We came to Greece for 5 days, and one of them we spent visiting Mycenae and Epidavros. The theater was just amazing and filled us with totally unexpected awe. It just pops up from the trees out of nowhere and is grand!

It's an incredible example of ancient architecture in a beautiful setting. It's an easy public bus trip from Nafplio. The history is fascinating.

You see photos and it look great, but the experience of standing in the ancient amphitheatre is mind-blowing. Awe-inspiring. The acoustics are truly fantastic. The archaeological site is also fantastic.

Go to the cheap seats and just stair out at this wonder. The beautiful hills are the background for what have been an incredible venue so long ago. Unlike many archaeological sites in Greece, this place is still intact.

The place was famous for the Sanctuary of the god of medicine, Asclepius, and the miraculous healings. Have to admit, that after having seen an archeological site after another, did not find the ruins or the museum especially interesting. What makes this site so very...More

Visit greekfestival dot gr slash en slash events and check it in April or May. On the right there is a drop down menu. Choose "Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus" (remove the space and one dot from the link )
