  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: chinalove  
    Built in the 4th century BC, it is the best preserved of all the ancient theatres in Greece. The limestone benches sat 12,000 spectators, and the acoustics are so perfect that if you stand at the top you really can hear a pin drop down in the orchestra. Greek drama is still performed here every summer.
  • What can you see and do? You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: chinalove  
    In its day, the theatre was merely an adjunct to the Sanctuary of Asklepios, one of the most important healing centres of ancient times. You can wander among the ruins, which lie in a sweet-smelling meadow surrounded by cypress trees; still feels like a place of healing. The little museum shows sculpture from the temples.

      • Nafplio
        Nafpilo, or Nauplia, makes a pleasant base for exploring the surrounding region.

        Overlooking a large bay, the town is a picturesque mix of neoclassical and Ventenian-style houses, Turkish fountains, waterfront restaurants and mosques.

        A well-preserved Venetian fort towers about the town, which offers two good museums.

      • Mycenaean acropolis of Midea

        High above the plain, the imposing acropolis of Mycenar (Mikines) was the richest and most sovereign power of its day. Agamemnon marched from here to lead the Greeks to victory against troy. The citadel was built between 1350 BC and 12 BC.

        The ramparts of massive, rough-hewn blocks are known as the Cyclopean walls, since the ancient Greeks could not conceive of anyone but the gods’ one-eyed giants being able to move them into place. Within them the Mycenaean kings heaped the gold, jewels and rich spoils from their extended wars.

        The entrance to the fortress is through to the fortress is through the awesome Lion Gate, the earliest known monumental sculpture in Europe. The heads of the beasts were never found, but it is thought they were made of gold.

      • Saronic Islands
        On even the briefest Athens holiday, you can have a taste of the island life and the open sea. The islands of the Saronic Gulf are only a couple of hours away from the Greek capital.

        Three of them – Aegina, Poros and Hydra – can be visited on a one-day cruise; ask at any travel agency or your hotel.

      • Aegina
        Aegina, situated 1 ¼ hours from Piraeus, is famed for its pistachio nuts, ceramics and local wine. It also boasts the well-preserved Temple of Aphaia, dating from the 5th century BC, and many Athenians have summer houses here.

      • Poros
        The ferry approach to Poroc – through the extremely narrow channel that separates this pine-covered island from the Peloponnese – is serenely beautiful.

        The charming port town climbs up the sides of a small hill, sporting the typical island architecture of white walls and blue woodwork. The long waterfront promenade is lined with fishing caiques and is a colourful place to inspect the day’ catch.

        This is also a popular summer resort, and offers splendid yachting, snorkeling fishing and water-skiing.

        There are many secluded coves within walking distance of the town, and a longer but pleasant hike (5km/3 miles) will bring you to the remains of a temple to Poseidon where Demosthenes, the famous Athenian orator, committed suicide rather than surrender to one of Alexander the Grea’s generals in 322 BC.

        Poros lies 2 ½ hours by ferry from Athens, and 1 ¼ hours from Aegina.

      • Corinth Canal

        It is said that the Roman Emperor Nero was the first person to attempt to realize the ancient dream of connecting the Saronic and Corinthain gulfs.

        He started the digging in AD 67 when he ceremoniously dug out the first pile of earth with a golden shovel. In those days, the ships were winched and dragged across the narrow isthmus – a system preferred to the perilous journey around the storm-lashed southern cape of the Peloponnesian peninsula.

        It was only in 1882, however, that digging started in earnest, and eleven years later, the gulfs were linked by the Corinth Canal. Almost 6.5km (4miles) long but only 25m (82ft) wide and 8m 26ft) deep. Only one ship can pass through at a time.

        • Wonderful ancient theater with astounding acoustics. Can see all in an hour or less, but sit in the top rows and enjoy the scenery for a while. Don't try to sing or act like you are an opera star in this theater or the official curmudgeon will scold you soundly. We listened to a very good tenor who sang for about 5 minutes before he was told to stop. We stopped in the gift shop but were ignored by the staff so we did not purchase anything.
        • If you are here in summer, try attending a performance which usually starts as the sun is setting. It really is an incredible experience, just remember to bring something soft to sit on and don't worry if your Ancient Greek's a bit rusty, plays are subtitled in English. We saw Seven Against Thebes, written by Aeschylus a mere century after the theatre was originally built...2300+ years ago. I was also amazed by the young Greek children in the audience calmly sitting and watching the play like it was no big deal. Lucky things for that to be a normal experience! Also the performance was momentarily upstaged by a shooting star. Unforgettable.
        • You see photos and it look great, but the experience of standing in the ancient amphitheatre is mind-blowing. Awe-inspiring. The acoustics are truly fantastic. The archaeological site is also fantastic.
        • The history is breathtaking. However the people which act like they own it are disrespectful. The only thing they care about is the money and bonuses they get. They charged my Mother full price and when I tried to correct them, they wouldn't even consider that they had made a mistake. And of course didn't return half the ticket price. It is a shame for such people being representatives of our culture and our heritage. I am Greek and proud of it but totally ashamed of these types of people who have such positions. They don't understand that they represent a whole country and that they should be more responsible and careful. I wish I could do something to correct this type of representation.
        • liked the place and setting , monument itself is quite well preserved ( compared to other places ). Although staff at ticket office could be a bit more attentive and also would have liked an option for a guide, or even a voice guide . And atleast a pamphlet showing map of the place and few more details. Even the ticket was nothing exciting just a plain white paper. Considering they charged 12 euro per person.
