The Dodoni archeological site harbours an amazing ancient theatre that has been painstakingly restored. Other than this, one can see the ruins of the ancient sanctuary dedicated to Zeus. Archeologists are still at work on the site.

Dodoni is an ancient site of an oracle that predated Delphi and has a fantastic theatre. It is under renovation but is still fantastic. Nearby are a number of temples. A fascinating site to wander around.

Older than Delphi, they say, so it has a fascinating history. Set in a beautiful valley underneath some wooded hills, the archaeology isn't as extensive as somewhere like Delphi, but still has the impressive set piece that is the theatre, as well as a few...More
