Epidaurus Things to Do: 27 reviews and 62 photos
The theatre at Epidavros is the best-preserved example of a classical Greek amphitheatre in the Mediterranean and a person on the top row can hear a conversation being spoken in normal tones in the centre of the theatre, a remarkable feat since the theatre can hold 14,000 people. It has been said that you can 'hear a pin drop,' in the centre of the theatre stage from the top row. When I last visited, there was a group of students rehearsing a play with their teacher. I was sitting at the top and indeed could clearly hear the voice of the students reciting their parts. This unique phenomenon is a combination of the position of the marble in the amphitheatre and the natural surroundings.
The Epidavros Festival takes place here in the summer months with programs of Ancient Greek Dramas.
