“Sparks the imagination!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

You can look down on this site as you ascend to the top of the Acropolis. It'swell preserved and will give you a great insight into the ancient city, as well as what the view would have been like from the upper mezzanine.

“Looks amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Sadly they do not do shows during the winter we were just able to look at it. I want to come back in the summer to see a show. Still very stunning to look at.

“Herodes Atticus Theater (Odeion)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

An evening concert or opera under the stars and the illuminated Acropolis towering above....quite an unforgettable sensory experience. One word on comfort........the seats are marble, as they have always been, and seat pads are a prudent investment.
