“Acropolis-Theater below Acropolis”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Small Theater ruin-2 Euros. Many people start here for their walk up to the Acropolis. You can purchase the special 12 Euros pass for the Acropolis and also good at several other attractions. Pass good for 4 days, I recommend this pass for saving money on the other attractions.

“Theatre of Dionysus Eleuthereus”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Theatre of Dionysus is big theatre on the south-east slope of Acropolis of Athens. It was used during the Dionysus Eleuthereus festivals, and is not very well-preserved. It is often bypassed by tourists because of "more interesting" well-known nearby structures of Acropolis.
I should say that an all-inclusive path through monuments of Acropolis is to start at the secondary entrance nearby the Acropolis Museum, to the south-east of Acropolis hill, to take a look at the monuments of both South-east and south-west slopes, and then to proceed further up to the Beule Gate and Propylea, the entrance to the Acropolis itself. That way is more quiet with less tourist crowds, and one can enjoy the walk in green areas, of course that´s if you have enough time for a visit, maybe 3 hours or so.

“Interesting site, visit as part of an Acropolis trip”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

This is a well preserved archeological site, though should be seen as part of a trip to the Acropolis (get a joint ticket) - it doesn't take too long to look around so not worth paying especially to see it. I've knocked a couple of stars off for the lack of visitor information on site (or, at least, I couldn't see anything).

“Check out if you have the 12 euro Acropolis ticket”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Not worth it a la carte so to speak, but if you shelled out 12 euros for the Acropolis ticket and are looking to punch that ticket, this is a good place to visit and make a climb. It's part of the Acropolis hill and across the street from the Acropolis Museum. The street passing both is a breezy, sun and music-filled thoroughfare that makes for a nice stroll.

“An easily missed part of the Acropolis”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

The theatre is accessed from a branch along the path up to the Acropolis (at the "guard" gate).
Take the time to go down the path and view this amazing ancient theatre.
Part of the Acropolis.
