and features a myriad of gold artwork, opulent arches and a ceiling that contains some gorgeous historical artwork. Furthermore there is also twelve chapels within the church, each of which is dedicated to a different saint or religious figure.”
