Live the legend of the goddess at the hilltop spot where her temple once stood, one of the most celebrated places in the ancient Greek world for its association with the cult of Aphrodite.
Let the past come to life in the land where Aphrodite once roamed and ancient pilgrims came from far and wide to worship her.
