Owner description: An ancient Greek theater built in the third century.
Reviewed February 9, 2013

This is an easy day trip from Napflio, about an hour by car, we drove ourselves, signage is poor but there's only one road leading here, so it's hard to miss and people will give directions if you're lost (i.e., haven't seen any signage for some time!).

The theatre is amazing, so large and in good shape. We weren't able to attend a performance, but listened to a tourist belt into song, which was fun. The small museum doesn't have too much in it, but does mention the important and well-known healing centre that was at this site in ancient times. We checked out the theatre, which didn't take too long, and then spent the rest of the day exploring the rest of the site. We had a good guidebook, which really helped to know what we were looking at. This is a huge site and there were lots of interesting things to see, yet we were practically the only tourists in this part of the site. Apparently people would come from afar to be healed from whatever affliction and there are all kinds of testimonials of people being healed. Granted, much of the site is in ruin, but you can still sit on the benches where the sick were healed, view the baths and visit the well where they cleansed and purified themselves. All-in-all, it's quite an interesting site.

One of the best-preserved of the ancient theaters. Ancient plays are presented during the summer months.

If you're spending your holidays on Peloponnese then you have to visit this place as it's a MUST for every tourist!
The theatre itself is well presented and well kept. You can sit on the audience or try to performe something from the middle of the building. It has incredible audio capability, the sound goes to every part of the theatre - incredible!

Don't miss and go to the museum as well, the ticket which you will buy includes the entrance to it so no need to buy additional ticket. It's quite small but filled with a lot of cool statues, part of buldings which were gathered from the Epidavros place.
There's also a souvenir shop next to museum building.

There are few direct buses from Nafplio to Theatre of Epidavros.

This place is fantastic. I went on a coach trip with a guide from Athens at Easter time and it was wonderful. This ancient site is well preserved and there's a museum there too. At Easter time ther place isn't overrun with tourists and the views on the way there and back are lovely.

An overwhelming view from the top, 113 steps from the base of the theater. Its acoustics really are as astounding as everyone says. You've got to hear it for yourself!
