Ancient Epidaurus is one of the most important archaeological sites in Greece. Famous for the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, dedicated to the ancient Greek God of medicine, it is considered to be the most perfect theatre in regards to both acoustics and aesthetics.
Epidaurus is located on the northeastern side of Peloponnese, in the concave of the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, in the region of Argolis. The Sanctuary of Asklepios at Epidaurus was added to the UNESCO List of World Heritage Sites in 1988
A living ancient theatre, a one-of-a-kind archaeological site and the famous Asclepius of antiquity are all located within a beautiful natural landscape that makes for an ideal beach and culture holiday. The region can also be combined with road trips to Nafplion, Mycenae and Porto Heli.
Pretty Greek villages and beaches can be found in close distance to the ancient site, such as the seaside village of Ancient Epidaurus, a charming atmospheric fishing place with small beaches, fish taverns, and studios.
Coastal and cosmopolitan Old Epidaurus
This seaside settlement in the Peloponnese, with its latticework of beaches, took life thanks to the performances in the ancient theatre. Every summer, dozens of yachts and sailboats moor in its harbour. Actors and theatre aficionados are drawn to it and many celebrities have built their villas here, among the citrus and olive groves.
A picturesque settlement spreading across the rocky slopes, this sheltered little harbour has an attractive marina. From the Venetian castle, you can admire the Vothylas Gorge.
