Visitors can climb up the ruins of the Theatre of Dionysus and sit in the semicircle of marble seats ringed around the stage area. The theater once seated 17,000, and you can still see names of the important people inscribed on the throne-like seats in the front row.
Admission is included in your Acropolis admission ticket. Some choose to buy a combined ancient Athens admission ticket, while a skip-the-line ticket is a time-saver. Visit the theater independently, on a walking tour, or with a private guide as part of a broader tour of the Acropolis area, including the Parthenon and Erechtheion. Some tours also encompass the Acropolis Museum and other ancient Greek sites, including the Ancient Agora.
