Recommend taking the signposted path from Town as it's worth the excellent ice cream after walking up a scraggy path/road 15mins to her temple

The position of the temple contributes to its beauty. It also represents a pre-classical ancient goddess and has the feeling of the echoes of this past

This temple is in very good condition and steeped in local tradition and stories. Our tour guide was excellent and very informative with perfect english. The views were stunning and the entire place was surrounded by pistachio groves.

Awesome place, forms a triangle from space with Acropolis and Sounio, the area and place are super calm, you can see Athens and all over!

This is a 30-minute taxi drive from the Aegina port across the island - with lovely views of the sea, island landscape, pistachio trees and live trees. Views are spell binding - definitely worth a visit.

we were advised by our hosts from Vagia Hotel to visit the temple of goddess Aphaia. The goddess that cannot be seen! What a nice walk through the mountain! It took us one hour but well worth it. The temple is exquisite... Dont forget to...More

The site is in an impressive state - very well preserved and the entrance fee is only 6€ :) There is not much else to see besides the temple ruins themselves, and a small museum

Hiked from Vagia through what I presume is old olive tree plantations and then followed the road up to the temple, taking about an hour with stops to admire the stunning view featuring rolling hills, mountains and Pireaus in the distance. Fascinating to see such...More

I definitely recommend this place if you are going to Aegina. It is a well maintained site. Spectacular view of the island and waters. Very quite and peaceful around.

We hired mountain bikes in aegina town. The way to the temple is not flat, but the more rewarding when you arrive: also impressive view on Athens.

Regarding George's question, what was the starting point for the reference of 100 yards? Are you talking about an entrance, then up a hill? Anyone know cost estimate for this excursion? I am taking the 3 island day tour with Viator. They don't have any info on their site, but wondering what to expect. Was the excursion including a bus/taxi ride from one point to the entrance?

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

I'm visiting Aegina on one of those one-day-cruises out of Piraeus, On Aegina, the cruise offers an excursion that takes you to the temple. But, my walking is not the greatest, if I take this, am I still faced with an uphill climb to actually reach the temple? If so, how strenuous? i.e how close would the bus actually take me? George

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.
What are the opening days and hours?
