The theatre, built in the 4th century BC, is one of the best preserved theatres in Greece and is still used nowadays as it hosts the Epidaurus Festival every summer. Right next to the theatre you can visit Asclepieion, which was the most celebrated healing center of the Classical world, the place where ill people went in the hope of being cured by the God of medicine Asclepius.

In the morning, will take you to the town of ancient Olympia which was the birthplace of the Olympic Games that took place in 776 BC. This town has been the centre of attention during the ancient years and is still today the starting point of the Olympic Flame that is born there, once every four years prior to the new Games. You will visit the archaeological site, one of the easiest sites to pass through since it has fairly level wide paths to cross, lavatories and plenty of shade under the trees.
