Compact easily accessible archeological site in fact I managed it on a walking stick. Great little ancient theatre with nearby odeon and Roman bathhouse. The site was virtually empty when I visited. Parking is easy out front of the main entrance. Also a good fruit and vegetable shop near the entrance if you want to top up supplies.

It is one of the places to visit in Argo. However, even in the summer, it closes at 3:30 PM. However, you can see the site behind the fence, so it isn't a problem. The theatre appears to be in good shape.

What a surprise. On street parking nearby suggested the site might not be busy. That was an understatement, no on there in the whole hour we spent there. Through the entrance gate the walkway to the main theatre provides a fantastic photo opportunity. After you walk the path, before entering the theatre head left. 100 metres past the red brick wall you will find the older smaller theatre. Yes, two theatres on one small site and the smaller one being one of the oldest in Greece, 5th century BC. Not as impressive as the main theatre but good, and the main theatre is quite special. Seating 25000 at its peak, seemingly double that of the famous, and stunningly beautiful Epidaurus theatre. The terraced seating is carved out of the rock taking full advantage of the natural arena slope. A walk to the top gives you a true appreciation of the size. And you do have to walk 70% of the way up as a path to the right off the theatre takes you to Hadrian’s fountain and the other structures to be found here. Fantastic and quiet, no one else here when we visited mid June.

In ancient times Argos was an important city state, some of the remains we see on this site, reflect to these period. The theater which was cut out from the rock, the bath house and remains of the odeon are worth a visit, opposite the street is more, but not as impressive. 10 kms outside Argos is a Heraon site.

This is a very large theatre, with a capacity of 20,000 people. Though many rows are incomplete, it is quite impressive. On the left slope there are many prickly-pears, which in september are ripe, giving a lot of colour to the site. A very interesting place to see!

The Ancient Theatre of Argos is part of the larger complex of archaeologic ruins at this extensive site. You can walk through the theater (dating to 500BC and capable of holding 50000 people) and continue through the remaining ruins, including the impressive Agora.

The area does cover some challenging terrain. Wear appropriate shoes and watch your step.

The theater is the highlight of the site which in addition features remnants of the thermes, a small theater, and other buildings. The site across the street and the museum are covered by the ticket but the museum was closed.

Although free it was disappointing that the walk to the frieze, cistern and fountain was shut. There was a gate man but we were not told this so climbed to the top of the amphitheatre to discover it for ourselves!

Argos, major town near Nafplion with Ancient Theatre of Argos, considered one of the largest ancient Greek theatres, and near it is the Agora and Baths of Argos. One of the few towns that have fee parking in commercial area. Peloponnese, Greece #Argos #Peloponnese #Greece
