It's seen from the acropolis and amazing up close. Entrance is from a different gate but with the same ticket. It's being restored and it's still amazing.

Fantastic little ruin located below the Acropolis in the same vicinity. You get a real idea of how it was in the day with a few of the original chairs still in place with the previous occupiers names still visible! You can walk on some areas and not other areas of the ruin.

This stunning theatre sits right below the Acropolis, and adds to the spectaular view from up there. Up close, its no less spectacular, this beautful theatre (built circa 390BC) could seat up to 17000 people, still has the beautiful reliefs where the stage once stood. If you are visiting the Parthenon, you must take in this whole site, which includes... More

The layout of the acropolis is wonderful. By wandering up the side and winding around to the top you can get a real feel for how the place was layed out and functional. The theatre is nice and has a lot of historical significance. Definitely worth a stop on the climb to the acropolis.

The theatre provides another link to the history of the area and lies near the entrance to the Acropolis Museum which is worth being your starting point prior to visiting either here or the Acropolis. Going in this order enables one to gain the insight that enables you to appreciate what still exists of the remains of these archeological treasures.... More

Interesting to see on the walk up to the Acropolis, make sure to take your guide book as there is only a small amount of information on site. Free for EU students.

Small Theater ruin-2 Euros. Many people start here for their walk up to the Acropolis. You can purchase the special 12 Euros pass for the Acropolis and also good at several other attractions. Pass good for 4 days, I recommend this pass for saving money on the other attractions.

Theatre of Dionysus is big theatre on the south-east slope of Acropolis of Athens. It was used during the Dionysus Eleuthereus festivals, and is not very well-preserved. It is often bypassed by tourists because of "more interesting" well-known nearby structures of Acropolis. I should say that an all-inclusive path through monuments of Acropolis is to start at the secondary entrance... More
