Only fifteen minutes north of Athens, the Amphiareion of Oropos lies in a valley set between olive groves and wooded hills. My favourite destination for a morning trip outside the city, it is a stunningly peaceful and beautiful site that few people seem to visit.
It can’t be the cost of the 2 euro entrance ticket that is putting visitors off, I think this ancient sanctuary is just very little known!
Opening hours: Winter: 8:00-15:00 Summer: Mon-Sun 8:00-15:00
Oropos (Prefecture of Attiki) Telephone: +30 22950 62144, 210-32.13.122, 32.40.563

Lovely! Made it in my bucket list for next weekend 😀
Thank you for the introduction and video, Ευχαριστώ πολύ ❤
Glad you like it, I think you will really love the site and luckily, I heard it was unaffected by the recent fires around Athens.
Thank God… I am a bit stressed about what I am going to see on my way there though… I believe it’s a huge catastrophe…
that looks great 🙂
It’s a wonderful spot and very much off the beaten track!
