Great little place, a bit out of the way but free entry and an amazingly well preserved and unique ampitheatre, with great sights of the nearby coast! Perfect for a short break and some great photos, would recommend if you're in the area.

Amazing ruins sprawling over the hillside with a great original theatre being the centrepiece. The remains of a silver mine are visible and a wash plant has been restored. Hard to find but easy to access.

This is an open site - useful as so many sites are closed on Mondays. It is easy to find just slightly north of Lavrio. The site is strangely split into two parts - divided by a fence. Entering through the gate you quickly come...More

We only knew this site was here because of a guide book we bought at Sounio, which mentioned it. There are no signs to it from the main road; you just have to guess, though it is just possible to make out the theatre from...More

Among the oldest ancient demes of Attica, Thorikos was one of the 12 settlements that, according to tradition, took part in the political unification under Athens. In a very good condition,not far from Lavrio old town.

A picturesque ancient Greek theater located near the ancient town of Thoriko which is very near to the port of Lavrion. The theater has been restored and various plays as well as small concerts take place. It worth while your visit.
