More Epidaurus
tips & insights

Current physical condition

Although the amphitheatre is in good condition, that's not the case with the other main Epidaurus structures including the sanctuary and stadium. They are in such a state of severe ruin that they appeal mainly to visitors who have a keen interest in Greek archaeology.

Epidaurus Museum

You may not find the Epidaurus Museum exciting because many of its exhibited sculpted works are copies, not the originals, which now reside in Athens, Greece.


The summer sun in Greece can unmercifully beat down on your head - and the Epidaurus site has scant shade opportunities. Bring a hat.

Getting there

Epidaurus is a 2.5 hour drive from Athens, making it a popular daytrip from the Greek capital. Most tourists add Mycenea (a Hillman Wonders bronze medal winner) to their itinerary.
