Not terribly exciting; a typical ruined temple, accessible by foot, quad or tour. a couple of hours to get there, see it and get back at most.

Lots of little shops in a maze of alleyways, delicious ice cream! Dislikes: cruise ships were docked on day we visited. Got pushed around by crowds a bit

Awesome location. Very cheap admission fee. Just be wary that it is very windy up there and you need sturdy footwear.

We were too late to get into the site itself, but didn't mind (I think it closes at 1430 hrs). We had a rental car and drove up the hill, enjoying the magnificent view (well, as the driver I had to keep my eyes on the road). On top there was a great view of Kamari and the surroundings. Great... More

This is a must see if you are in kamari or perissa. We drove up as we left it a little late but you can walk up from either side. Cars only from kamari. It's a great look at life in an Ancient Greek town. The sites are amazing too over the area. Well worth a visit!

We had a rental car and drove to the site, though you can walk to it from Kamari in about an hour if you are a hill climber. If you are visiting other archaeology sites in Greece there is little new here except the spectacular views and some nice carvings.
