Acropolis - Odeon of Herodes Atticus, Athens: 31 reviews and 57 photos
The Odeon of Herodes Atticus was built in 161 CE by Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla. You will view this theater as you approach the top of the Acropolis and it is an open-air amphitheater which seats 5000 people.
The theater is still very much a avenue for musicals, concerts and dance events of the "Athens Festival" to this day. The designers of the past were practically geniuses for creating this masterpiece that not only lasted a long time but also has great acoustics.
