Ancient theatre - Odeon Of Herodes Atticus | Athens, Greece

,

It was a real pleasure for me to take pictures of this remarkable ancient theatre, created from stone. Those of you, who have visited the capital of Greece, know that it is located on the southwest slope of the famous Acropolis.

 

Odeon of Herodes Atticus – past and present

This building is among the best examples of Antique architecture, which construction works were finalized in 161 AD. The ancient theatre was renovated in 1950, in order to be preserved for the future and to serve as a very special venue of cultural events.

 

Artists who have performed at Odeon Of Herodes

This ancient theatre in Athens has been actively used as an amphitheater on which stage many world-known musicians, singers and opera stars have performed. Some of them are: Maria Callas, Luciano Pavarotti, Plácido Domingo, José Carreras, Montserrat Caballé, Vangelis, Yanni, Jean Michel Jarre, Paco de Lucía, Diana Ross, Ennio Morricone.

I would very, very much like to see a play or to attend a concert at this amazing place, one day. Of course, I envy those of you, who have already done it. Listening to beautiful music at such ancient amphitheater, with its unique background, must feel like real happiness.

Get it On Your Wall

It took us with Nico few minutes to book the flight to San Cristobal de la Laguna after we googled „the sunniest places in Europe in November “. Fact, there was not much choice – the rainy mood seems to spread over Europe in this time. However, what we found about Canary Islands surprised us enormously. The all Canary Islands seemed to offer sunny weather, palms and turquois view on Ocean. And Tenerife… Tenerife seemed to us to be different to all…

Do you know that in one small island you can have four (it’s not hyperbole) seasons of the year? With drive, over 20 km further north or south you can either experience summer or winter. This vision was too crazy for us to say it’s truth – don’t trust blog articles until you experience it by yourself. The prices of accommodation and renting car after first research appeared to us to be very friendly, so we didn’t hesitate too long.
