This is included in the price for the theater. This is all ruins. I don't recall seeing any plaques but there may have been somewhere. I was overwhelmed with all of the ruins. This was the healing center of the complex back in the day....More

This is a very large site that is still in the process of excavation and restoration. The ruins are best visited with a guide as the onsite plaques may not provide enough information to fully appreciate the significance of the ruins. Worth a visit.

The asklepion was a healing complex to the titular god. Surrounded by picturesque woodland, the open theatre is as stuning as people claim. The wood surrounding makes it seem almost 'arcadian'.

The amphitheater is truly a wonder but so is the sanctuary. While you have to use your imagination to evoke just how specular this complex was, the birthplace of modern medicine, which stressed a holistic approach we are just now beginning to appreciate once again,...More

We three middle-aged Brits visited the Epidavros site on a mid May Saturday afternoon in the heat of the day expecting it to be packed. The €12 adult fee included the theatre and museum too. This was a great deal. As we arrived a coach...More
