The much photographed theatre at Epidauros is as impressive as the brochure pictures promise and the hillside setting in pine woods idyllic.

We left the sanctuary mid- afternoon as Camperstops are few in this area. Although we are less than 40kms from Corinth, a major city, this corner of the Peloponnese feels remote. The first place we looked at to park a was Para Ilia. It is listed in Peejay's stopovers, but the beach side road has at least four no camping signs, and when we turned up a local on a motorbike came along and made it pretty clear he was none too keen on us staying the night there. This is the first time this has occurred, and we decided to move on. It was a 40km drive to Korfos, the next possible site to the north, including backtracking 10kms down a minor road. Korfos is a more substantial fishing port than it looks on the map. By road it feels remote, but I suspect it's just a short hop by boat to larger communities on nearby islands, such as Aegina.
