  • It is a beautiful theatre, famous for its perfect acoustics which is entertaining as each a @ is the test in multiple languages. Must cross to the Peloponnese by one of its famous sites.

  • Worth the visit! The theater is absolutely stunning and admission for students from EU is for free if you have a student card. There is a lot of dogs and cats that will follow you if they see you have food! They won't attack you though :P Lower parts of the complex are being renovated. Expect the visit to take 1.5hrs at a very chilled pace with enough time to admire the theater. Acoustics is great so be careful what you say at the bottom because even people sitting all the way at the top will hear it!
  • Beautiful and nicely restored historical place. There are not so many tourists comparing to other historical places near Athens. It's worth a visit. Make sure you make a test from the top how good you can hear people talking/singing at the bottom.
  • A must see . With a huge seating capacity ,built in the medieval times,it has enviable acoustics ,which needless to say had no modern day amplifier systems,and has seen performances from the likes of Yanni. Tear a paper or clap with your hands standing centre stage and it will be heard by the person seated in the last row!!!!! What an engineering marvel. I was told that the seats have hollow spaces inside which contributes to the echoeing of sounds and greater amplification of the same. My wish ...To perform to a live audience here one Day!
  • This is an excellent site and definitely worth a visit. Much of the Epidaurus still stands and is in very good condition. However, there are heavy restrictions on what you can and can’t do, and the site is weather dependent due to it being outdoors.
  • Wonderful ancient theater with astounding acoustics. Can see all in an hour or less, but sit in the top rows and enjoy the scenery for a while. Don't try to sing or act like you are an opera star in this theater or the official curmudgeon will scold you soundly. We listened to a very good tenor who sang for about 5 minutes before he was told to stop. We stopped in the gift shop but were ignored by the staff so we did not purchase anything.
