I took the hotel bus tour and really enjoyed it. The acoustics are marvelous. You can hear little details of people speaking from the top. This is considered best enjoyed during a festival in the summer with plays and concerts to take advantage of the best acoustics in the world.

Easily the most stunning theater we visited, deserving of it's reputation. We sat in the highest seats and listened to a Frenchman recite poetry.

I visited the theatre for the second time, this time with my family. I wanted to write a spectacular advise for everyone to visit, but unfortunately I can't. The 26th of December is a day off for public servants here in Greece. It seems that Greeks are visiting the archeological places during working days and hours. Public servants .... you... More

If you are making the trip anywhere in Epidaurus you must go and see the theater at Epidaurus. The reconstruction of the theater area has created an area where you can fully experience the ancient sound amplification and this theater is still used for performances today. A must see.

The harmony and the suitable proportions of its measures make it the best and well preserved example of Greek architecture dealing with public buildings. Try to attend a performance here in order to listen to the wonderful echo in each single place...

When arriving I did not expect to find such a large and well preserved amphitheater. Well worth a visit!

This is a great theatre. It is definitely a must see in the area. The entrance costs €6. Its only 1h drive from Athens.Try to do your own soundcheck. The acoustic is amazing. If you have time, I suggest you to drive to Nafplio, a little town, only 30 mins far away from the Theatre.

the theater and its setting make it a must see. special about the theater is that its acoustics are even after so many years amazing. at this day it's still possible to do theater or opera without using microphones. when standing in the middle of the stage everyone can hear exactly what you say even on normal voice and you...

The Amphi theatre, beautifully situated in a lush region, is incredible, and naturally the highlight of the site - yet there's so much more than 'just' the theatre. While nowhere near as big as for example Pompeii, the sanctuary of Asklepios - or rather the ruins there of still covers a substantial area. Walking around the site, there's a good... More
