Being thrilled by the exceptional acoustics of the amphitheatre of Epidaurus (which permit almost perfect intelligibility of unamplified spoken words from the proscenium or skene to all 15,000 spectators, regardless of their seating), another UNESCO World Heritage Site and designed by Polycleitus the Younger in the 4th century BCE, whilst watching a brilliantly staged night performance of Sophocles' "Philoctetes" in this best preserved (of all Greek) theatre which forms one of the finest pieces of classical architecture in existence.

Taking a local bus for a trip to the charming Venetian town of Navplion, the first capital of modern Greece, from 1829 to 1834 CE, and climbing up the 999 steps to the 216 m high 17th century CE Palamidi citadel, the most finely-preserved piece of Venetian military architecture (which was already captured by the Turks one year after it was completed and which remained under their control until 1822 CE).
