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.

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.
