Greece Things to Do: 910 reviews and 1,597 photos


You should visit The Ancient Theatre of the ASKLEPIEION at EPIDAUROS, it has fascinating perfomances and great acoustics. Stands to the S.E. and is the best preserved theatre In the whole of Greece. It was the work of the architect Polyklitos Junior (4th century B.C.)
This place is huge, 55 rows, 14000 seats, but the most important thing is its acoustics!!! Imagine you're standing right in the middle of the stage, you drop a coin or whisper a word, and you friends on the last 55th row hear you just like you're only a step away. You need to check it out!!!
