a very impressive ancient theatre , breathtaking when you watch any festivity during summertime exactly under the Parthenon temple. Magic in case of fullmoon

This open theatre is not only ancient and stunning, but still functional. It is one of the stops on the way up to the Acropolis and is well worth a visit.

You need to get photos from below the Acropolis and up on the Acropolis looking down into the Theatre. I wish we could have seen a concert or movie here, but it was amazing just walking in the footsteps of history.

This ancient theater has been mostly restored but still holds the charm and style of the past. You can get a glimpse from below without entering into the Acropolis area. However, the views from above, from along the walk to the Acropolis are fantastic.

This theatre can be easily seen from the Acropolis. It’s still used for concerts and performances but access is restricted when it’s not in use.

As you climb up the Acropolis, you pass by the Herod Atticus Odeon. You cannot go in it unless you go for an event (play, concert, etc) but you can look down into it. Next time I am in Athens, I am going to make...More

Our guide told us there was a one-night-only concert in the evening, and where tickets might still be available (if we were lucky). WE WERE LUCKY! We were able to get three adjoining seats on the 14th row and we watched the great romantic tenor,...More
