Athens & Epidaurus Festival (Hellenic Festival)

Map
, Athens, , Greece

Seeing an ancient Greek tragedy—or Swan Lake, The Magic Flute, or anything, really—performed at the A.D. 160 Herodeon (Odeon of Herodes Atticus theater), with the Acropolis looming behind, may be the highlight of your visit to Athens. The huge festival, founded in 1955, brings scores of dance, drama, film, visual art, and music events to modern and historic venues across the city between June and August. Greek artists (heavily classical) and plays are well represented, but international and contemporary works are included as well. Ticket prices start at $22.
