The temple was definetely worth the visit. Also the view around the temple was beautiful. We carried our almost one year old child around but you can get close to the temple with strollers as well. There is a cafe and a souvenier shop.

Came here during a large group tour as one of our optional excursions. Its about an 1hr+ drive from Athens. Really great scenery. if you have lots of time to do this trip there are some interesting places I wished we could have stopped at for food or swimming. This is a really great site, relatively easy walk with an incline and few stairs, not hard for kids or elderly to do if they take it slow. Can be a bit windy so watch the hats. Not much shade on the top so be prepared for that. There is a really great restaurant and bar area with nice bathrooms. Not much to do at the site itself, a few information boards and the temple ruin at the top are pretty awesome, but that is it. You can take a walk down a longer path also. The view out into the ocean is amazing. We came during the day so did not get to see the sunset. I have heard it is best to come for the sunset. A great stop if you are driving by but not much if you are driving a long ways out of the way.

In addition to seeing the temple site, spending the end of the evening viewing the sunset over the sea/mountains and viewing the cove below is simply worth the drive/walk. The walk up the hill is quite simple and not strenous.

It's perfect to be there during the sunset! The ticket it's about seven euro. Every Sunday from end of October until end of March the entrance is free for all

A bit outside of Athens, make sure to see it during sunset. It’s a great trek, not as busy as some of the other monuments.
