Possibly the scariest drive I have every undertaken but it was nice to go up there (not sure I would have done it knowing the roads though). These are ruins which are situated high up so you do get magnificent views. You can walk freely among the ruins - no people up there (just a few bulls and mountain goats). Didn't spend long up here. Only one board of info available, very general.

A long walk from Sami or space to park if you drive up. Not much to see apart from a pile of stones but good views out across Sami and the sea.

The Acropolis can be reached by a very scenic drive up the mountain from Sami, however, we chose to walk up the mountain through the forest to the Acropolis from the edge of Sami - although the path is well marked it is narrow in places, and would suggest wearing trainers or walking boots. The walk was fantastic, we were followed along the walk with hundreds of beautiful butterflies, it was so tranquil. When the path opened out, the Acropolis ruined buildings could be seen scattered all over the top of the hill, what a tremendous sight. would definitely recommend a visit.

Impressive place to visit. Perfect example how impressive the architecture of ancient Greece was, easily imagine while seeing the size of processed stone blocks. But the most impresive are the hundreds of years old olive trees all around the place. The shapes given by the years is amazing. And again loats of goats all around as everywhere on the island:)
