Epidavros is a historic region of Argolida in the eastern side, located at the foot of mountains Arachnaio, Premium and Tithio, where Asclepius was born according to mythology.

Amidst the blue of the Saronic Gulf, well protected on its own smaller gulf of Epidavros, with the scent from the valley's orange blossoms meeting the sea breeze in its picturesque and friendly port, with pine trees descending its slopes to offer their shade to its beautiful beaches, Ancient Epidavros, traditional yet modern, both tranquil and cosmopolitan, is always ready to welcome travellers whatever the season.

Quiet pleasant people, occupied in fishing, tending orange groves and tourism, a mild climate, beautiful surroundings and a sound infrastructure provide the framework for what today's tourist wants: a pleasant stay, recreation by the sea yet close to greenery, opportunities for all kinds of entertainment and a chance to see many sights in the area.

Midway along the east coast of the Argolid district, with its houses spread out amphitheatrically from the sea inland, the little town is built on the site of the ancient city-state of Epidavros. The local church, St. Nicholas, is built on the ruins of the Temple of Hera and nearby is the Sanctuary of Asklepios the Ancient Theatre that attracts thousands of visitors every day.

Among all the ancient theatres, Epidaurus theatre is the most beautiful and best preserved. Destined for the fun of the patients of Asklipieio, it had a capacity of 13,000 spectators. It was divided into two parts: 21-rows of seats aimed for the citizens and 34-rows of seats part aimed for the priests and rulers.

The superb acoustics as well as the very well preserved construction, contributed to the creation of Epidaurus Festival S.A., an institution that contributed to the cultural revival of the theatre.
