The theater was very impressive, with beautiful views over the surrounding hills. I would recommend going to the temple of Asclepios and the sanctuary next door as well. Although these (unlike the theatre) are ruins there were good signs helping you to work out what each building would have been. Also very easy to get to, with well kept roads... More

wait for the big bus loads to leave, take some time to sit and take in this amazing site...seating around 14000 people and still hosting performances today, the acoustics are incredible...$6 euro entry which covers the museum and the entire archaeological site

Amazing structure, perfect acoustics, and still in use. Small museum on site has a few items, but the theater is the reason to come. One of our group sang softly from the bottom, and those at the top heard every word. Unbelievable!

If you want to connect to ancient drama, commedy and tragedy this is your place. It has that echo that sends you back, when you just visit, imagine watching a play taking place there.

This the best theater I have seen in Greece and Selcuk,Turkey. Well preserved, huge and gives idea about knowledge of people about managing crowd and acoustics. When we were there young group of boys and girls were singing some fast songs while standing in center area. We could enjoy it sitting far away. Seems some sound amplification might be taking...

Just a magical place where you can feel and hear the history. Set amongst the pine trees and mountains, with the most spectacular view in Greece.

This was a theatre in the olden times. If you stood in the middle of the circle and spoke the sound gets amplified all the way up to the back. According to the tour guide, the architecture of this theatre also has some crazy Pythagoras calculation where if you take the number of rows at the second section divide by... More
