After your shopping time, you will be driven to the port of Kechries tracing the footsteps of St. Paul to the East.

Epidaurus is one of the most popular archaeological sites in Greece and an UNESCO’S world heritage listed monument. It is the birthplace of Apollo's son Asklepios, who was a healer. Epidaurus was the most celebrated healing center of the ancient Greek world.

Epidaurus is famous for its magnificent amphitheater. This theatre was constructed in the late 4th century BC to host religious events to honor the god Asclepius. The theater is famous for its symmetry and it is also unique because of its excellent state of conservation, which allows it to be still in use. Another fact about this theater is the perfect acoustics. During summer, it hosts performances of ancient Greek drama.

Just a few steps from the Ancient Theatre is the Sanctuary of Asklepios , a very popular healing center in the ancient times. The Archaeological Museum hosts many interesting exhibits.
