City Areas of Ancient Athens

Sitting at the foot of the Acropolis, the Theatre saw the birth of Drama as we know it and was the original home of plays still performed today.
"The Acropolis" means "The Sacred Rock" or "the high city." Although there are many variations of acropolises (acropoli?) in Greece, the Acropolis in Athens is the most well-known. Even today, it still acts as a sign of power that Athens used to wield.
