Ancient Epidavros is famous for best preserved ancient theatre where in the summer Greek dramas are performed during the weekends. It is also the birthplace of modern medicine and healing and this is obvious by the lushness of it's natural surroundings. The climate of Ancient Epidavros is very mild and therefore visitors can swim in the Saronic Gulf from March to October. The location of Ancient Epidavros is such that although on the mainland gives the feeling of being on an island and yet only 1.5 hr drive to Athens. It is predominantly a farming community specialising in citrus fruit and olives. One thing that the village can definitely boast about is it's excellent tavernas serving a variety of food and freshly caught fish. Recently a small ancient theatre, older than the famous one has been discovered within the village and music concerts are held there during the month of July. At the same time there is a fiesta with music exhibiting all local produce.
