Greece: Ancient Epidaurus

Back to the mainland Greece to further explore the Peloponnesus peninsula, the first stop is the Ancient Epidaurus and its famous Theater. The Theater of Epidaurus is both the largest and the best preserved ancient Hellenic theater in Greece, dating back to the 4th century BC. It has a sitting capacity of 15,000 people and you can climb to the top for best views. Next to the theater is the Sanctuary of Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine. Supposedly, the stadium was used not only for Greek dramas but also for real life surgeries in front of thousands of spectators since it was believed that the adrenaline caused by the shock factor was good for you (here’s a good idea for a reality show).
