This temple is lovely to see if you have extra time on the island. If you are only making a short day trip, I would instead recommend that you rent a car and instead prioritise a drive around the island, taking in the sights, and...More

It is truly grand. A spectacular Temple located up on a mountain! It was truly worth it! Kids are free and 6 Euro per adult

Close to the northern seacoast of Aegina, looking both at Parthenon and Poseidon Temple at Sunion, it remains a must-to-visit temple despite the stealing of precious parts by German.

I almost don't want to leave a review of this place, because it's so stunningly tranquil. It's one of the best temple sites I've been to, and with very few visitors, too.

The Temple of Afaia Athina stands at the highest point of the island, just before the visitor starts descending to the resort of Agia Marina. It is well preserved, although empty of all it sculptures which 'reside' at the Museum of Berlin. There is a...More

We have enjoyed exploring this archaeological site. It's way more impressive in reality than in any picture of it that we have seen before, due to the surrounding nature and great scenery from the top of the hill. I can't figure out how this temple...More

Magnifence and feelings of overwhelm as you climb the steps to the Temple of Aphaia. How brilliant these people were, to create such a masterpiece in times of old. Was under maintenance when we were there, but still brilliant photo opportunity. Can be over-raught with...More

Usually I've a fair idea built up in my mind before visiting a site either through photographs or literature but the scale and setting of this site left me in awe. It's a credit to the keepers of this monument and a lesson for others...More

A beautiful monument & surroundings in the north of the island. Then we had a coffee in the nearby shop with the amazing view - it was quiet and peaceful! Very nice!

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... 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... 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.
