  • This place is just an experience words can not describe! It might be one of the few ancient theatres around the med, it is the only one that still is used today. Summer time is the best time to visit obviously, making sure you watch either a play or a concert, you will not be disappointed! I highly recommend making it a day trip as the place is mystical and the positive energy that surrounds it leaves you feel rejuvenated.
  • Definitely place which every tourist should see! The architecture is spectacular! The structure is great and you can experience many great views. It can get crowded, but if you are patient you can manage to score pictures with no people! I would suggest do a bit reading online about the place because information on the site is very pure, overall. The fee is 12€ which is moderate for this attraction.
  • This is a place with great historical value. There is also a museum nearby. We had a tourist guide which made a great job presenting us this special place. It can be very hot here, temperatures can reach 45°C. You simply have to remember you are in Greece.
  • Truly amazing feat of engineering. We literally heard a pin drop on the stage from the seats as some visitors demonstrated. The other areas around the theater are in ruins (and disrepair) but the theater itself is worth the trip. The first 34 rows of seats were made by the Greeks, and the top 31 rows added on by the Romans, so you get to experience a melding of eras and cultures in one place. Bring sunglasses - it gets bright bright and hot here!
  • The Absolutely Amazing Theater of Epidaurus !!! Arguably the finest ancient theater in Greece !! The outstanding acoustics here are beyond extraordinary, its really inconceivably impressive and has to be experienced to be believed, and trust me you won't ever forget it once you have. The engineering of the structure, the stunning views, the electric atmosphere sublimely combine with the spectacularly stunning sounds to create a place so tremendously special that it will always have its name sung throughout history.... Enjoy :)
