Odeon of Herod Atticus

Every summer, the Athens Festival brings world-class performances to an unorthodox range of venues across town. The most impressive is this Roman amphitheater beneath the Acropolis, where Maria Callas, Frank Sinatra and ballerina Sylvie Guillem have all graced the stage. The acoustics are astonishing, though the marble benches are unforgiving. If you can’t get a seat, the Thission outdoor cinema nearby is almost as splendid, with the illuminated Parthenon overhead—plus delicious cheese pies and cherry juice.
