The Iconic Lycabettus Theater in Athens to Reopen by Summer 2022

Open-air amphitheater on Lycabettus Hill with panoramic views of Athens set to reopen for the public in 2022.


Greece’s state property company, ETAD, has met a longstanding demand of the City of Athens in conceding the management of the iconic Lycabettus Theater to the municipality.

Sitting at the top of Lycabettus Hill, the open-air amphitheater designed by architect Takis Zenetos has been closed since 2008 due to safety concerns.

 

The City of Athens has pledged to launch a tender for a project to strengthen the structure of the theater so that it can be operational by the summer of 2022, as well as move ahead with a planned makeover of the area surrounding the theater undertaken by Topio7 architecture and landscape design firm.
