Was quite interesting to peek into the odeon, which unfortunately was closed when we were there.. You could see much of it by looking through the gated entryways. Is an impressive structure, quite grand, and in an excellent state of preservation / reconstruction.

The structure looks well preserved and we took some great photographs of the place. It can be seen even while going up the stairs for acropolis and is a structure to behold.

If you find yourself in Athens from June to September try to watch a live theatrical or musical performance in this theater. It's one of a lifetime experinces not only if you love the ancient greek culture, but for people who are interested in world class shows.

I don't know how comfortable the marble would be to sit on but I guess the Greeks found away to make it comfortable for their theater entertainment! You can't miss this place when visiting Acropolis as you'll pass it on the way to the top! It would've been real cool if they let us sit on the steps, I think... More

Look at the engineering and imagine yourself at a performance, a LONG TIME AGO. Unfortunately, the gates into the actual performance space were locked, but you can get a great view from the Acropolis.

Incredible view from the Acropolis makes the coolest selfies. Aswell as a the walk through on the lower ground level. A true structural masterpiece.
