The theater is a real masterpiece! it is still used and famous for the impressive acoustic. In fact the tour guide use to rip a little piece of paper from the stage to demonstrate it, everybody in the theater can hear it! It was built in the third century BC with a capacity of over 10,000 people.
During the summer months the Ellenic festival take place and it is possible to book ahead and go. I am sure it would be well worth it! There are special buses from Athens and Nauplion to go. More informations can be found here.

After having visited the theater do not miss a stroll around the rest of the archeological site, there are a bunch of very interesting columns and buildings.

At the end of the visit, if you feel like a quiet lunch and an afternoon at the beach you can drive to Archea Epidavros, follow the sign to Sunken city and park the car. There is a family run taverna where you can have a meal and a little further you can book a snorkeling tour to visit the sunk ruins.
