Epidaurus is the remains of an ancient city, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, located by the Saronic Gulf in southern Greece.

The principal archeological monuments include the temple of Asklepios, the Tholos and the Theater.

The archaeological site of Epidaurus sprawls over three levels:

1. Highest up, at an altitude of 1,410 ft (430 m), the Sanctuary of Apollo Maleatas overlooks the rest of the ruins.

2. Lower down, to the southwest, at approximately 1,180 ft (360 m), is the Theatre.

3. At the bottom, the Sanctuary of Asclepios and its various buildings – baths, gymnasium, palaestra, stadium and katagogeion (dormitories for patients) – stretch over a western shelf located at between 1,150 ft (320 m) and 1,1083 ft (330 m) altitude.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
