Ancient theatre of Larissa opens to public after 20 centuries
One of the largest and well-preserved theatres of Greek antiquity opened to the public for the first time after 2,000 years last week in the city of Larissa in Thessaly, Greece.
Constructed almost exclusively of marble with rich relief decoration, the theatre could host up to 12,000 spectators.
Starting last week, visitors have access to the area of the orchestra and the stage, since restoration works are still in progress for the other parts of the theatre.
Entrance to the site, located some 200 km north of Athens, is free.
