Amazing to sit in the very seats the ancient Greeks themselves sat upon and bring you right into the centre of history

The best way of seeing this is to enter at the southern gate (which is also less crowded) and walk up. You get good views from above as well as you proceed along the paths to the main area. Head right along the eastern path...More

There is not much left unfortunately and compared to the other theatre it's not that impressive but one can imagine what it must have looked like 2000 years ago in its full glory. This is part of the acropolis trail so you will come across...More

This is a great theater which can be viewed from the street below and above from the acropolis. I only wish that I could have walked through it. I didn't see anyone going through, so I don't know if it is not open to tourists...More

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer
numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth

with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
