The city of Athens? cultural showcase is the two-phase Athens Hellenic Festival, held every summer since 1955 at the magnificent 2000 year old Herod Atticus Odeon.

The ancient tiered theatre nestles at the foot of the Acropolis and during summer and autumn resounds each evening to the tune of symphony orchestras, classical drama and dance, and opera performances. The large and varied programme of international and Greek artists is available from the Athens Festival office on Stadiou Street or from the site of the Hellenic Festival

The summer section of the festival runs from June to July with performances starting at 9pm, while the autumn section covers August and September, with shows starting at 8.30pm.
