Sail the Greek islands - Make memories in the sunshine

Marvel at the Magnificence of the Epidaurus Amphitheatre

We’re pretty sure that this incredible amphitheatre will transform everyone into an admirer of ancient architecture, keen to uncover the history that contributes to the amazing atmosphere that hits you as soon as you arrive. We recommend standing centre stage and singing a little something at a normal volume: you’ll marvel at the incredible acoustics that will ensure your voice is easily audible throughout the venue, even at the very top row up on the balcony.

Discover Secrets of Olive Oil Production in the Saronic Islands

The team at the Melas Domain are so passionate about olive oil, you’ll definitely leave with a new-found appreciation for it too. As well as learning a little more about every individual step that goes into producing some of the world’s finest olive oil, you’ll also have the chance to sample the produce too. Yum!

Soak in the Sights of the Sanctuary of Asklepios

Although you’ll almost certainly be here to marvel at the incredible amphitheatre, it’s also worth having a wander around the rest of the site, much of which was used as a centre of healing in ancient times. Pop into the museum to have a look at their collection of medical instruments before pausing to appreciate the massive advancements that have been made in modern medicine!

Snorkel the Sunken City on your MedSailors Sailing Holiday

There aren’t many places where you can grab your snorkelling gear, head out into the sea and explore ancient ruins beneath the waves. The waters are warm and beautifully clear, and when you’ve finished exploring, you’ll find some pretty incredible cafés and restaurants nearby. And, well, you really can’t get much better than that!
