Top Tours & Activities in Epidaurus
Clear skies, stone walls, and whispers of another time... if you're looking for a day trip that can really transport you to another culture, consider a vacation to Epidaurus.
One of the cornerstones of ancient Greece, Epidaurus is a fascinating place for history buffs and casual travelers alike. Take a guided tour around the city and enjoy the magnificence of ancient architecture, crumbling monuments, and the last remnants of religious sanctuaries and shrines. Epidaurus is said to be the birthplace of Apollo's son, Asclepius, so the very ground is a sacred place.
Visit the historical healing temple, which once drew thousands in hope of a miracle, or go sightseeing at the Epidaurus Theatre, a massive design that seats up to 15,000 people and is still renowned today for its exceptional acoustics. You can hear a match struck in the center of the theatre from any row!
Epidaurus was once a place where mortals slept under the stars to become closer with the gods. Fortunately for modern tourists, that's not required for sightseeing - but a trip around Epidaurus can still be a spiritual awakening and an unforgettable journey. Book your tour today and claim a little piece of Grecian history as your own.
What People Are Saying About Epidaurus
A Recommended trip. Will go again if the opportunity presents itself. Guide was knowledgable and helpful. Bus could have had a better air conditioning though this did not spoil the fun had on the day.
Very nice tour, we had plenty of good explanations from the guide whose knowledge was amazing!! The driver was very good, he drove not too fast, not too slow, and very carefully :) which is not always easy depending on the roads! The hotels were fine, mostly with a very nice view!
I enjoyed visiting both the main sites at Mycenae and Epidaurus. While impressed by entering 'Agamemnon's tomb', I learned the following day from my visit to the National Archaeological Museum in Athens that he was estimated to have lived around 400 years before that particular tomb was built! I always like wandering around ancient citadels and so my visit to Mycenae was noteworthy in that regard. I was amazed by the size, the condition and the acoustics of the Epidaurus theatre. I was also impressed by the size and depth of the canal at Corinth.
The whole trip started with a little bit of a confusion, as the pick up from hotels in Athens was done together for people taking part in different type of tours. No-one mentioned it to us and for a while we thought there was some mess up and we were in a wrong bus (almost everybody was taking 1 day tour). Fortunately, very quickly things became clearer and we could sit back, relax and enjoy the journey. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgable. The explanations weren't too lengthy but if we had some questions she was always open to go more into details. The time given to roam around the sites was absolutely perfect for us. We were very pleased with the hotels and food. Maybe expect the stay in Delphi were standard were noticeably lower. Over all we had a great time in Greece and were very satisfied.
