  • The theatre is beautiful but the view around the monument is amazing. Comes in your mind the answer why the ancient Greeks chose this place for the famous Oracle along with Delphi. In addition considered brother Oracle with Oracle of Amun Ra in Egypt in the OASIS Sioya.

  • In the beautiful archaeological museum of Ioannina we had been made to known the matriarchal originating Dodoni and its further development to the classical Greek religion: GAIA, the earth goddess, whose oak here was revered and whose sounds such as rustling leaves gave response the seeking of advice, to Zeus, Apollo, Aphrodite... On the September day of our visit, Dodoni was a quiet, wonderfully remote place where still an oak tree stands next to the stone remains of the former Temple of Zeus and many other ruins found until down to the foundations of a Byzantine Church, and - most impressive - with a good erhaltnen amphitheatre.

  • This theater is the largest I'd seen yet in Greece, seating 15,000. You can't walk into the seats though which was sad. There are also temples and other ruins worth seeing at the site.
