Same ticket is valid as for Acropolis and it is well worth seeing. This was pretty big theater long ago. I was surprised to find a machine for water in pet bottles for very low price - 0,5liter for 0,35 EUR. Nice gesture.

Unless you do some research on history of this spot you wont be able to appreciate it much. Its pretty well preserved and unlike the other parts of the Acropolis you can actually walk around all up in it! The photo nerd in me went from step to step, and up the hill to get the pictures I wanted. We... More

Not much to left of the ancient theater, but amazing to see the size of these old places for 2000 years ago.

It's the feeling that you get when you visit this ancient site. Destroyed but really interesting to explore. Just go there and imagine a play of ancient greek tragedy.

Visited after seeing the Acropolis, as this is just down the hill. Said to be the first theatre, so it's good to see for historical purposes, but there's not a lot here. 15-20 mins was all we spent in this location. Entry free with Acropolis ticket.

This old theater located near the Acropolis and was a place for 17,000 seats, today only 20 lines are exist, but think on the past is the issue.
