Went to this site while visiting the museum for a university trip. In the past trips this site had not been open but now the public is able to enter and have a wander around the site. It is incredibly peaceful and well worth a visit.

The museum and the archeological site give you very strange impressions and make you wonder for many things. There is elevator in order the museum to be wheelchair accessible but the elevator is out of operation. There is an automatic vending machine but it is out of operation (and nobody places a sign as I saw some people loosing money... More

Unfortunately very little remained of the Temple. On top of that it was not a good idea to set a metal(???) walkway to walk around the Temple. I was under the impression I am buying a poor imitation of possible emotions... You have to know the complex is closed at 3.00 pm.

The picture above isn't the actual temple, but the more dramatic parts of the ruins. The site has history going back to 1000+ BC with early graves, ruins of temple, stoa, stone bridge, spring and early Christian basilica. The site has it's own well maintained museum. Check out the opening hours as when I went, I think it was 8am... More

We hit the ruins first. They are indeed serene. Be sure to see the remains of the ancient road to Athens. There is also a small church dating to 15th century that is worth seeing. Several of the frescoes have pictures of saints with the eyes removed by the Turks, as the story was told to me. The museum is... More

This serene temple and museum is a haven of quiet and peace; the location is beautiful and the museum well curated and interesting. It is a bit off the beaten track for Athens archeological sites, but well worth it. Enjoy the temple in into garden setting surrounded by wild flowers and a quietly bubbling spring; drop into the church; then... More

We visited Vravrona in early April, ehen the combination of the blooming nature with the ruins of Artemis's temple and the nearby stoa are just wonderful. The museum is a must visit. Most of all, the statues of little girls and boys placed in procession in the centre of one of the main rooms. However, one can see numerous other... More

Me and my husband were in honeymoon and we went to this temple during the winter. Athens is simply great, for its history and for its amazing, friendly and lovely people. All the temples are great! I love Greece, I love everything there. Please go!

We arrived after the closing time, which is I believe is 3:00pm. However we were able to view from outside the chain link fence. It was our last day in Greece, so we weren't able to return the next day. We were staying at a hotel nearby and took our map on my smartphone and were able to find it... More
