  • Visit to the temple. Unfortunately all signs were blurred. Unfortunately you could read nothing more. Had a little more than expected

  • We had rented a quad for the tour of the island and the temple was well stated but lost in the countryside. The site is very pretty with a stone path surrounded by flowering shrubs, the temple also. On the other hand, to have explanations, it is better to have a guide to the backpacker or lonely planet with itself. Signs are illegible and must be ten years!

  • Small temple with no further explanation on a table. For "to go" ok but no more remains to be developed

  • We took the bus and went there by walking many miles in heat. Worth it
  • This ancient Greek temple / early Christian basilica is really interesting. It is located on top of a high hill, so it watches all over down the valley. Of the original temple only a few pieces are still up, most of them are on the ground nearby. A small part of the temple has been rebuilt in order to see how it would have looked like, but that's an hard work because of the Christian basilica built on it. There are a couple information points, but they are too damaged to be legible.
  • The temple is located in a lovely surrounding. The area is not very large but still impressive. And please don't forget to visit the small museum! Its building received a design award
  • Nice spot to visit. Free entry. Closed on Mondays. Some steps to climb but not exhausting.
  • After seeing the Acropolis, this is pretty underwhelming. Nice drive to see the Naxos countryside away from the beaches.

Where to stay in Naxos

As with most island destinations, rooms in Naxos tend to cost more the closer you get to the sea. Beach hotels and seaside apartments come at a steep price, but they offer spacious rooms and modern amenities just minutes from the island's finest beaches. Stay in Naxos Town for quick access to the best shopping and dining options, or choose one of the island's smaller settlements if you prefer a quieter base. Village inns provide simply furnished rooms and no frills, but they also charge less than the resort hotels.
