The Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus


The Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus built in a ravine in 340 BC by the architect Poliklitos jr. from Argos, according to Pausanias. It has wonderful acoustics, a capacity of 13,000 spectators and is divided into two parts. The first part is that of 21 rows of seats for the common people and the second part is that of 34 seats for the priests and rulers.

The Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus is in a very good condition. We have got the Epidaurus festival institution that has been going on for many years. At Epidaurus has appeared, apart from some of the largest Greek actors as Alexis Minotis, Thanos Kotsopoulos, Anna Synodinou Thanasis Vengos etc., and the famous Greek soprano Maria Callas.

Poros island

The scenic and popular island of Poros is a prime destination for both greek and foreign tourists due to its proximity and easy access to Athens.

Poros is the island of peace, romance and jauntiness. It is overgrown with pine trees which reach the rugged shores or the sandy beaches. The residents of Poros are like all islands, spontaneous, decent and hospitable.
