Acropolis - South Slope, Athens: 75 reviews and 95 photos

Perched on the south slope of the Acropolis are two massive theatres, one being the Theatre of Dionysos. This was built around 326 AD, and held over 17,000 people. Originally, there were 64 levels for seating, of which, only about 20 survive.

The entrance is only from below, and cant be reached directly from the Acropolis. Don't confuse this theatre with the Herod theatre which is very near this sight, also on the south slope of the Acropolis.
