Fascinating!

Great view down onto the theatre from the Acropolis. Don;t forget to walk around up there and look down and out, there are many interesting things you can see from up there.

Undoubtedly being in irodeion theater a summer night with full moon is a must while visiting Athens or just be an Athenian citizen. My preference is listening to the tenor Mario frangoulis, but whatever you choose definitely you will enjoy it!
