Majestic Theater

It`s quite impressive to see that this theater is still operational and above all, still majestic. If you have a chance to catch a performance there, DO NOT miss it!

Absolute check in on your visit to Acropolis and the Parthenon hill. If you have never been there, there is no way to describe the feeling. Herodium is the only place I would go to attend ANY kind of concert from folk dances to punk rock! Ok, I do exaggerate a bit but I wanted to stress the fact that... More

I was impressed by the excellent conditions this odeon is kept in. I couldn't attend a show, but I'm sure it would have been an interesting experience.

If you have a spare night in Athens and there is something on at the theatre...you should go! Settled at the foot of the Parthenon, this ancient theatre is truly a marvel of the Ancient world and of Ancient Athens.

You get to see it from behind a fence, while visiting the Acropolis. It's one of the best preserved structures on the site. It is the main venue for the annual Athens Festival.

with a little taste for history, this place is great. You should walk a long path but it worth it. It is nice and old.

This Odeon amplitheatre is located at the base of the Acropolis beneath the Parthenon...can be viewed from atop...occasional concert or plays are held on site, surprisely good acoustics. Second only to the massive and spectacular Epidadrus amplitheatre about 200 miles west on the Pelophonese.

Situated on the south side of the Acropolis this is a incredible ancient theatre, with a semi circle tiered set of seating, I found it to be as impressive as any of the temples on the acropolis
