We went to see the Greek tragedy at the villas outdoor theater. The actors did a great job and we really enjoyed the production. The people working there were very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend seeing a performance there!!!

The renovation of this beautiful part of the water dam, and of course limits the overall impression. Certainly, it gives more time to study other parts of the content.One late afternoon one hour before closing, you have almost the whole area for yourself.

We registered online and just indicated how many in our party. They sent an eticket to my phone for each person in our group. The fee is a parking fee so you do not actually pay per person.
