Veakio Theater

The Veakio Municipal Summer Theater is one of the finest points of Piraeus, on the hill of Castella (Prophet Elias), at a height of 86.59 m, and a unique breathtaking view to the sea.

The theater started operating in June 1969 and was renamed "Veakio" in July 1976, with a decision of the Municipal Council in honor of the great Greek actor Emilios Veakis (1884-1951), who was born in Piraeus .

Since it started operating, the Veakio Municipal Summer Theater has become an area of artistic expression in summer, hosting numerous Greek and foreign companies, internationally renowned folk groups and concerts of famous artists.
