We went to Epidaurus to spend time at the ancient amphitheater, famed for its classic Greek construction and astounding acoustics. Climb to the 55th row of seats and enjoy the panoramic views from atop. Surrounded by lush greenery, this UNESCO-listed monument is a perfect blend...More

It is a very well-preserved amphitheater from ancient times large enough to accommodate 12,000 people. The condition was very OK. There was also a small museum and some other ancient buildings nearby. The latter were mainly rocks in the ground. 5 stars for the amphitheater...More

Epidavros is about an hour out of Athens and is well worth the trip. The Ancient Theatre is astounding and the wider site gives a real insight into Ancient Greece.

The Epidaurus Theatre was built in the 4th century and can accommodate over 12,000 people. It is very well preserved and still functional during the summer months. It is well worth a visit.

My 16-day itinerary on Greece Mainland- Opinions? (13 Replies)
My husband and I (40’s/50’s) are planning on a 16-night “road trip” on mainland Greece in mid-October. We like to travel independently and tend to take our time at museums and sites… reading information and contemplating art, history and life. We also like taking long walks and lingering in nature. We don’t like to be constantly on the move or changing locations… yet we want to see it all! We rarely spend only 1 night in a location, preferring 3-5 nights to explore an area more thoroughly....More

It sounds like you will be fine with the driving, since you have experience in Portugal and Italy. Most of your route is over fairly decent roads with shoulders. Side-trip adventures into the hills may encounter some more adventurous driving, but nothing too crazy. My only suggestion would be if you're on a really narrow road, with blind corners… keep your driver's window cracked a little, and your stereo on low volume. Often, truck and bus drivers will honk their horns before they round a...More
Advice on where to add extra days? (3 Replies)
We are traveling to in Greece in October for the first time, and plan to spend our time enjoying walks in beautiful surroundings and exploring ancient/interesting sites. We like to travel relatively slow, and enjoy getting to know an area before moving on, and we will have a car on the mainland. As it turns out, I will be able to add 2 nights to my planned itinerary, so I'm looking for advice on where to spend the 2 additional nights. I'd prefer not to add an additional stop, although please...More

Give Santorini a miss altogether and spend your time exploring the Peloponnese with a couple of days in Athens at the end, you won't regret it!
My revised 16-day road trip in Greece itinerary: Feedback? (23 Replies)
My husband and I (40s/50’s) are planning on a 16-day road trip in Greece in October. We’ll be splitting our time about 50/50 between nature and archeological sites. We are “collecting” UNESCO sites, which was part of our original reason for planning to come to Greece (we hope to see 5). I probably won’t have reservations for the middle portion of our trip (highly unusual for me… thank for the encouragement, tsipouro!) so we can be a bit flexible and “go with the flow”, especially in the...More

Looking good & I think if you do remain flexible you will have a great trip. As you are coming long haul to Greece if you can add an extra day or two then go ahead. You will never regret having the extra time in Greece. But probably better to extend staying somewhere on your list rather than adding more places. Re the Vouraikos Gorge. Not saying you should do this BUT what I did was park at Diakofto, take the train as far as Zachlorou (the most pituresque stretch), then walked back down to...More
