NileGuide Expert tip:

Theatrical performances are in Greek, but it's worth being lost in translation to see where the ancient play it got it's debut - 3,000 years ago.

Description:

Epidavrus, or Epidaurus, is one of the ancient stadiums still in existence today, completely in tact with seating for 15,000 and perfect acoustics. Located a little more than two hours outside of Athens, the site can be visited year round and is a favorite for tourists. One of the novel tricks is to drop a coin in the center of the stadium so that someone seated on the top will vouch for being able .

The summer months and the Epidaurus Festival breathe modern life into the stage designed in the 4th century BC, when it's used for a large number of classical music and theatrical performances. Book tickets early for Greek acts or large name classical musicians.

To get to Epidavros, you'll need to take a bus or hire private transportation. Should you take a bus, look for the ones heading to "Argolid." If you're four or more in number, it will be more comfortable and cost-efficient to book a ride.
