Epidaurus Theater

Continuing with the photos from the 1973 family vacation to Greece, here's the famous Epidaurus Theater. Again, it's an amazing thing - built so long ago, it holds 15,000 people and the acoustics are so perfect that anybody in the audience can hear words spoken from the stage.

  3. Oh, yes! We went to the Epidaurus Theater and were amazed at the acoustics! Our tour guide spoke in a very quiet voice and we could hear her perfectly!! Terrific capture, Al, as always! Thanks for the memories! Hugs to Socks!!

  6. Magnificent. It's fun to visit and not know exactly where you'll be from one time to the next. I like seeing your take on the places we've been (like Vancouver below), getting ideas for places we hope to visit (the sand dunes NP) and the places like this we'll never get to!

  8. What serendipity! The original name of Cavtat on my post today was Epidaurus when it was a Greek outpost in the 6th century...

  10. This is quite a long way to get to your seat. :D It looks like there's an illusion that one will fall forward. It's good these pictures survived. :D
