Theatre of Dionysus

The slopes of the Acropolis are important for its many springs and have been inhabited since prehistoric times. There are many archaeological remains, one of the most important the Theatre of Dionysus on the southern slope, entrance almost opposite the Acropolis Museum.

It was here that classical Greek drama was born and flourished.

Nearby the Sanctuary of Dionysus and bronze foundries. Further along the slope Odeon of Herodes Atticus, used for music.
