Address Odeon of Herodes Atticus Dionysiou Areopagitou, Athina 105 55, Greece

Located at the foot of the Acropolis, the Odeon of Herod Atticus is a theater built in 161 by Herod Atticus, a Greek philanthropist, in memory of his late wife, Regilla, who died a year earlier.

With an external diameter of 285 ft, the huge performance site could accommodate 5,000 spectators on numerous tiers. Originally, it was covered with an imposing beechwood ceiling, marble walls and multiple statues were nestled behind the stage. Today, the theater looks like a ruin but still hosts multiple events such as concerts, the 1973 Miss Universe election and the Athens Festival.
