Our guide spoke of the many entertainers who have performed, here, probably to appreciate how their particular talents were emphasised by the acoustics. This was being mimicked by some who did their mini-acts, standing centre stage. All down to the body heat, when the seats...More

Well preserved theater in such an interesting historical setup. The site itself is very culturally rich and has a lot to offer. Could be visited within a road trip combined with Delphi.

Epidavros Theater is amazing. Just like the guide book says you really can hear clearly anything said on the theater floor from all seats. Very popular classical site for tour groups to visit so if you arrive early your experience will be more personal.
