Very good view up to 50km, but during winter might not get outside. Tickets can be bought next to lighthouse

The weather was windy and quite cool, but we still went for a walk at the edge of the clif. There is a pathway. Went till the ligthhouse.

Student friendly ( student ticket cost 3 EUR). No elevator, so keep that in mind if you have problems with stairs because you have to climb a lot. But the view is beautiful

Vistit to the lighthouse was very interesting. Especially because of the ticket seller was knowledgeable and talkative. She shared useful information about the lighthouse and about the area over all. Great view and a nice walk up and down more than 500 steps.

Only a short climb to the top and you will be rewarded with stunning view to the Baltic sea as well as the surrounding nature.

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.
