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
After a 5 minute bus ride from Agia Marina we arrived at this stunning site. It was an extremely hot day but the pictures we took were stunning against the blue sky. The café/ shop opposite had lots of shade and a good choice of...More
There is usually at least one archaeological attraction that has drawn me to these islands I have visited. In the case of Aegina it was this temple. It is one of the Archaeological wonders of Greece. It is one of the more complete with 25...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
TIP: DO NOT PAY! This temple is stunning, no doubt, however you can easily walk around the perimeter fence for a great view or the temple, the Bay of Athens and even the mountains of the Peloponnese. The entry was really expensive considering the whole...More

I am not aware of any lighting at this particular site, it is defiantly not like Athens but it is still a very impressive site. Be wary of transportation buses are few so you will need to walk down to agia marina and be patient and flag down a taxi or bus
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
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 Aegina twice before and would not hesitate to visit Temple of Aphaia again. So peaceful. Fabulous views.
