Where does one even begin to talk about all that Athens has to offer? It is home to some of the most ancient, earliest buildings in western civilisation, and almost every place you visit has been the site of an epic historical event or a mythological legend. From the very steps on which the likes of Aristotle and Socrates set the foundations of western philosophy to dozens of open-air theatres, Athens is hard to outdo. When you buy or sell Athens event tickets on StubHub, you're truly entering a world of unimaginable richness, populated by the ghosts of the gods of Olympus themselves.
A theatrical feast in Athens.
Theatre-goers will find themselves in their natural element in Athens. It is, after all, the city that invented the open-air auditorium, and opportunities to watch live performances surrounded by ancient archaeology are plentiful. Right alongside these ancient structures, you'll find modern nightclubs and music concerts, which lends a surreal quality to the entire experience. Athens has always been home to three Greek sporting superpowers: Olympiacos, Panathinaikos and AEK Athens, so football fans have much to look forward to when visiting the city. Keep an eye on StubHub for game schedules – but you'll have to choose between Olympiacos FC and Panathinaikos FC in this partisan city! AEK Athens tickets are also sought-after by basketball fans, with the club having fielded the first Greek sports team to win a Euro championship of any kind. Get hold of Athens event tickets and experience this traditional three-way rivalry.
Athens – the ultimate melting pot of eras
One of the most easily accessible musical venues opens up to you when you buy Odeon of Herodes Atticus tickets – the name alone is evocative of everything one associates with Athens and its history. Its boards have been trodden by a wide variety of world stars, running the gamut from Andrea Bocellli to Florence and the Machine. There's also the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, which has built a reputation for putting on some of the more ancient Greek plays. Fans of stand-up comedy should keep an eye out for Gazi Music Hall – it's one of the city's premier live comedy venues. A visit to Athens would of course be incomplete without watching traditional dancing, and the Dora Stratou Theatre has become a regular host to large-scale exhibitions of this Greek national pastime. You'll need a palate cleanser after all this history, so see what's on at Faliro Tae Kwon Do Stadium when you buy Athens event tickets.
Nearby cities to visit
Athens isn't too far from another pivotal city in world history, Istanbul. Known variously as Constantinople and Byzantium, depending on who was in control, you shouldn't pass up the chance to take a short flight across the stunning Aegean Sea. Directly south is the island of Crete, which will also well reward a visit. Looking north, Tirana in Albania is fairly nearby, while Bulgaria's Sofia also beckons. Book your tickets on StubHub now.
