“well worth the trip!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

We were staying in Pythagorio and went by bicycle to visit the temple ruins. It was 3 Euros to get in and it said it was open from 9.30-3.30 each day. You get given a small information leaflet on the way in which is useful. There are signs as you go round explaining what each part is although we found these a bit tricky to decipher sometimes! There is a small cafe and some loos, if you walk past the cafe there is also an information room where there are photos of some of the early excavations, I think that some people missed this as it is not sign posted and we only happened on it by chance.
I think that the review below is really rather ignorant, I am not sure what they expected to see but these ruins are 4000 years old in places which personally I find pretty amazing, I certainly dont begrudge paying a measly 3 Euros to continue the work to excavate and preserve this site.

“Samos Island Greece, the Magical Island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

It is an amazing place and you are free to roam about at will and marvel at how it must have been when it was completed all those years ago.

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

It is only 3 euros to get in and is well worth it. The site is excavated well and has people standing by to answer any questions you may have. There is also a nice cafe in the grounds.
