If you can hear a concert or opera there. The seating is hardly comfortable but it is an experience you will not forget.

It was so cool to see this ancient theatre restored and still able to be used for modern day entertainment. This was the first sight we saw as we made our hike up the Acropolis. We did not actually see a show while we were...More

We bought tickets to see a summer concert here because we wanted to check out the theater. We got to Maria Farantour, a Greek opera singer. It's a great place to see a show. The acoustics are wonderful even if the seating is cramped and...More

I saw this from the acropolis hill and it really took me by surprise! All of the amazing sites dotted around the hill are stunning. This huge stage and seating area looks like it's used for screenings today? Awesome day

Close your eyes and imagine you are in Ancient Greece watching a tragedy on stage! Saw the opera Madame Butterfly- my only complaint is the seating is not comfortable, but it was worth it for the magical experience.

Fortunately we could buy tickets online for the Opera Madama Butterfly. And were we lucky! An amazing evening. If you have the opportunity to see an opera or other event, GO FOR IT!

My husband loved this attraction. I found it a little disturbing. Something seemed wrong with seeing perfect theater seating in marble at the Acropolis. I understand the performance here are amazing and the highlight of many Athenians summer. But it just seemed a bit jarring....More

The Herod Atticus Odeon was not constructed in classical Athens but during the Roman occupation of Athens (160-169 A.D.). It was the tallest building in Athens for 2,000 years (45-56 meters high) and was actually roofed! What was amazing was the fact that there were...More

Didn't see a show or anything but is a really interesting part of the acropolis and I can imagine a show here would be an awesome experience. Fairly well preserved too.

It's well worth walking around the side of the Acropolis as well as the top as there are a few things to see. This well preserved Odeon is one of them.

Are tourists allowed inside the Herod Atticus Odeon during the day (when not viewing a performance)? I understand you can have a bird's eye view of the theatre from the Acropolis but is there a way to be admitted into the theatre--sit in the seats, see the stage or take a tour when there are no performances? If so, details on how you enter, hours, etc. would be appreciated.
