Sunken City of Epidauros

Imagine diving into the crystal-clear waters of the Saronic Gulf, where the remains of an ancient city lie hidden beneath the rippling surface. This submerged city, believed to date back to the 4th century BC.

The origins of the Sunken City is still a mystery. Some historians speculate that it was once a bustling port city, serving as a vital hub for maritime trade and commerce in the region. Others suggest that it may have been a strategic naval outpost or even a sacred site with ties to the ancient cults of Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine.

Seeing the Sunken City

This sunken city is just two meters below sea level and there you will see walls, foundations of buildings, amphorae of huge dimensions and paved sections. You will find the city just a few meters from the shore.

The best way to see the city is by Snorkeling. Don’t forget to put swimming shoes as the place is full of sea urchin.

Another cool way to see the city is with a drone.

Parking

There is also a restaurant near, that they do not have too many options and for vegan only vegetables, but it is ok.

The parking is not that big , but we managed to fit our RV without any issue. We are in May now, I think that in the high season the place can be really crowded.
