Theatre of Dionysus
To get the best view of the Theatre of Dionysus you need to climb the Acropolis and look over the Southern Wall. The theatre was build in the sixth centure BCE, and holds about 15000 people. It is widely considered to be the first ever build theatre, and is the birthplace of Greek theatre.
PS: your Acropolis ticket includes the theatre, and you are welcome to wonder around the ancient site.
The Erechtheion is one of the buildings that forms teh Acropolis in Athens, Greece. It honours both Athena (godess of athens) and Posidean (god of the sea). It has a lovely porch with 6 figures supporting the roof. The building is actually smaller than originally planned due to budgetary constraints due to the cost of the Peloponnesian war (yes even in ancient times budget was a concern).
Epidaurus is mostly known for its beautiful theatre, but it was also a site for athletic games. Here is the is the stadium in which athletics events were held over 2300 years ago.
