Getting There

By Car: If you’re coming from Athens or Corinth, turn left for Epidaurus immediately after the Corinth Canal and then follow the coast road to Ancient Epidaurus (or Epidaurus Theater), not to Nea Epidaurus or Palea Epidaurus. From Nafplion, follow the signs for Epidaurus and keep an eye out for signs for the Theater (the theater and sanctuary are poorly signposted, but there are some road signs saying ANCIENT THEATER). If you drive to Epidaurus from Nafplion for a performance, be alert: The road will be clogged with buses and other travelers driving the road for the first time.

By Bus: Two buses a day run from the Stathmos Leoforia Peloponnisou station in Athens, 100 Kifissou (tel. 210/512-4910), to Epidaurus. The trip takes about 3 hours and the fare is 15€; for schedules, go to www.ktelargolida.gr. There are three buses a day from the Nafplion bus station, off Plateia Kapodistrias (tel. 27520/27-323); extra buses are scheduled when there are performances at the Theater of Epidaurus. This bus takes about an hour and the fare is 5€..
