Built below the majestic rock of the Acropolis in the 2nd century BC, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus is widely considered one of the most iconic theatres in the world. Since the inception of the Athens Festival in 1955, legendary artists have performed at the Odeon, including Maria Callas, Herbert von Karajan, Igor Stravinsky, Rudolf Nureyev, and Leonard Bernstein, to name but a few.
Music lovers can look forward to spellbinding evenings featuring leading symphony orchestras, operas, and concerts with famous contemporary solo artists and musical groups. After each performance, make sure to have a refreshing stroll at Dionysiou Areopagitou, one of the loveliest pedestrian streets in Athens.
Getting there: By Metro Red Line, Akropoli station, 750 m. from the entrance of the venue, on Dionysiou Areopagitou street, a 10-minute walk.
