I had the chance to live there a historic moment, when Foo Fighters performed. This is the music I love and I'll never forget it.

What a great backdrop for a theatre and I would have loved to be able to see a show there. The backdrop of the stage is magnificient nunique. Easily seen when on a tour of the acropolis.

Anyone who visits Athens should attend this theatre even once. During summer various performances take place, it is magical, located under Acropolis.
