Some may say there is nothing here, but OMG. There is soooooooooo much. Take the time to sit in the seats and take it all in. Turn around and look up the cliff. The marvel of our ancestors is quite breath taking.

A total architectural marvel, this place has some amazing acoustics that were built eons ago. The great place to see if you are interested in history and architecture.

Well worth a visit, especially if you have prior knowledge of the site. Best to include in tour of other sites - does not take long to visit but very interesting.

This is located on the bank of the hill of the Acropolis. There's a few things to see here, including a well preserved Odeon, so is worth a look.

Dionysus was the mythical Greek god of viniculture, but his portfolio was also significant for theatre. Therefore, it should not be a surprise that a theatre located on the southern slopes of the Acropolis, the religious centre of ancient Athens, should be dedicated in his...More
