Ioannina: Dodoni Theater & Archaeological Museum tour

1. Ioannina: Dodoni Theater & Archaeological Museum tour

Dodoni ancient theater is an impressive sight with a capacity of approximately 18,000 spectators, making it one of the largest ancient theaters in Greece. This historic venue was used to celebrate the “Naion” in honor of Naios Zeus, where games and theatrical performances took place. Although it was destroyed and repaired twice, it is still a testament to ancient Greek architecture. The essential architectural parts of the theater, such as the stage, the orchestra, and the caveat, remain intact. The Archaeological Museum of Ioannina is a treasure trove of history, with over 3,000 artifacts from all over Epirus. The collections are displayed in seven halls, the central aisle, and three atria with a surface of 1,200 square meters, covering a vast period from the Lower Paleolithic to late Roman times. One of the most impressive exhibits is the artifacts from the sanctuary of Dodoni, one of the greatest sanctuaries of the Greek world. The new permanent exhibition retains the museum's Panepirotic dimension, highlighting the area’s distinct character and history during antiquity. The exhibition is structured around three axes: chronological, geographical, and thematic, which intertwine to create a compelling narrative of the region’s history.
