  1. One of the biggest events in Athens! Every tourism must to watch at least one of these performances. The Greek National Opera, continuing a decade-long summer tradition and adapting to this year’s extraordinary circumstances, presents two Opera Galas at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. I can’t wait!
