Odeon of Herodes Atticus September 2014 Performances

One of the things you should definitely do while visiting Athens, especially in September, is to watch a show in the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. With just a 15-minute walk from our hostel you can visit one of the best ancient Greek theaters, which is absolutely magical by night. The experience of watching a show there is unique and you should not be afraid of the language barrier since there are lots of ballet performances, opera plays and music concerts. The Odeon Of Herodes Atticus  was built in 161 AD by the Athenian magnate Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla.
