Some reviewers have confused the Theatre of Dionysus with the Herod Atticus Odeon. They are entirely different sites. Both are located on the slopes of the Acropolis, but the Herod Atticus Odeon is more complete and still hosts performances today, while the Theatre of Dionysus...More

The ancient Greeks really loved their theater based on the number of theaters and their ruins. You can get an aerial view of this theater from atop the Acropolis.

A unique experience. Worth buying vertical seating if going in a group so that you can rest your back.

On the slopes of Acropolis this theatre is definitely worth a closer look. It may not be as well preserved as the Epidauros theatre, but this is the place where many plays of Sophocles and other classics have had their premiére. If only the stones...More

A part of ancient Acropolis, this arena gives you a perception that these people really liked theatres. Just close your eyes and imagine the life of ancient people. Their activities in the city and probably after busy day they were sitting on the same stone...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
