Odeon of Herodes Atticus

This is a stone theater structure located right next to the Acropolis of Athens.  It was built in 161 AD by Hoerodes Atticus in memory of his wife.  It has a total capacity of 5,000 audience members, which is a huge venue for the time period it was built.  Today, Greece still uses this location for concerts.  I didn’t get to have that experience, but I bet it would be outstanding.  How couldn’t it be outstanding?
