Step back in time. Walk through a pine-studded forest to reach this impressive ancient theater. Incredible acoustics set against a verdant backdrop. Children may fidget through the performance as the seats are not so comfortable.
- The ancient theatre of Epidaurus is considered an architectural and acoustical masterpiece. It was built in the third century BC with a capacity of over 10,000 people. The great works of Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides and Aristophanes are performed here on each weekend of June, July and August. A bus departs from the KTEL Terminal at 100 Kifissou Street to the Epidaurus Theatre at 5p, and returns to Athens right after the end of the performance (Tel. +30 210 513 4588).
