Theatre of Dionysos

Recommended
When visiting the Acropolis, don't miss Dionysus, the most prestigious Antique theatre, where all the masterpieces of the classical repertory were staged. In the 6C BC, a first stage was built in the sacred enclosure dedicated to Dionysus, where the famous Dionysian festivals were held. These installations gave way at the start of the 5C BC to a genuine theatre. Modified by the Romans and abandoned after the barbarian invasions, it was restored at the end of the 19C.
