Drive to Epidaurus and visit the 4th Century BC theatre, famous for its astonishing acoustics. Even by today's standards, this monument stands out as a unique artistic achievement through its admirable integration into the landscape and above all the perfection of its proportions and incomparable acoustics. Every summer cultural events take place in the theatre, under the title of "Musical July" but better known as a part of the much bigger annual "Athens-Epidauros Festival". Continue to Porto Heli, the beautiful and cosmopolitan peninsula, located in the NE part of the Peloponnese.

Throughout the year, there is a sea taxi service or a ferry connection from Kosta to Spetses Island. It only takes 5-15 minutes (depending on the boat) to get across to the island. Spetses is a picturesque, historic island within the Saronic Gulf with naval tradition, rich heritage and distinctive culture. It is famous for its significant contribution to the 1821 War of Independence. The picturesque old harbour and Dápia, a tourist and commercial centre where the heart of the island’s entertainment beats, are the trademarks of the town of Spetses. Take a romantic trip around the island in horse-drawn carriages and admire the grand mansions adorning the narrow-cobbled streets of the island. Alternatively, visit Ermioni, a seaside town built on a cape, surrounded by pine trees, that strongly resembles an island. You will enjoy the lovely beaches, and the picturesque little harbor lined with popular fish tavernas and clubs. Accommodation in Porto Heli area.
