Guide to Epidavros

A theatre for history, culture and scenic beauty.

A historical centre of healing and a modern-day destination for culture, Epidavros will enliven the senses and relax the mind to a backdrop of idyllic Greek hillside villages.

When enjoying a tour of the beautiful Peloponnese islands on board an equally beautiful luxury charter yacht, it is well-advised to make a stop at the town of Epidavros. The town is situated within the municipality of Epidaurus, not far from Nafplion, and once attracted visitors from throughout Mediterranean to its Sanctuary of Asklepios - a shrine to the God of Medicine and believed to be a centre of healing powers. The site has now been recognised for its magnificence with a spot on the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage list.

Today the ancient town continues to be one of the most popular destination points in Greece although it is now better known for the world-famous Theatre of Epidavros. For around 2,000 years the impressive ampitheatre has been the stage for operas and plays and still comes to life every summer during the colourful Hellenic Festival. Every Friday and Saturday night in July and August visitors come from far and wide to pack-out the arena and watch modern reenactments of classical Greek dramas, something that is unmissable for anyone chartering in the region.

The town’s setting is also something of a theatrical experience with pine-clad hills and villages that weave into the tumbling orange and olive groves. During an afternoon ashore you can walk through the winding roads up to the Mycenaean burial monuments and up to the top of Katarahi to see the Temple of Artemis. Then head back down for a refreshing swim off one of the excellent beaches lapped by famously clear waters such as the Kalamaki Beach - an isolated cove found in the Ancient Epidavros Bay.
