This theater is wonderful. A great quick stop to see history Just a few minutes off the new highway so it’s an easy rest break. No crowds like Delphi and no big hill to clime. If you are driving on the northern highway I suggest...More

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.

The theatre is impressive and we used it to declaim a few lines in Greek...at least, those of us who knew some did. It is very near to Ioannina so, if you are there, go and see it.
