Unfortunately I wasn't able to get inside the gates and walk around for this one due to the 3pm close and my decision to prioritise other attractions. It was, however, still possible to steal a glimpse through the gates though. Quite an impressive looking theatre,...More

A rather unique place where are you can feel the history. It felt amazing to sit on the exact same seats ancients sat and watched theatre. It is also unique because it is carved on the rock, the seats were not move there.

This theatre is unique as it was built into the mountain side rock not put in place. Not sure if much maintenance is done but it is free entry so can't complain. A nice site to see anyway and you can climb the stairs to

One of the largest ancient theatre. Excavation began 1n 1892! Although analematic walls are now absent (demolished) acoustics is very well. Some times performances are given nowadays. A monument that unexpectedly pops up and reminds that Greece is a civilization generator. Unfortunately the place is...More

While not fully restored like the theater of Epidavros this theater and site are well worth the visit. You are able to walk up the stairs to the very top which is bigger than Epidavros and the view is amazing. The accoustics are still very...More

The theatre was quite impressive, more so than the bathhouse. The theatre has decayed quite a bit over time. Be sure to stand on the stone at the bottom of the theatre to hear it amplify!

It was an interesting experience to walk around the site and to be able to view the ruins close up. Although it was interesting, I think more could be done to make it more tourist-friendly. Remember to take a walk up the mountain and view...More

A little unkempt but worth visiting. The amphitheater steps are not blocks set in place like Epidavros, but the whole thing is carved out of the hillside. Amazing. There is a tall mud brick wall which was the first I'd seen in Greek antiquity. It...More

Mostly intact this theater is carved in stone, and it is unique in that respect. The visit is free although the place looks like it lacks any maintenance from the local authorities. Across from the theater the old 'agora' is inviting but again not very...More

If you don't like crowds ( it's deserted!) and you prefer au naturel - this may be the place for you. It's a perfect example of an Ancient Greek amphitheatre, but so poorly maintained and unloved, it's up to the visitor to love & appreciate...More
