    Herod Atticus built this roofed Odeon (in 161 B.C.) for music concerts in honor of his wife Regilla, after her death. Its magic and beauty, can only be understood when walking on the way to Acropolis. Read more

    A bit hard on your bottom and your back, can be very hot sometimes, but it is worth every minute of your time and every cent of your money to be here for a concert, ballet, play or whatever.

    A place to visit for sure if you're coming in summer during Athens Art Festival! An amphitheater on the base of the Acropolis rock.

    The correct name is "Odeion Herodou Attikou". Seriously. Herodium is a volcano-like hill near the city of Bethlehem where Herod the Great built a fortress and palace on the top.

    Try not to go for the exact opposite as well : getting here dressed like an ancient Greek female, in gladiator sandals, white gown and golden/silver earrings, only demonstrates stupidity and non-sense

    This 161 A.D. theatre stand three stories high and is laid in beautiful marble and ceramic pieces. Holds classical plays from May to October, and every belly dancer should visit.

    If you travel to Athens, Greece and don't visit The Odeon of Herodes Atticus on The Acropolis. Well, you are stupid! Phenomenal.

    Built in 161AD by Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife. Had a capacity of 5000. Lasted just over 100 years until destroyed by the Heruli in 267AD.

    Website said Oedipus (Sept 2017) had English surtitles, but it didn't. Made it unwatchable. Cushions provided, but no leaning back as peoples legs are there. Makes it impossible to leave a show early.

    to go to the ancient theater and comment nonsense about the museum shows at least ignorance about ancient Hellas. Aristophanis is on of the best ancient comedy writer.
