The grass was extremely high and I stepped in a lot of thorny plants. It's beauty doesn't really show due to the bad maintenance. There were plants on the structure itself, the path you had to walk and it's own floor. Though the pillar was pretty impressive and easy to reach. The place itself is bigger than I expected. It...

I have been to Samos 6 times now and have always wanted to go here as Im interested in Greek history and to say it is 10/15 mins away from where I stay I don't know why I haven't been before. The place itself is just beautiful and very interesting for people who are into history if not its just... More

We were staying in Pythagorion and decided to vist this historical place as it is a UNESCO world heritage site. As we didn't have a car rental, we decided to take the bus but our holiday rep informed us that we had missed it that morning. However, she informed us that if we followed the beach heading towards Ireon we... More

not much to see really, you need a lot of imagination to go back in time, I prefer Efese in Turkey but the setting is nice

It's good for a visit if you are in the area as it'll give you a good perspective of how great the ancient temple and the surrounding buildings were. Other than that the whole place reminds a jungle as it's full of plants that should have been attended for. If you visit during summer noon please note that there is... More

Plenty to see. You should spend a good few hours exploring the site. Easy to find and plenty of parking.

If you are on Samos, this is a place you must visit - alone the size of the area is impressive - do not miss this experience. Remember lots of water - this is not a place with lots and stalls and tourist hubbub

if you like greek history this place is a must. you would need a car to get there ideally, its right next to the coast & all on its own so quite atmospheric. plenty of info on boards all around the site, & a small charge for entry. we found it interesting plus relaxing as you can stroll around &...
