Now anchored off this convivial small village of Palaia Epidhavros overlooked by the huge church...all alone at anchor, although there are boats on the town quay.
The main attraction here is the Epidhavros theatre, about 30 minutes by car inland. One of the best preserved of all Greek theatres and one of the finest pieces of classical architecture in existence....has been restored in certain areas, but is still mostly all original.
With 14000 seats, the acoustics are absolutely perfect...the summer concerts are well renowned.
In the past, the original site was the Santuary of Askeplion, a religious centre for curing the sick...at the time, it was comparable to Delphi, but unfortunately very few ruins remain.
We won't be visiting this time, as far too hot and far too many tourists....we had the pleasure during a Spring when my brother was onboard a few years ago.
However, a definite MUST....
Enjoying chats and drinks with Neville and Gosia from 'Stormy Petrel', who recently came thru the Corinth Canal.
