Athens Sights & Monuments - The best-preserved monument of the Acropolis is a stone theatre, or the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. This theatre was built in the year 161 and is still widely used for various activities. Unfortunately, the roof of the valuable cedar of Lebanon to this day has not been preserved, but it is perfectly preserved with a white marble bench, a stone wall, and the scene behind her. Since ancient times, the theatre has been famous for its excellent acoustics, which still surprise many visitors.
Today you can attend the Athens Art Festival, musical concerts, and classical tragedies under the night sky with a marvellous acoustic experience. All events are held from May to early October since the theatre is open. The Herodeion Theatre stands on Dionysiou Areopagitou Pedestrian Street, right under the Acropolis in Athens. ►View all Athens sightseeing
