We were advised to visit the temple from Vagia Hotel were we were staying. The host though that it was so important to visit that he drove us there himself. The museum is at the end of the port and if you look from the satellite you can see the remains of the old port in the sea. Amazing place... More

The long column is pretty impressive. You can walk right up to it. There are other structural remains at the site as well. The landscape there is beautiful as it is near the water and is very grassy and full of flowers. The cost is 2 euros which includes the museum and site which are located in the same gated... More

we walked to the site from the port and it was well worth the effort. lots to see while walking around although most of it is just rubble and holes but it was still very interesting to see how complex the ruin was. the column that is still standing is very neat and you can get right up to it...

Even though not much remains of this site, the single column is well worth the visit. The views by the single column are amazing and offer a great view of the site as a whole. The museum on the site is amazing as well

Located on the headland the site contains the archaeological museum of aegina which purports to be the oldest in Greece, the temple of Apollo is pretty impressive and would have commanded an excellent view in its day

Stumbled across this place by accident. Very interesting with a lovely little museum. Nice views over the harbour too. Definitely worth a visit.

We walked past this enclosed site near our hotel every day - it looked from the outside like a modest archaeological ruin. Not so. Inside the gates, we found the site to contain the remains of a major city settlement dating back to 3,000 BC, with successive buildings on top of older foundations. The museum and guide leaflet was informative,... More

This archaeological site is still being excavated as there are many parts which are still undiscovered.You may have seen on entry to Aegina Island by ferry the erect column which is all that...

We stayed on Aegina island for a few nights quite close to this attraction. When we eventually visited we thought it would be good just to tick it off our list. We were surprised when we did visit because the site is much more than it seems. There is a nice museum here with some impressive exhibits from Aegina's bronze... More
