The birds of Aristophanis was a great play to watch in the Epidauros theatre. The acoustic is very special and I highly recommend any one to go and watch any ancient play!!!

Our family visited Epidavros a couple of weeks ago and stopped by the Theater for an afternoon tour. It was a smart decision as we had a great time and were very impressed with the ancient theater with its 17,000 seats and incredible condition. Highly recommended!

It's the only really well preserved ruin at this location, at the time it could welcome up to 12,000 spectators. Impressive sound for a theater this old.

Performing the "birds" by Aristophanes under full moon, attending some 12.000 people. If you visit Greece and miss this place you MUST come back just for this...It pays back always... A magic , sacred place..

Beautiful site and the theatre is beautifully preserved. The acoustics are still amazing! One of our group quoted a few lines from Sophocles in the centre of the theatre and we heard every word sitting in the upper seats. The site is very peaceful with lots of trees and well worth a visit.

Epidavrus theater is a must when visiting Peloponnese. It's surrounded by mountains and lush green, and has a capacity of 12,000 people with perfect acoustics! Entrance is €12 for the whole archaeological area.
