  • It is a theater in Epidaurus archaeological sites have been designated as world heritage site. Preserved very well used as an amphitheater of even now. Stand on the round stone in the center of the stage and even small sounds were echoing in the theatre. Sound effects are very good.

  • 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.
  • liked the place and setting , monument itself is quite well preserved ( compared to other places ). Although staff at ticket office could be a bit more attentive and also would have liked an option for a guide, or even a voice guide . And atleast a pamphlet showing map of the place and few more details. Even the ticket was nothing exciting just a plain white paper. Considering they charged 12 euro per person.
  • Very interesting site, not only featuring the theater (fantastic acoustic) but also the remains of an city centered around one of the first "hospital" and all attributes of a former thermal center. It also has a Tholos similar to the one of Delphi. Also here they allow themselves to "reconstruct" buildings while filling gaps with new pieces, which helps seeing things as they were.
  • The history is breathtaking. However the people which act like they own it are disrespectful. The only thing they care about is the money and bonuses they get. They charged my Mother full price and when I tried to correct them, they wouldn't even consider that they had made a mistake. And of course didn't return half the ticket price. It is a shame for such people being representatives of our culture and our heritage. I am Greek and proud of it but totally ashamed of these types of people who have such positions. They don't understand that they represent a whole country and that they should be more responsible and careful. I wish I could do something to correct this type of representation.
  • I got engaged here...we were singing ' so in Love's from Cole Porter's- Kiss me Kate and my baby went down on one knee. Magical place...worth the drive from Athens. Easy from Napfilo

Where to stay in Epidavros

To discover the archeological riches of Epidavros, stay in one of this town's modest pensions near its famed World Heritage Site. However, if you'd like to embrace all that this beautiful seaside destination has to offer, it may be best to stay further away from the amphitheater and closer to the beaches. Here you can take your pick from a bundle of nicer hotels, studios, or self-sufficient apartments near the water. While you'll need to get a ride to visit the ancient site, you will have better access to the town's amenities and natural attractions.
