“The best unsung site in the Argolid.”

Ancient Theatre of Argos
Ranked #2 of 9 things to do in Argos

Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We had an amazing site all to ourselves for a few hours. The theater is cut into solid rock, and the nearby Roman baths are raw, showing many features remaining from the original structure.

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, just a shame not to be able to have a closer look.

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 usually closed in the afternoon.
