Now hear me out. I usually go to see a performance at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus theatre every time I visit Athens. A few times I have seen operas there. In fact, I have only been to operas at this theatre, having never been to an opera at any other time in my life. I have to say it is an amazing experience. If you are going this year and you have never been to an opera, Toscana is being performed here as part of the Athens & Epidaurus Festival. Do yourself a favour and go see it. You can find details here: https://whyathens.com/events/tosca-greek-national-opera/

And to get you in the mood, here are a couple of photos of the last opera I went to see there:

These photos are stunning! One thing I love about Greece is that you will always have a good view no matter how far back you're sitting.

True. I actually was in the "cheapest" seats at 20 euro and the proximity to the stage was perfect. Also with the acoustics, there was no electronic amplification but everything could be heard very clearly.

As a music lover myself, I must say that the ancient Greeks had some of the most sophisticated sound engineering!!

This is excellent advice with stunning photos! It’s so easy to book, the theatre is welcoming, and it’s always an experience of a lifetime. Sadly many travelers don’t think of it. The most popular shows sell out quickly so it’s good to plan ahead.

Restaurants with a View in Athens

I am putting together a list of restaurants to try in Athens and I want to have multiple moods on it... Sometimes, I want to dine purely with a view, sometimes I just want a really great meal.

I found this article - what do you guys think of these places in the article? Do you know of any great places with a view in Athens? Ideally the food will also be excellent:


Sometimes I don't have luck with TripAdvisor places, because I am not sure the people voting are necessarily locals...

View of the Acropolis from Thisseio

Thisseio is a great place for cafes and rooftop bars and restaraunts that have stunning views of the acropolis both during the day and at night. This picture was taken from Thisseio View, a cafe named perfectly for one of the best views in the city. The food is pretty good, nothing amazing but definitely worth going for a drink and a snack.
