What a treasure from antiquity. We first admired it while entering the Acropolis at its 8am opening. It was out of season so no concerts and it wasn’t open for walking around. Nevertheless we had fabulous vistas of the majestic sweep of the auditorium. It looked magnificent in the clear early morning light with blue skies as backdrop. Maria Callas was just one of the acclaimed performers to take to the stage, in 1957.

Such an amazing classic looking Roman structure. Due to Covid restrictions, you couldn't go into the theatre which was a shame. Good point was that there was no-one around so we could get unrestricted views into it from the outside. I will return to have a look when its open.

This point is inside Acropolis, so the same ticket is ok. The place is very beautiful and you can get a sense of what the theater plays were like at that time. I loved it.

Visited this beautiful amphitheater whilst exploring the Acropolis. Stunning location, looking down on the theatre from the Parthenon. We couldn't go inside unfortunately.

It was built in 161 AD by the Greek Herodes Atticus in memory of his Roman wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla. It was originally a steep-sloped theater with a three-story stone front wall and a wooden roof made of expensive cedar of Lebanon timber. It was used as a venue for music concerts with a capacity of 5,000. It lasted intact until it was destroyed and left in ruins by the Heruli in 267 AD.
