You don't understand the true size and scale of the Odeon until it's there and your staring down at it and it is amazing not just at night lit up but how intact and gigantic it really is. It's free in when you buy a ticket to Partheom and Arcopolics.

The place is beautiful and can be seen from both the bottom and the top of the acropolis, but obviously it only has an interest if you have a chance to see during a proper performance and ideally in spring or summer.

Visit it during the Athens Festival in the summer. No matter what the show is, just by the tickets and enjoy an unforgettable evening in this beautiful roman odeon. Everlasting memories.

You can enjoy its perfect view from the Akropolis. Its orchestra pit & bleachers have been restructured in the III century p.C.

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.
