We stopped to eat lunch at this wonderfully remodeled location. They have kept the authentic look, but modernized the interior and put in a small coffee/tea house and restaurant. The menu has something for everybody, especially hungry bicyclists on vacation. The area is like a backyard type of experience and the inside is like someone’s living room. They rent out several spaces for company events too. It’s a hidden gem in every sense of the word an definitely worth a visit! I’d go out of my way to go here again!

Odeon of Herodes Atticus

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus is a stone theatre structure located on the southwest slope of the Acropolis of Athens. It was built in 161 AD by the Athenian magnate Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla. It was originally a steep-sloped theater with a three-story stone front wall and a wooden roof made of expensive cedar of Lebanon timber. It was used as a venue for music concerts with a capacity of 5,000. It lasted intact until it was destroyed and left in ruins by the Heruli in 267 AD.

The audience stands and the orchestra (stage) were restored using Pentelic marble in the 1950s. Since then it has been the main venue of the Athens Festival, which runs from May through October each year, featuring a variety of acclaimed Greek as well as International performances.
