    Entrance to the Acropolis

    by INSULARIUS Written Mar 14, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Unfortunately, for visitors like you, the ticket to the Acropolis is "one-entrance ticket"! Once you enter there, the ticket-collectors withdraw a part of the ticket, practically make it "invalid" for a next visit!

    That means that you can enter as nany times you wish to the Acropolis, provided that every time you pay a new entrance!

    Do not forget that costs 12 euros!

    ACROPOLIS - RETAINING WALL OF WESTERN PARADOS

    Retaining Wall

    Favorite thing: The West Parados of the Theatre of Dionysos which was built entirely of stone in the Lycurgan period ( 338 to 324 B.C.) has a retaining wall that is shorter than that of the eastern wall and serves to support the mass of earth into which the rows of seats were embedded. Here we find bases of statues and other monuments. Though much of it has been renovated, you can't help but be in awe of the Greek technology of the day.

    The Greek Theater

    by shrimp56 Written Nov 12, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: My favorite place on a Greek archaeological site is always the theater. I like to sit and imagine the ancient actors performing Sophocles or Aeschylus. My favorite theater is at Delphi overlooking the Gulf of Corinth with Mt Parnasus behind me. This picture is of the Theater of Dionysius on the south slope of the Acropolis.

    Theatre of Herodes Atticus

    by JUNLI Updated Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Theatre of Herodes Atticus

    Fondest memory:
    Another *ancient* theatre on the south-eastern slope of the Acropolis. I'm sure it has be thoroughly reconstructed recently because it looks too new and it's said there're some drama, music and dance here during the Atherns Festival.

  • At the foot of the Acropolis...

    by Jillworld Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: At the foot of the Acropolis lies the Odeum, built in 160 AD. Many concerts are still held here - even some big names like Pavorotti and Sting have performed in this ancient setting! How cool would that have been?!?! Unfortunately, there were no such events scheduled during my visits - perhaps you will have better luck!

    Fondest memory: The THEATER OF DIONYSUS was carved out of the side of the mount..inasmuch as I am an actor...It was quite a humbling experience to realise that Aristophanes was doing stand up comedy on that very spot only a couple of thousand years before...(bada-boom!)

    Favorite thing: Theatre of Dionysos

    Fondest memory:
    The enormous theatre of ancient Athenian.

    Now, there's almost nothing to see except the ruins.
