The Odeon or theatre of Herodes Atticus is a lovely sight in the Acropolis. Standing in a gorgeous semicircle in the southern side of the Acropolis, the beautiful structure was made by Herodes for his wife.

The stands, most of which have been restored in an amazing way, stand facing a stage which has a beautiful wall full of windows as its backdrop. It looks so grand even today; one can only imagine just how lovely it must have looked when performances were held in the glorious open theatre. The place is certainly one of the must-see sites in the Acropolis.

Interestingly, the theatre can still be used and after the massive restoration, it has been used for several different events.

Please note that the Odeion is open only for performances and the best ways to have a glimpse of this site is to view it from the Acropolis. If you are visiting Athens in summers, you can watch a performance staged here during the Athens Festival each year. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Athens itinerary 7 days.
