The theater of Dionysos was a great site to include in our walk. We went there right from the Parthenon (without leaving this site). It's a nice, short walk and it was not crowded at all. It isn't restored yet, so you can sit and imagine what it was years ago.

This was the last place for me to see on the 12€ ticket. Performances here must've been awesome. There isn't much left left of the theatre building, but the seats are still there. You can climb around and sit on nearly all of the seats, all except the first row, which look like VIP seats. Beautiful.

The preservation of this theater is great to see among the historical sites that are now in ruins. We could walk around the seats and take in the atmosphere and view of this site. We were fascinated by the front seats with individual curved carvings to separate each seat and holes at the edge of each one. Great site to... More

Its a vast interesting stadium as you enter the base of the hill. The steps are the seats and the stage has been through many generations over centuries.

The Theatre of Dionysos is a beautiful ancient site and a must see. We stopped here while on our guided walking tour (with Athens Walking Tours) and our tour guide gave a history with brilliant descriptions and stories of Oedipus the King.

As we walked up toward Acropolis hill you come to this theater first. I was impressed. I'm still impressed as it hasn't undergone as much efforts to save it as the Odeon you see after you pass the Stoas of Eumenes. This is a much smaller venue in a much more advanced stage of decay. But I can still picture... More

Since it is part of the visit to the Acropolis, it fits in okay. There are better preserved Odea around the country, and also within the Acropolis. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it on its own.

Located at the very bottom of Acropolis Hill, this Theatre might not have too much to offer in terms of sculptures or monuments but still it is an impressive structure nevertheless.

Theater of Dionysos is located at the very entrance of the Acropolis. This part itself is not that good preserved and it is also not as amazing as the temples on the top of Acropolis. Still, its quite impressive

Amazing. One of few places where you can walk on the ruins. Very quiet late in the afternoon when you can sit and relax surrounded by history. A must desire in Athens.
