“Amazinging, you can see what it must have been like”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

The restoration has been so well done, you can practically hear the roar of the crowd. Downside is you can't get in to look around, only take photos from Acropolis or from outside. they do hold concerts there, so check the website before you go.

“Get a seat, get a pillow!”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

If you happen to be in Athens during a concert night, give it a go, especially if a popular Greek artist is performing. It will be a memorable experience, and the view behind the stage is amazing!

“An amazing structure that still functions.”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

You ticket to the Acropolis allows you to visit this amazingly restored and maintained theatre. I was told performances still occur there during the summer, so I'll definitely would love to experience that.

“Visit on the way to the Parthenon”
Reviewed 14 April 2012

It is part of the archeological park around the Acropolis.
Your ticket to the PArthenon allows you to visit the Odeion.
Well preserved structure. Not so sure about the extent of restoration (seems to be overdone).
