We looked into the busses and private tours, and even renting scooters, but just ended up hiring a cab. The gentleman then offered to take us there, stop at the monastery on the way, and bring us to a swimming beach afterward for about 30€...More

Not to be missed if you are on the island of Aegina. It truly is an amazing piece of architecture. The story of the temple is shown on display boards throughout the monument. It is €5 to get in and is worth it. There are...More

The story of the temple, build to honour the daugther of Zeus and Karme, is a fine temple which is more complete than the Parthenon at Acropolis. The reason why this temple only gets three stars, is the lack of information at the ground. Nothing...More

Aegina island is so close to Piraeus and Athens that it would be pity not to visit it. The Temple of Aphaia is a must to see, mind that you have to choose the season and the time of the day. Greek summers are hot...More

The Temple of Aphaia was about a 15 minute drive from the docks at Aegina. It’s a pleasant drive through small towns and pistachio orchards. The countryside is very scenic. My husband, my adult daughter and I got a cab and made the trip. Our...More

Well preserved temple with minimal foot traffic. Well worth the drive up to visit it. Stop at the gift shop across the street and have some gelato while you admire the views.

From my recollection, 100 yd from gate. Not a huge slope but ground obviously not entirely even as this is an antiquity. The cost was I think about €20 for taxi and €12 for entrance for two. I really loved it. I have visited... More

There is probably a 100 yard walk up hill but flat at the top where temple is located. I would not say it is steep but a gradual incline.
