View over Odeon of Herodes Atticus - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

This panorama shows a view over the Odeon of Herodes Atticus theatre in Athens. You can not get into the theatre itself unless watching a performance. The picture also gives a view over Athens to the south of the Acropolis. It was taken in June 2016. It is well worth spending the money on an un-allocated seat in the upper circle to watch an opera under the stars.

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus lies on the southern edge of the Acropolis site in Athens. It was built in 161 AD by the Athenian magnate Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife and could seat 5,000 people. It was destroyed in 267 AD, but has recently been restored in part and is now a functioning, open-air theatre holding plays, concerts and operas.

It is sometimes confused with the larger Theatre of Dionysus, which lies further down the hill, past the Stoa of Eumenes.
