The archaeological site of Epidaurus is located on the north eastern side of Peloponnese and is only a couple of hours drive from Athens. Epidaurus was declared a UNESCO world heritage site since 1988 as it is one the most important archaeological sites in Greece. You can enjoy our Epidaurus Private Family Guided Tour and learn all about it and why it is known as the birthplace of medicine and a destination known for healing.
The Sanctuary of Epidaurus comprises of the Theatre, the Temples of Artemis and Asklepius, the Tholos, the Enkoimeterion, the Propylaia, the Banqueting Hall, the baths as well as the sport and hospital facilities. Try not to miss with your kids in Epidaurus:
Upon arrival, you will visit the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus. It represents the most well preserved ancient theatre in Greece and is the greatest examples of ancient Greek architecture. The theatre of Epidaurus was constructed so as to host performances and ceremonies to honor the gods. The theatre of Epidaurus is world famous for its acoustics.
During the Epidaurus Private Family Guided Tour you can add more fun at this activity for your children. Ask them to climb to the top of the stone stairs at the top of the theater and drop a coin. As it is said, the acoustics of the theatre allow for a coin to be heard from the highest seat.
The Asklepieion of Epidaurus or The sanctuary of Asklepius, used to be a sacred healing place devoted to Asklepius, the son of Apollo. Asklepius was the god who had the power to cure people from their pain and illness.
Next to the Asklepieion there is the stadium: so as to honor Asklepius for his healing powers and its father Apollo, festivities and athletic games were organised every four years.
At the same area we also provide a Private Family Guided Tour to Olympia.
