About the Tour
This organized excursion will start with a visit to the Corinth Canal, which is about 80 kilometers from Athens and is a narrow strip of land that unites Central Greece with the Peloponnese. The emblematic canal that has been opened since 1893 (6.3 kilometers wide) connects the Saronic Gulf to the Corinthian Gulf and is an international hub of maritime transport, serving annually 12,000 ships of all nationalities. Continuing for approximately 70 km the beautiful route is the Epidaurus with its main archaeological sites: The Propylaea (built in the Mycenaean times), the Doric temple of Asclepius, the Tholos (which was also the most famous building of the sanctuary ), Abato, the house of the priests, temples for Artemis, the sanctuary of Apollo and finally the Epidaurus Theater or Sanctuary of Asclepius (built in a ravine in 340 BC), it is world famous for its excellent acoustics, it can serve up to 15,000 people and as it’s usual for Greek theaters (as opposed to Roman), the view of the green landscape behind the stage is a vital part of it. The hours of access to the above spaces are from 8:00 am until 20:00, while the single ticket (7 days duration) is 12€ in standard and 6€ reduced.
